CAMDEN — Camden Falls Gallery hosts one more show this year to accommodate Camden‘s new Thursday Art Walks. The next art walk is Thursday, Oct. 10. Together, galleries in Camden open for extended hours between 5 and 7 p.m.

Entitled “Last Splash of Color," the show features works by some of the gallery's top colorists. Camden Falls is going all out with abstract to semi-abstracted, colorful creations. Leaving this lovely summer behind us, viewers can enjoy this show as a beacon and a bright shining light to follow, as we enter this season of elongated nights.

Featured in the show are an amalgamation of artists who are known for using shapes, colors, and an array of practices and techniques to create wonderful playful artwork. These artists push the boundaries of color patterns, and make joyful combinations of wild, bold and uncommon paintings. Artists include Ann Trainer Domingue, Jan McElhinny, Jennifer Van Cor, Aline Ordman, Susan Graeber, Janis Sanders and Ryan Kohler.

These featured artists are known for their vibrant use of juxtaposing colors in contemporary styles. Rooted in, and inspired by, their natural environment, these artists take to their own courses and colorful journeys. They create lively, vibrant, abstracted, and sometimes comical interpretations of what they see. They are moved by their subjects to record their muses on canvas. If you’re feeling weary about the longer nights and the darkness that befalls this season, stop by for a boost, as the gallery has cranked up the color notch to get you over the hump and into the next season.

As part of a larger strategy to establish Camden as a strong presence in the Maine art-scene, Camden Falls Gallery is proud to join forces with long time friends and neighbors at the Small Wonder Gallery, the Page Gallery, Carver Hill Gallery, Iron Bound, and DAAC Designs. Begin the art walk experience at the public landing where Camden Falls and Small Wonder are located. Continue your journey with a stroll up to Bay View Street, where you’ll find Page, Carver Hill, and DAAC Designs galleries.

It has been a long time since I saw a painting I liked as much as that one! Wow. Gave me chills.
