Five local artists will show their work Friday through Sunday, July 19 through 21, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Ocean View Grange, 435 Port Clyde Road/Route 131. A reception with refreshments will be held Friday from 5 to 8 p.m.

The group has been meeting regularly for years enjoying the camaraderie of painting on location or at one of the artists' studios in case of inclement weather. The artists are Lydia Kaeyer and Pamela Fenwick of Owls Head; Betsy Johnson and Lauren Gill of St. George; and Deborah Winship of Rockland.

Fenwick, who also lives in Leonia, N.J., paints mostly plein air and has exhibited watercolors in a variety of juried group shows and one-woman shows, receiving numerous awards. Some work is currently exhibited at River Gallery Fine Art in Damariscotta.

Kaeyer, also an award-winning artist, will show realistic watercolor paintings that reflect her love of the Maine coast, working waterfront, boats, shipyards and seascapes. Her work is represented at the Samoset Resort, Art Space Gallery in Rockland and in private collections around the country.

Johnson has painted watercolors for 15 years and participated in workshops in New York and Maine. She often paints at her home on the banks of the St. George River, but will show images of another place dear to her heart — France.

Gill, also of Bonita Springs, Fla., and an Art Space member, works in watercolor, oils and mixed media, shifting media and subject matter as the spirit moves her. Her colorful work is in collections as far away as Germany, England and Japan.

Winship is known for her cheerful, detailed folk images of Maine country scenes and street activities. Her work has been featured on Maine Lobster Festival posters, as well as other publication covers, cards and prints.  She currently exhibits at Winship Gallery in Rockland's south end, Archipelago and Eastern Tire in Rockland.
