Crotty paintings at Frost Gully

Jun 17, 2012
"Hells Half Acre to Camp" is among the oils of Thomas Crotty going on view at Frost Gully Gallery, Thomaston.

Thomaston — Frost Gully Gallery, 150 Main St./Route 1, will present a selection of paintings by Thomas Crotty from Saturday, June 23 through July 22. A reception for the artist will be held Sunday, June 24 from 4 to 6 p.m.

The paintings have been selected from the body of work completed since the artist’s one-man exhibition at the Portland Museum of Art in 2003 to 2004. Some are the result of the artist exploring the St. George area, with a focus on the St. George River and the coast around Drift In Beach and Mosquito Island. The artist and his fiancee, Rayette Hudon, have found a place on the St. George River and this allows Crotty to concentrate on the area of Maine that has long been one of his favorites.

Crotty also owns and directs Maine’s oldest gallery, Frost Gully Gallery, which opened in 1966 in Freeport. It has been a primary gallery over the years for many of Maine’s most accomplished artists including Beverly Hallam, DeWitt Hardy, George Curtis, Bernard Langlais, Dahlov Ipcar, William Kienbusch, John Heliker, Laurence Sisson, David Driskell, John Laurent, George deLyra and a long list of others.

Regular gallery hours are Tuesdays through Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Fridays and Saturdays from to 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Appointments are welcomed; contact Crotty at 749-1130 or tom@tomcrotty.com. The gallery website is frostgullygallery.com.
