Richard Boyd Art Gallery
15 Epps Street

For the past ten years Richard Boyd Art Gallery has installed an annual exhibition of paintings from a variety of genres in a range of styles and mediums depicting imagery of Maine. This year’s exhibit is another great show of paintings documenting scenes in Maine through the eyes of artists with diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and styles. The exhibit features works that exemplify the diversity of subject matter in Maine which has long been a source of inspiration for artists. The show is comprised of paintings depicting scenes from the interior, to the islands, coves, and working waterfronts in Maine. Each work is the artist’s interpretation of a scene in Maine. Scenes of Maine includes original paintings by gallery artists’ Amy Bickford – acrylic based gouache and watercolor; Patricia Chandler - oil, cold wax medium, and mixed media; Kevin Daley – oil; Randy Eckard – watercolor; Jane Herbert – acrylic; Roy Perkinson – pastels; and Wilson Stewart - acrylic. The exhibit is open free of charge between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily from October 1st through October 30th, 2020.
