'Monhegan' at the Ocean House
Port Clyde — Ocean House Gallery at Ocean House Hotel, overlooking the harbor, welcomes back artist Susan Gilbert with an exhibition that runs through July 11. The public is invited to an opening reception Thursday, June 28 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. in the dining room.
Gilbert, a native of Schenectady, N.Y., had been coming to Monhegan Island since the late 1960s and has been a year-round resident for more than a decade. A graduate of the Boston Museum School, Gilbert received a year of classical art training followed by three years of intensive drawing and ceramics. During that time and in the years since she has pursued the study of painting on porcelain, paper and canvas, nurturing a lifetime of interest in the media of oxide on clay, watercolor on paper and oil on canvas. Her exhibition, "A Year on Monhegan Island," is a mix of watercolors and oils of island life.
Gilbert has studied under Copley Masters artist Don Stone, Ralph Bush and Bill Maloney; Dewitt Hardy and Guy Corriero for watercolor; oils with Janet Manyan; and drawing with Anthony Venti. She taught ceramics for many years at Tufts University, Chamberlayne Junior College and Cambridge Community Center.
Also on view is work by Maine artists including Leo Brooks, Angela Anderson, Sylvia Murdock and more. Gallery hours are daily from 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. For information about exhibitions and gallery space, contact Kristina Mitchell 372-6691 or email@example.com. From July 13 through Aug. 1, the gallery will feature Pam Cabanas of Friendship.
