GEOFF BLADON

“Lobsters in Lincolnville”. Value: $450     

CLICK HERE FOR ABSENTEE BID FORM.

Geoff began painting as a child in Montreal, Quebec and hasn’t stopped since. His work in Maine has been influenced by Connie Hayes and Colin Page. His paintings may be seen at Tidemark Gallery in Waldoboro and River Arts in Damariscotta.

I went to Lincolnville to paint the ferry dock, which I thought would be consistent with the theme. It was a grey, cloudy, raw day. Then, I saw the cheerful candy cane colors of McLaughlin’s Lobster Shack, which said “PAINT ME!”.  I did.

 

 

 

 

 

KIM BERNARD

“Currents”. Encaustic, lead. 12″ x 12″. Value: $1200    (MINIMUM BID OF $100)

CLICK HERE FOR ABSENTEE BID FORM.    

Kim Bernard creates kinetic sculpture, installations and works in encaustic. She received her BFA from Parsons and her MFA from Mass Art. Bernard teaches at MECA, Plymouth State University and offers workshops throughout New England. She also organizes the Rockland Sculpture Race to be held this year on August 11.

I’ve been working on a series of encaustic pieces lately that all include meandering lines that flow in a non-linear manner. There’s much movement, peaks and valleys, ups and downs, sometimes coming full circle, but always moving and progressing, like the journey of life.

With the eyes of an artist, the words of a poet, and the mind of a scientist, Eric Hopkins has engaged numerous people through his art and with his thoughts about life on this Big Blue Planet.  He captures the dynamic forces and rhythms of nature in watercolors, oils, blown glass, mixed media, and photography. His vision focuses on the Big Picture of the natural world, geological and geographical forms, and the exchange of energy between Earth, Water, and Sky. From this intimate study of nature, Eric has developed a keen awareness of light, form, color, and pattern, which is reflected in all of his work.

Eric is a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design and has taught at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and Pilchuck Glass School. He has exhibited at the Farnsworth Art Museum, Portland Museum of Art, Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Waterfall Arts Center, University of Maine Museum of Art, and a number of galleries nationally. Eric’s paintings and glass are held in many private and public collections, including the Farnsworth Art Museum, Portland Museum of Art, Bates College Museum of Art, University of Southern Maine, Corning Museum of Glass, Wustum Museum of Fine Arts, and the U.S. Department of State Art in Embassies: Bahamas, Mali, Pakistan, Philippines, and the West Indies. He is also represented in the corporate collections of Central Maine Power, L.L. Bean, Johnson Wax, Sanyo Securities, TD Bank, and Idexx Laboratories.

 

RONALD FRONTIN and ROBERT BIRD

“Light Keepers Daughter”.   Signed and numbered (181 of 600). Donated by Ronald Frontin and the artist’s dealer, Robert Bird.  Value: $1200        

CLICK HERE FOR ABSENTEE BID FORM.

Ronald Frontin is a contemporary Maine painter who continues the American realist tradition of Winslow Homer and Thomas Eakins with his fastidiously rendered figural images set on the coast and in the countryside. His subjects include the hardworking fisherman and farmers of Maine and his family and friends.  Frontin was born in Camden, Maine, in 1962 and today resides near the town of Rockland. Indeed, he only lived out of his home state briefly, while attending the Philadelphia College of Art (1981-85) and while apprenticing in Andalusia, Pennsylvania, with the noted realist painter Nelson Shanks (1985-88). Frontin’s outdoor scenes portray the hardy individuals who make their living from the fields, rivers, beaches and bays of Maine. The artist, who himself enjoys working in the open air, is interested in painting people who are physically engaged with nature and who are unaware that they are being studied; the opposite of posed works, these images convey respect for the grueling and absorbing tasks of outdoor life and capture the particular light and mood of the Maine landscape.With their poetic undertones and personal subject matter, Frontin’s paintings have an affinity with those of Andrew Wyeth. Soundly crafted and thoughtfully composed, Frontin’s works reveal his desire not to impose his own point of view on a subject, but rather to derive inspiration directly from it, allowing its intrinsic nature to emerge.
