Yvette Torres Fine Art , 21 Winter St., will present “Then and Now II,” selections from Charles DuBack's early years in Maine and recent work, Friday, Aug. 2, through Sept. 1. There will be a First Friday Art Walk artist’s reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Aug. 2.

A longtime resident of Tenants Harbor, DuBack came to Maine to attend the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in the mid-1950s. He had shared a New York studio with sculptor Bernard Langlais and painter Alex Katz in the 1950s and was part of a group of New York artists who settled in Midcoast Maine as summer residents.

Throughout his career, DuBack has moved from representational work to an abstract form, though he does not identify his work as abstract. Over the years, the avid fly fisherman, developed an especially intimate knowledge of the Maine woods. With an artist’s eye for defining color and shape, he translates that visual understanding into works of art that have been featured in important shows at the Museum of Modern Art, the Brooklyn Museum and the Whitney Annual Exhibition of Contemporary American Painting, among others; and are in museum collections in Maine and throughout the country.

Gallery hours are Wednesdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. or by chance or appointment. For more information, call 332-4014 or visit yvettetorresfineart.com.
