Gem of a Gallery in Picturesque Seaside Town of Kennebunk in Maine! We have been patrons of this wonderfully-diverse art gallery for years now and are proud owners of paintings, wind sculptures, and glass art from various artists that the gallery represents... We have commissioned pieces and also bought from the gallery displays directly and, throughout each transaction, the staff has been wonderful to deal with and has made the process seamless - special kudos go out to Natalie (Gallery Director & Manager) and Abby (Marketing Director/Event & Studio Coordinator). Be sure to stop by and hit all of the buildings that encompass the gallery as each one has special treasures to be admired and, most certainly, one of these will touch your spirit and speak to your heart, as all good art does...!

If you are visiting Portland, take the 15-minute ferry ride to Peaks Island. During the spring and summer months, it runs every hour at 15 past the hour. It's a great place for a relaxing stroll and more. During a walk around Peaks Island, we visited the Richard Boyd Art Gallery. It had a good collection with a mix of local artists and those from outside of the area who provided oil and watercolor paintings and sculptures. The Gallery is owned by an artist and his wife. He does a lot of work with ceramics and creates unique pieces. We end up buying a beautiful and unique decorative vase. Visit it for enjoyment as you view the art work. Be aware, that you might end up buying--but the prices are reasonable. It's about a ten-minute leisurely walk from the ferry.

Jan Kilburn Watercolor Studio and Gallery

Reviewed By NChoagie

Jan Kilburn's prints are sold widely in the area and on Monhegan. We had seen and like them so decided to stop by her studio on the way to Pemaquid lighthouse. She was there--very nice and welcoming and we enjoyed seeing both her original watercolors and prints. Of course, we had to buy some!

Consenses

Consenses' exhibit is an all ages artistic journey through the senses allowing visitors to touch, smell, taste, watch, listen and interact with art using each piece as a lens through which to perceive the inner world of the artists. The Exhibit, a mere 1 minute walk from the Vineyard Haven Ferry, is a series of 6 rotating sets. Each began its life as a photograph which was then given to a musician to interpret and translate into a song, their song was interpreted by a dancer, their dance was interpreted by a poet, their poem by a painter, the painting by a perfumer, the perfume by a sculptor and the subsequent 7 piece collection by a set designer. The result of experiencing Consenses is an overall feeling of "enlightenment," empathy, excitement, appreciation, understanding and peace. Visitors are encouraged to interpret the art on display for themselves and express their own perceptions using creative centers within the exhibit. Come spend an hour or a day with us discovering the nature of your own internal process. Leave with a broader understanding of yourself, others and the world around you.

Little River HotGlass Studio

Reviewed By rmslobodjian

My fiancé and I went on a whim and had an amazing time! We found this studio on a map of the Stowe area and after inquiring, found out that you can make your own pieces. Due to COVID restrictions there were some limitations, but even with the limitations there were a good amount of options. Michael was very fun to work with and made the experience that much better. He was very flexible with scheduling the time for us to come in and the session only took an hour. We did this the last day of our trip not realizing how long the pieces take to cool, and Michael arranged to have them shipped to our home. Would highly recommend to couples or a group looking for a unique experience.

Founded in 1917, the Portsmouth Historical Society is a nonprofit devoted to the history, arts, and culture of the Portsmouth region, through acquisitions, preservation, museum exhibitions, programs, and publications. It operates the Discover Portsmouth Welcome Center and the 1758 John Paul Jones Historic House Museum and Garden, a national historic landmark. The Society also serves as the home of the Portsmouth Advocates for Historic Preservation, and the Portsmouth Marine Society Press.

After visiting the Discover Portsmouth Welcome Center, I went into the attached Portsmouth Historical Society building to see the 2021 art exhibits. The one on the first floor was titled: Twilight of American Impressionism. The featured artists were Alice Ruggles Sohier and Frederick A. Bosley. Alice Ruggles Sohier was born in Massachusetts. She had an extensive education in art. Among her instructors for advanced studies at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston were Edmund C. Tarbell and Frank Weston Benson. I liked most of her work shown in the exhibit. The oil painting titled Dahlias was my favorite. The yellow dahlias looked so delicate. I also liked the painting titled Yellow Day Lilies. Frederick A. Bosley was from Lebanon, New Hampshire. He also studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts with Edmund C. Tarbell and Frank Weston Benson. Works in this exhibit included portraits and landscapes. Most of his palette was in subdued darker shades, except for the portrait of a woman in a red kimono titled “Elizabeth in Red” which I liked. Bosley's palette was on display in a case. The exhibit upstairs was titled: Don Gorvett: Working Waterfronts. He is a contemporary artist. He does woodcuts and then makes colorized prints from them. The waterfronts were mostly Portsmouth and Ogunquit. There was also a video in which Don Gorvett demonstrated how he does the woodcuts and made his prints. He combines the traditional process with a few procedures he created. I found both exhibits worthwhile. I really liked the Impressionist exhibit. I always find every exhibit that the Portsmouth Historical Society displays to be first-rate. I rate the Portsmouth Historical Society, its John Paul Jones House, its tours, its publications, and these exhibits at 5.0. I highly recommend anything the Society does.
