Chestnut Street Lofts Gallery
21 Chestnut Street
I feel blessed to live in Maine, spending winters in Portland in a cozy loft on Chestnut Street and summers on my husband's flower farm in Sedgwick (on the Blue Hill Peninsula). Recently, in association with the Maine Farmland Trust Gallery in Belfast, I have begun making paintings inspired by my husband's self-created landscape. As a 1.5 acre cutting garden, it's a difficult subject to depict, as all flowers, shrubs, and grasses are grown for maximum suitability for cutting (i.e., tall). So I have chosen instead to focus on small moments in the life of a cut-flower operation.

Kasey Gagnon is a Maine native and 30 year old female artist who enjoys the freedom that all art brings. In her words: "From the discussions that are created from the work, to the emotions felt inside, art brings people together in so many ways - as does Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE). PPNNE creates a world where everyone is free to be themselves and be supported for their views and rights. I see this opportunity to work with PPNNE, as taking part in the community and sharing myself with others as they share themselves with me. "Everyone needs a reminder to breathe and simply know there are people who want to help, no matter their race, gender, sexual orientation, history etc. We are all being judged, as is the art. But like the art I want to let the world feel and affect the souls that let me express without judging back. I live for my right to express myself how I see fit regarding my art, my body or any aspect of my life. Everyone should feel safe enough to have that freedom. If I can assist in giving a second breath to someone who needs a moment of calm in their day, I have succeeded as the artist and person I hope to always be."

Bio: Six years of painting on glass and I'm still discovering new techniques. It's what excites me about the form. The "spin" technique is fresh, vivid, and often chaotic. Witnessing the chaos, making mistakes, and achieving control breathe new life into my discipline. Nothing beats flipping over a fresh piece and seeing it whole for the first time. It is new and immediate. This invigorates me. Each new piece informs the next. I learn to accept, reject, re-define, and develop my ideas of what art is, and what it could be. For this show, I collaborated with Kyle Randall. He provided form for my colorful explorations. I can't thank him enough, for art is nothing if not communication. website: http://getlowchild.blogspot.com

She-Bear Gallery
650 Congress Street
She-Bear Gallery’s First Friday in December will feature ink and acrylic paintings by Rebekah Raye. Fun, quirky, and imaginative, the visceral world of Rebekah’s rich soul paintings has the animal kingdom as its subject. Her animal characters are fully realized, not just in color and composition, but in sentiment. She takes time to observe, revere, and cherish the temperament and personality of each animal she meets, whether it’s one that she sees in the woods or one that emerges on her canvas. The life-force and warmth of her paintings make them practically thump like hearts. A graduate of University of Maine, Orono where she studied Art Education, Rebekah Raye has long made the state of Maine her home. In addition to painting and carving wood reliefs, she teaches art and illustrates children’s books about animals and natural science. Rebekah’s fine art has been exhibited throughout the state. Stop in She-Bear for some refreshment and to admire these wonderful works!

The Shalom House Art Program provides a safe and supportive environment where artists of all levels can freely explore and express ideas, learn new skills and discover their strengths and abilities. Those living with mental illness are often defined by their disability rather than their ability. This program focuses on the creative potential inherent in each individual. Through the experience of making, exhibiting and selling their work, individuals gain confidence, motivation and self-esteem. These creative experiences are very effective in drawing people suffering from mental illness out of isolation. Art shows aren’t passive social events, but ones that connect participants to one another, giving them the opportunity to share and value their life stories as expressed in their artwork. We utilize the Art Program as a way to address the stigma associated with mental illness. By providing our artists these opportunities to reach out and become part of the community we can provide a forum through which we can better educate the community about mental illness.

We have asked the artists we featured this fall to exhibit a little while longer to give more people the opportunity to see their work before we switch to new artists with the beginning months of 2015. Most of the school is currently vibrant with the colors in Kifah Abdulla' s work while some rooms have a more classic look adorned by Linda Green's graphite drawings and encaustic pieces or a more natural one where Missy Mans' photography of seaside objects, creatures, and landscapes are displayed. All pieces tell wonderful stories and may touch you when you least expect it. Please plan a visit! We would love to welcome you to our community and share with you the work of these three talented artists.

Breathtaking, jewel-like bird photography is on display. Publication credits include National Geographic, Audubon, Nature’s Best, National Wildlife Federation's Big Backyard, NANPA Currents, Palm Press, Woodmansterne Publications, Daily Mail, Daily Telegraph, Tourist News, and the Boston Globe. Mike's photographs have been featured in numerous exhibits throughout New England, including the prestigious Paradise City Arts Festival. Eleven of his images have been selected for the North American Nature Photography Association's annual showcases including a Top 10 image in 2012; and three of his images have been honored in the Audubon Magazine Photography Awards including a Top 3 placement in the Professional category. He has also garnered many "Image of the Week" honors on various online forums and was a finalist for Avian Image of the Year at birdphotographers.net.

Harbert uses a plastic “Diana” camera, made in the 1960’s, to capture and distort his subject matter, evoking qualities of the surreal, the solitary, and the not-­quite-­ordinary.

Abstract art is my life and my passion. As I create, I feel a celebration of life. Whether I am working on a lively, multi-colored, abstract painting or drawing on wood, or fine- tuning a collage, or piecing together one of my "found objects" sculptures, I always feel that the work comes straight from my heart. I think that the expression of oneself virtually is as important as the rest of life's needs. My artist inspiration includes Alberto Giacometti, Camille Claudel, Maria Elena Vieira Da Silva, Pablo Picasso, Robert Rauschenberg, Paul Klee, Louise Nevelson and Polly Brown.
