Union of Maine Visible Artists – UMVA Midcoast Presents Invitational Exhibit in Blue Hill

BLUE HILL — “4 x 6” is the title of the exhibit that includes 4 items of labor by six artists chosen by Janelle Delicata opening Nov. 1 on the Blue Hill Public Library, 5 Parker Level Highway. The artists are Kelly Desrosiers (Unity), Janelle Delicata (Blue Hill), Jane Gilbert (Orland), Elisabeth Goodridge (Appleton), Marjorie Strauss (Rockland) and Deb Vendetti (Hope). The present runs from Nov. 1-30.   Library hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 9 a.m. to six p.m., Thursday 9 a.m. to eight p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. to five p.m. For extra data contact the Blue Hill Public Library at 207-374-5515 or Janelle Delicata at 207-944-8822.

Watercolor and ink landscapes that discover inspiration within the pure world are the place Desrosiers’ artwork lies. She says, “I’ve spent a few years absorbing the experiences and data that I now try to specific via my artwork.” Her detailed and generally whimsical work are full of plant and animal imagery gleaned from her childhood and later travels and work experiences in locations similar to Wisconsin, Alaska, and Maine.

Vendetti’s graphite drawings are distilled from instances on Monhegan and different coastal areas in Maine and the Canadian Maritimes. The play of sunshine and shadow and the motion of water inform her work.
