Midcoast art in Augusta

Jun 30, 2013
Brian Krebs’ "Clary Hill, May," an oil on linen, is on view in Maine’s State Capitol.

Augusta — An exhibition of artwork by Maine landscape artist Brian Krebs of Warren will be on display until the end of August in Maine’s Capitol Complex as part of the Maine Arts Commission’s Arts in the Capitol program.

Krebs described himself as a realist focused on natural landscapes and water views who is especially intrigued when a two-dimensional representation of a subject can be overlaid with geometric forms.

“My work is informed by shapes, patterns and proportions that we are intuitively attracted to. I apply oil paint very deliberately and with a palette knife, embracing its limitation of marks while emphasizing perspective and light," he said.

Krebs earned a bachelor's degree from Drew University in Madison, N.J., where he studied philosophy and mathematics. His work has been exhibited throughout the Midcoast and is included in many collections locally and abroad.

All Arts in the Capitol events and free and open to the public; however, exhibitions are self-guided and may only be viewed weekdays within prescribed times: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Maine Arts Commission Office; and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Maine State House. For more information on this and all programs available through the Maine Arts Commission, visit MaineArts.com.
