Pinette, Epstein and Min at Caldbeck
The Caldbeck Gallery, 12 Elm St., will open a new exhibit of the work of Dennis Pinette of Belfast; Jeff Epstein of Cushing and Brooklyn, N.Y.; and K. Min of Friendship and Seoul, Korea, with a reception for the artists Wednesday, July 18, from 6 to 8 p.m.
In “Selected Works — Two Decades,” Pinette’s paintings in oil on canvas and in oil on gessoed rag paper reflect his energy and exploration of the elements as he paints his powerful images of fire, water and air, as well as the human endeavors to harness these forces of nature. The work dates from the late 1980s (his early “industrial” landscapes) to the present.
Much of Epstein’s new work focuses on Maine where, after years of coming to paint in the summer time, he is now a resident of Cushing, and has a studio he uses throughout the year. Working in oil on canvas and on panel, Epstein’s wintery landscapes juxtapose their cold, blue tones with the heat and green light of his summer paintings.
In her first solo exhibit at the Caldbeck, Min will include works in hard pastel on paper and in oil on panel. Working in very fine detail, she imparts a dreamy quality to her images of a burned blueberry field, sliced bread on a board or a collection of moths on a clean plate.
The exhibition will run through Aug. 11. Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. For more information, call the gallery at 594-5935.
