Artist’s Reception: October 6, 2017, 5-7 PM at the Lakeside Contemporary Art Gallery in the Lobby of the RFA Lakeside Theater, 2493 Main St., Rangeley. Meet the artists, enjoy complimentary appetizers and cash bar (beer/wine) during the artists' reception. The Exhibit will be on display October 5-December 1, 2017; Free and open to the public.
Marcia Baker’s energetic and vibrant watercolor paintings represent her connection with the woods and coast of Maine. Favorite outdoor pastimes, like kayaking or sailing to her favorite coastal island, are woven into stories. Sporting images of fly-fishing, skiing, hiking and bird hunting are captured from experiences with her husband and have been compared to Winslow Homer’s style. Her aspiration is “to pass on those inspiring moments to you.” She has recently expanded into oil painting and pastel media and she is known for her underwater scenes of trout and salmon. Vivid wildlife images, such as moose, ravens and wild birds, come to life on paper and canvas.
Dorothy Mosher: In addition to looking after Rangeley’s health and well-being, local Nurse Practitioner Dorothy Mosher has been developing her skills as an artist for ten years. Her love of the great outdoors was fostered by generations of family living close to the land in her native Idaho. An accomplished horsewoman, outdoor sportswoman and musician, her themes exist in nature and in the stories of the great Northwest. This is Ms. Mosher’s first public exhibition of her art work. She will perform on guitar and sing an original composition at the opening reception.
