Faragher’s ‘Sea Level’ at Landing

Jun 01, 2014
“August light, view to Spruce Island and the mainland, from Islesboro, Maine” is an oil on linen by Sarah Faragher.

Rockland — Landing Gallery, 8 Elm St., will open “Sea Level,” a solo exhibition of new paintings by Sarah Faragher, with a First Friday Art Walk artist’s reception June 6 from 5 to 8 p.m.

Faragher’s oil paintings are reminiscent of the American Realist Movement. The elements of seascape — clouds, water, rock and beach — become the most important structures in her work. Her Maine plein air paintings are defined in an objective manner, using gradations of color, a light to dark value range and closely observed natural details to develop her signature style.

“The tide line is where I most love to paint right now. That place where ocean and land meet contains such a strong combination of tumbling energy and compelling natural forms.  I’m there as a participant, as another element in nature,” she said of the work in “Sea Level.”

The show will continue through July 27. Gallery hours are Wednesdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call 594-4544 or visit LandingArt.com.
