Kigel’s ‘Asian Views’ at the Brick House

Jul 30, 2014
“Bouquet in Pewter” is a watercolor by Waldoboro artist Jean Kigel.

Waldoboro — Jean Kigel’s 16th annual “Eastern Views” exhibition of watercolors and Asian brush works will run Friday through Sunday, Aug. 8 through 10, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily at the Brick House Gallery, 176 Winslow Mills Road/Route 32. On Friday, the public is invited to celebrate this new venue from 5 to 7 p.m. with art, light refreshments and good conversation.

This year’s exhibit includes a variety of media both large and small. There are watercolors of chickens on synthetic kozo, Asian brush paintings of rhododendron on shuen paper, acrylics of seacoast Maine on canvas, gyotaku fish prints on Japanese paper and, for the first time, small one-a-day oils on panel.

Kigel loves the observable world and the vagaries of nature; much of her work can be seen as a local document of time and place.  However, her northern lights series reflects both Chinese landscape painting and the Color Field idiom. Her Kigel’s work has been exhibited in Manhattan, and her paintings sought by collectors throughout the country.

For more information, call 975-3262 and visit jeankigel.com. Those unable to make these show dates are invited to call 832-5152 to arrange a personal tour.
