‘Keller’s Outtakes’ at Carver Hill
Rockland — Carver Hill Gallery, 338 Main St., will host a trunk show-style event Friday, Oct. 18, from 5 to 7 p.m.; and Saturday, Oct. 19, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Titled "Ted Keller's Outtakes — Van Gogh didn't like Starry Night," the show and sale encompasses more than 100 paintings that local artist Ted Keller completed over the past 10 to 15 years. All pieces are unframed and protected in clear cellophane. The prices will range from $50 to $400; Keller’s work generally goes between $600 and $3,500.
Keller taught art courses for the University of Maine for 20 years. Formerly a sculptor and clay artist, he paints images that are loose, rich in color and full of life and humor. His subject matter varies, but most of the paintings are about people in interesting environments. Some scenes are representative of a real place, while others are imaginative.
Keller started out painting outside in Maine, and currently works mostly in the studio. He lived locally for more than 30 years and now is based in New Mexico, although he keeps his house in Union for vacations and painting. Keller has a BFA in Ceramics and Painting from Syracuse University and an MFA in Ceramics from the University of Montana.
Fall gallery hours at Carver Hill are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. or by appointment; call 594-7745.
