Kigel’s ‘Dragon’ in Brunswick gallery
Brunswick — During September, Summer Island Studio at 149 Maine St. welcomes back watercolorist and Asian brush painter Jean Kigel of Waldoboro for a show titled “The Dragon Sleeps.” The gallery is open from Mondays through Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Summer Island Studio will be open until 8 p.m. for the city’s Friday night art walk Sept. 14.
Kigel’s signature piece depicts the Great Wall at Badaling, China, winding through the autumn mist. The vermilion and sienna hues announce the close of the summer season. Her other paintings follow the autumnal theme by depicting the American crow calling out the change of season, hummingbirds tasting the last of summer’s nectar, golden orchids fading into pools of aqua mist and the sun setting over Maine islands.
Award-winning artist Kigel specializes in watercolor and Asian brush painting. Her works have been widely exhibited in museum, university and private galleries; and have been reviewed in the Boston Globe and the Maine Sunday Telegram. For more information, call 373-1810.
