It has been said by many a visitor to the Moosehead lake area, that the Lodge at Moosehead Lake has one of the most beautiful and panoramic views. “We want to share this view, but as a private retreat, it is not open for public viewing. Therefore the next best is to capture it in a way that allows others to know the beauty this area has to offer.” explained Linda Bortis, owner of the Lodge. Four hand-selected and accomplished artists, all with a true love for Maine and its ever changing landscapes are coming to the Lodge. Each artist sees the world in her or his unique way. It’s this sharing of perspective that enriches us.
- Evelyn Dunphy, West Bath, ME – The first artist to receive the Natural Resource Council of Maine’s “People’s Choice” award for her contribution to conservation in Maine, she was also the first “Visiting Artist” in Baxter State Park in 2009.
- Michael Boardman, North Yarmouth, ME – Michael works as much as possible from life and can often be found hiking or kayaking the wilds of Maine with his painting kit strapped to his back.
- Carolyn Walton, Freeport, ME -Walton creates a lovely essay of rolling terrain and undulating fields that radiate both with the affection she obviously feels for the scenery she observes and for the act of painting itself.
- Bruce MacDonald, Boothbay, ME – My goal is to figure out what is compelling about a scene in front of me, get rid of the extraneous details, and focus on the big forms, with their colors, sunlit elements, and shadows.
