'Cottage and Architecture' returns
Camden — "Maine Cottage and Architecture: Featuring the Work of Janis Sanders" will open with a public reception for the Massachusetts artist Saturday, Aug. 4 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Camden Falls Gallery, 5 Public Landing. The show will run through Thursday, Aug. 16.
His subject matter is often island light, salt marshes, cottages and granite ledge, but Sanders’ treatment of these common themes is anything but prosaic. With a painterly impasto technique, he vigorously wields his palette knife to apply planes of brilliant color that seem to infuse his paintings with light. His love of island and coastal light sends him back repeatedly to the outer Cape, the North Shore, Nantucket and the coast of Maine. In coming months, the award-winning Sanders will be featured in the soon-to-be published books "Best of America: Landscape Artists, Vol. II" and "American Art Collector."
Camden Falls Gallery is open daily from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, call 470-7027.
