Maine Art Gallery Jury Members Exhibit Opens June 4 – MAINE ART SCENE MAGAZINE


(Wiscasset, ME) Over 160 artists responded to a call for entries for the upcoming Members’ Lounge at the Maine Art Gallery in Wiscasset. From this mix of emerging and accomplished artists, swore Sam Cady chose 62 strong finalists, each of whom will exhibit up to three pieces in the show, which runs from June 4 to June 25.

There will be a reception for the show on June 4 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The public is invited to appreciate the art accompanied by the music of the singer-songwriter Jud Caswell.

“The thrill of looking through a large group of artwork by many people is in the surprises and revelations of visions and skills that might appear in the next image,” said Cady, a best-known artist for his fashioned canvases and whose work has been widely exhibited across the world in galleries, museums and corporate collections.

“There was a lot of fun like that in this group,” he continued. “When one has absorbed thousands of images over a lifetime of viewing, one is always in search of freshness, individuality, richness, depth and uniqueness. The artist can be completely self-taught or have had advanced training, but there must be a genuine connection to his subject, his style and his materials.In this exhibition, I found the range to be wide, with beautiful abstraction, a strong sense of materials and delightful or striking representations with many atmospheres and ideas.

The final selections for this exhibition include paintings, sculptures, textiles, prints and photographs. The visitor will find a mix of talented artists with images ranging from typical Maine subject matter to more personal explorations of a theme or idea.
