• Art in the Time of Covid, Part 2

    Virtual show on the Points of View Artists' website
    Group show

    Points of View Artists offer a look at art reflecting reality in this strange time of social distancing and the coronavirus.  Each artist brings a different perspective to their experience – some humorous, some whimsical, some soberly reflective.

    This virtual show is presented as 4 “events”.  Comments related to the artists’ work appear in the event with their works.  Many of the works are for sale.  Contact us for information.  (Note:  NFS = Not For Sale;  POR = Price on Request)

    We hope to return to live shows later this spring or summer.  We have planned a full season of art and will continue with virtual shows until we are released from isolation.

    May/June:    Fresh Focus (group show);   Garden Flags (Nancy Marstaller)

    July:    Finding Form (Jackie Melissas and Ed McCartan);   Back in Time (Barbara Bean)

    August:     New Directions (Carolyn Judson and guests Cathy Bloom, Betsy Fear, Nan Moran, Harold Roberts);  

                        Color Works (Alan Mast, Ann Slocum)

    September:   Uncommon Ground (group show);    Exploring Maine (Barbara and Craig Snapp)

    Meanwhile, we hope you enjoy this virtual show.  And … stay safe, stay well!

    Artists' Comments

    Each Points of View artist has responded to this remarkable time in a different way.  The brief descriptions below relate to the work of the artists shown below.  The notes will give you a feel for the inspiration that has guided them.  

    Carolyn Judson:  Carolyn moves easily from two-dimensional paintings to three-dimensional sculpture.  Two restful paintings lead to a whimsical reminder of times gone by and then a voyage into the surreal.  More of her work can be seen at Markings Gallery in Bath (https://www.markingsgallery.com/clay.html).

    Alan Mast:  Alan has been exploring with the conversation between colors and shapes.  His vibrant work brings joy and brightness into an ambiguous and uncertain time, looking for pattern and meaning in a newly chaotic world.

    Craig Snapp:  Craig uses his camera to find Covid times reflected in nature.  His images take us from apprehension to resignation to despair to whimsical hope.  This, too, shall pass.
