Courthouse Gallery Fine Art, 6 Court St., will host an artist’s talk for Hope painter Colin Page Wednesday, Aug. 24 at 6 p.m. as part of the gallery’s Wednesday Night Art events. Page will talk about his career and approach to painting. The event is free and open to the public.

Page’s work is highlighted through Sept. 11 in a solo exhibition, “Colin Page: Down East,” at the gallery. For this exhibition, Page spent time painting Down East, capturing local scenes on canvas of the Hancock Grocery, the Deer Isle Bridge and downtown Blue Hill and Stonington, as well as iconic view of Acadia National Park on the Schoodic peninsula and Mount Desert Island.

Page is a plein air painter who works in oils. He studied at Rhode Island School of Design and the Baltimore School for the Arts, and holds a BFA from Cooper Union. His work was featured at the Farnsworth Art Museum in 2008. Page was born in Michigan and grew up in Hope, where is still resides with his wife.
