Diane Dubreuil, Plein Air

Last Thursday evening, I took a trip up to the Harlow Gallery in Hallowell for the Monthly Art Talk to hear Diane Dubreuil, a master plein air artist, speak about her one-month artist residency in Brittany, France and to see a slide show of her time in France, her finished works, and her sketches and journals which stood quite well on their own.  It was a very engaging session.  Her web site - - does not do justice to her works.  They really need to be seen in person.  The evening reinforced the urge to get outside to paint, on my own or with the Deb Arter class through Merrymeeting Adult Ed (we are two session into a six session program) or through plein air sessions being set up by Diane D.  Now if the darn rain would stop!!

Art2011 at Harlow Gallery

"Early Spring", Joe Godleski, oil on canvas, 30" X 10"
"Early Spring" has been juried into the Art2011 exhibit at the Harlow Gallery in Hallowell.  The exhibit kicks off with an opening reception Friday May 6th 5-8pm and runs through May 28th.  VĂ©ronique Plesch and Margaret Libby, both professors in the art department at Colby College, judged Art2011, the 16th annual juried art exhibition at the Harlow Gallery.  57 works were chosen out of total of 327 submitted works.  Needless to say, I am quite pleased and I am really looking forward to the show.
