DAMARISCOTTA/LINCOLNVILLE — River Arts presents a solo show of Lincolnville artist Christine G. Aston’s work in the River Room from Thursday, Oct. 28, to Wednesday, Nov. 17. An opening reception will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 30.

Aston said, “I would like to thank River Arts for this wonderful opportunity to display my artwork. These challenging times have given me the chance to reflect and dive back into the creative process. Refocusing energy to art after being a family caregiver for over 10 years has led me back to what I love to do—drawing in ink and painting with watercolors. Bold gesture with its immediacy helps me to create strong compositions. The mood and energy of a painting is as important as the structure. Holding a degree in painting from the Maine College of Art has served me well. My ability to draw is the underlying thread binding my work together. Collage and a variety of materials help to convey, light, color and changing movement. I hope you enjoy both the abstract and the representational imagery. I am discovering that the particular qualities of each aren’t so different after all.”

River Arts is located at 36 Elm St. and is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For inquiries, call 563-6868 or email info@riverartsme.org.
