Tidemark Gallery has announced that gallery member/artist Emy Kanewske of Waldoboro is featured in the December/January issue of The Palette Magazine. This is the second time the artist has been featured in the nationally-recognized art publication.

The article describes Kanewske’s creative process as not being in a hurry to finish a painting. The article, titled “The Tortoises,” showcases several artists who take time to develop their ideas rather than forcing the completion of a particular work. In the article, Kanewske said that her painting process is trying not to anticipate what the finished painting will look like when it is done.

“After working on a piece for a while, I shift to another. Thinking breaks are the rule … the break can be hours, days or months. Earlier on, I put the stuck paintings into the trash, now they are saved for later,” she said.

Borrowing a quote from her contemporary Paul Gardner, an Abstract Expressionist from Scotland, Kanewske said she believes that “a painting is never finished, it simply stops in interesting places.”

The Tidemark Gallery also features work by artists Audrey Bechler, John Blamey, Ralph Bush, Pam Cabanas, Joe and Mary Devenney, Albert M. Eames, Jr., Ardy Greatorex, Holly-Marie Haining, Gregory Holmes, JoEl Pottery, Ronald Hovey, Ann Makuck, Anne Wooster Metcalfe, Ralph Moxcey, Lavendier Myers, Louise Price, Kariska Puchalski, Wayne Robbins, Patience Sampson, Joyce Eames Steel and Carol Wiley.

Tidemark’s February show is “Ralph Bush and Daniel Corey Paint Monhegan,” which runs through Feb. 27. The gallery is located at 902 Main St./Route 220 and is open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and by appointment.
