Camden — Camden Falls Gallery welcomes New Hampshire artist Ann Trainor Domingue into the gallery with its opening show of the year, “Season's Transition.” It runs through Thursday, May 22, at the downtown gallery, 5 Public Landing.

“We are very pleased to be Ann’s primary gallery in Maine,” said gallery owner Howard Gallagher. “She has such an incredible variety of styles, influences and subjects, and I think there’s really something for everyone in this collection.”

The pieces now hanging in the gallery focus on the shift from cold, stark winters into the light and warm shades of spring, with a peek at coming summer. Many of Domingue’s new works contain glimpses of warm-toned underpaintings that complement and add visual depth to the layered cool pigments on the surface. Her body of work is a rare combination of the purely decorative and personally symbolic.

After a career in advertising, Domingue realized her penchant for disorder did not mesh well with the “corporate art” world. So she left her office for the outdoors to pursue more creative passions. The skills she honed in her previous life have served her well in her new one. The basic element of graphic design is evident in each of her pieces, which range from crisp forest scenes to abstract working harbor landscapes.

Domingue's award-winning work has been featured in the Currier Museum of Art, the New Hampshire Museum of Art and in New England Watercolor Society regional and national exhibitions. She is a member of the prestigious Copley Society of Art in Boston.

“Season’s Transition” also offers fine art by nearly 40 artists from around the region. Gallery hours are Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, contact the gallery at 470-7027 or info@camdenfallsgallery.com.
