In the past twenty years, Philip Frey has developed into one of Maine’s finest landscape painters. Known as a brilliant colorist, Frey paints Maine’s harbors and islands with a bold palette that captures the light and moods of his home state, from the streets of Ellsworth and Portland to Monhegan and Acadia National Park.
Frey studied at Columbus College of Art and Design and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Painting from Syracuse University in 1990. He is a longtime practitioner of Buddha Dharma and has traveled to Nepal and India to study with renowned teachers. Frey lives in Downeast Maine, where he maintains a full-time studio nestled in the woods.
Carl Little is the author of numerous art books, including monographs on John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Dahlov Ipcar, Beverly Hallam, Francis Hamabe, Joel Babb, William Irvine, Jeffery Becton, Wendy Turner, Irene Olivieri, and Philip Barter. Eric Hopkins: Above and Beyond won the first John N. Cole Prize from Maine Writers & Publishers Alliance. Carl Little moved to Mount Desert Island in 1989. He holds degrees from Dartmouth, Columbia, and Middlebury. Little is the communications manager at the Maine Community Foundation.
