Maine: The Painted State
An invitational exhibit, all about Maine!
April 4 – 27

Maine has been an artist magnet for over 100 years. The allure of its rugged coastline and the romance of the sea, its lakes and islands, its wild beauty and isolation and, of course, the distinctive qualities of its northern light have captivated generations of painters. Our landscape has been celebrated — mythologized, really — in classic works by some of the greatest painters in American Art History from Thomas Cole to Frederick Church to Winslow Homer to Andrew Wyeth, Marsden Hartley, Neil Welliver, and beyond.

But the magic of Maine’s landscape is not a finite quantity, confined to a specific period. It is, in fact, eternal and Maine remains a vital locus of artistic inspiration, coursing with creative energy. Our April exhibition, “Maine, the Painted State,” is both a proud nod to Maine’s storied and outsized place in American Art History, and a celebration of the exciting ways the landscape tradition continues. How it is being carried on — and in some cases, reinvented — by contemporary Maine artists.

In curating this exhibition, we asked 50 of Maine’s best artists to get personal – to show us the places in Maine that are the most meaningful to them. The most memorable places — the ones that keep calling them back, again and again. We are thrilled with the work we received – work grounded in a sense of place, but occupying a liminal space where the personal intersects with the universal.

In our 41st year and dedicated to showing the finest art made by Maine’s bestartists, Greenhut Galleries is pleased to host this celebration of our majestic state, and its amazing artists. Join us!
