Plein air times four in Tenants Harbor

May 29, 2018
Edward Buonvecchio is one of four Maine plein air artists filling the walls of Jackson Memorial Library in Tenants Harbor.

Tenants Harbor — “Inspirations-4 Paint Maine” is the name of the new group show of work by Maine artists Kathryn Baribeau, Edward Buonvecchio, Fran Scannell and Suzanne deLesseps. More than 60 of their paintings will grace the walls of Jackson Memorial Library, 71 Main St./Route 131 beginning Wednesday, May 30, and continuing through June.

Baribeau is a plein air painter who works primarily in watercolor. Maine, and the islands of Casco Bay, are her favorite places to paint. She has exhibited her work around the state; and is a past president of the Casco Bay Art League.

Buonvecchio is both an artist and an avid outdoorsman for whom plein air painting has been an extension of his love for nature and a way to study it. In 2012, he moved to Maine and now travels the state to paint its distinctively different seasons.

Paints her home territory of coastal Maine with both oil and pastel, deLesseps has received many awards in national juried exhibitions throughout the United States.

Scannel, a resident of the Boothbay region, works in oil, watercolor and acrylic. Her life-long interest in art was revived through courses at the Booth Bay Region Art Foundation and with the Plein Air Painters of Maine.
