Dewey’s ‘Pemaquid’ paintings at Pemaquid

Jul 05, 2017
“Pemaquid Point: On the Fourth” is a 2016 watercolor on paper by David Dewey.

Rockland — Caldbeck Gallery, 12 Elm St., will open an exhibit of new work in watercolor by David Dewey of Owls Head and Blairstown, N.J.; and an upstairs galleries an exhibit of selected paintings, photographs and sculpture by gallery artists with a reception for the artists Wednesday, July 12, from 6 to 8 p.m.

“The Pemaquid Light Paintings: Watercolors of an Iconic Maine Landmark 2014 – 2017” is Dewey’s most recent body of work. Since first settling in Maine many years ago, Dewey has visited both Pemaquids, the light and the place, “more times than I can count. It’s been a kind of Mecca and retreat for me, where I loved to paint small watercolors with my field kit.” Those years of returning again and again to visit and to paint have led to many significant large-scale watercolors.

Dewey’s work is in many private and public collections. He currently is working on proposed book, “The Iconic Watercolors of David Dewey 1983 – 2017.” This is his sixth solo show with the Caldbeck Gallery, where he has been represented since 2004.

Gallery artists showing on the second floor include Katherine Bradford, Alan Bray, Sam Cady, Jeff Epstein, Melanie Essex, Nancy Glassman, John Goodman, Frederic Kellogg, Kristin Malin, K. Min, Kayla Mohammadi, Dennis Pinette, Barbara Sullivan, Todd Watts, Dan West, Susan Williams and Nancy Wissemann-Widrig. The shows will run through Aug. 12.

Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. For more information, call 594-5935 or send email to caldbeck@midcoast.com.
