    Ed McCartan has had two pieces accepted for the show "Celebrating Color" at River Arts in Damariscotta. Red Gesture and Ghost Flowers are both shown below.  The exhibition of  over 120 pieces of art, by 90 different Maine artists  includes paintings, sculpture and fiber arts.

    Bruce Busko, owner and director of the Landing Gallery in Rockland and an artist, was the juror for this exhibition.  His juror's statement describes the vibrancy of the show:

    "The works accepted into “Celebrating Color” all share the use of color to enhance the overall subject or design of each piece.  Color has been used in many different ways, varying from intense primaries to subtle, tonal variations. Color is an unspoken language that instantly speaks to our emotions.  Color can become the most important element in the creation of compelling art. When you come in to see the exhibit, you will feel the power and  exhilaration of colorful art.  Everyone has favorite colors and they become part of our persona. With the leaves falling and losing their color during these very short Maine days, a cornucopia of color awaits to lift your spirits."
