Leslie Anderson- Maine Painter

Leslie Anderson- Maine Painter

My summer subject is the landscape of the Blue Hill Peninsula, where I often work as a painter-for-hire, interpreting people’s special places in oils and watercolors. In winter, working in my Portland studio, I paint still life and people and places glimpsed during days of summer painting. Whether out-of-doors or in my studio, my artistic concerns are the same: light against dark, pattern and repetition, and sumptuous, harmonious color.

Sedgwick studio is open seasonally, please check my website for hours and updates.

Word: a Blue Hill Literary Arts Festival

Word is a three-day, annual literary festival in Blue Hill, gathering a community of readers and writers to celebrate the written and spoken word alongside those who may not typically be engaged in those pursuits.

While the Blue Hill Peninsula has a rich and vibrant artistic and literary tradition, most literary events occur piecemeal and during the busy summer months while the shoulder season of summer/fall offers few events. In addition, there is no unifying community structure that brings word-lovers together to celebrate. Establishing a festival to occur each October will encourage year- round residents and visitors to connect with one another, enjoying author readings, workshops, performances, and panels without the distractions of the peninsula’s hectic summer schedule. Word will share and promote the many voices of Maine, including local voices not always given the opportunity to be heard, and will seek out diverse voices to ensure a full and rich cultural experience.

In addition to events scheduled throughout the weekend, a literary marketplace will serve as a central meeting ground for the festival, providing vendors and nonprofits an opportunity to share information about their roles in the literary life of the peninsula, as well as encourage festival-goers to interact and engage in crafts and collaborative activities.

In addition to the festival, Word promotes literary events year-round.

Courthouse Gallery

Karin and Michael Wilkes founded Courthouse Gallery Fine Art in 2006 with a mission to present high-quality works of art through curated exhibitions and special events. The gallery is housed in Ellsworth’s historic courthouse and registry of deeds, two beautifully restored 1830s Greek revival buildings offering over 4500 square feet of exhibition space. The combination of this historic site and the ability to exhibit a wide range of artistic styles in a spacious gallery has made Courthouse Gallery Fine Art a destination for art collectors statewide and beyond. A large-scale sculpture park occupies the sweeping lawn out front.

The Wilkeses, who have always been passionate about art, represent a select stable of contemporary Maine artists, including established artists, whose work can be found in major collections nationally, emerging artists, and estates. They view the gallery as a place where the conversation about Maine’s role in American art continues through a rotating schedule of solo and group exhibitions highlighting contemporary painting, sculpture, and photography by artists living or working in Maine. They also host artists’ talks, special exhibitions, events, and guest speakers. In 2012, the Wilkeses began publishing a line of fine art books under the imprint Marshall Wilkes to celebrate and document Maine-inspired artists and art history.

We do this by developing and implementing innovative programs that provide value for today’s fishermen and drive more sustainable management approaches for future fisheries. An essential component of our work is connecting the knowledge of fishermen, the findings of scientists, and the world of policy makers.

Handmade Papers Gallery

Handmade Papers Gallery

Virginia Sarsfield, a production hand paper maker since 1994 produces a wide variety of artist-grade papers drawing inspiration from the world around her. Bits of fibers from walks in the woods or along the sea often find their way into some of the papers. The result is a rich palette of handmade papers in many different shades and textures. The lampshades produced from her papers are one-of-a-kind and add unique luminosity to any lamp. Working closely with each client, we help match the size, shape, and paper of the lampshade with the designated lamp base to maximize the beauty and functionality of each finished piece.
Stop by the gallery to view our wide variety of lampshades and artist-grade papers, or to have a custom lampshade made for that special lamp.

Don’t forget to check the other artists featured at the Gallery:
James Dodds, Maritime Linocuts
Hillary Hutton, Weaver
Jim Webb, Clay Artist
Lou Charlett, Woodworker
