Carol Sloane Art Exhibit

July 20th, 2021 by

Currently featuring MidCoast painter Carol Sloane’s natural vistas of coastlines, islands and woodlands.

On view are 29 works in the exhibit at Bartlett Woods Retirement Community. Each year the nonprofit residential apartment house, located at 20 Bartlett Drive, just off Talbot Avenue in Rockland, hosts exhibitions of diverse works of art by local talent. Curated by Pam Cabanas, the current show features evocative scenes masterfully rendered in oil paint and oil sticks on 140 lb watercolor paper, panel and canvas.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, tours of the show are currently limited to virtual viewing via this link: Watch on YouTube

“I paint to evoke the passage of time, the movement of light, the joys and insights of the shifting relationships of the spaces that I see. My studies of the world around me began as quite literal landscapes, but as I have developed my conceptual techniques, I have expanded my horizons to wider range of subject matter.”

Titles like Matinicus Seascape, Gull Cove Study, Monhegan Morning Light, and Sprague Road Uphill are suggestive of the quiet places and spaces that Carol seeks to capture. Stand-alone works, as well as multi-part series, allow for her personal interpretation of our iconic Maine coast scenery.

At carolsloanemaine.com, one learns of her extensive exhibition history in one-person and group shows, from the Maine Jewish Museum and the Portland Museum, to Bowdoin College and Rockland’s own CMCA, Yvette Torres and Jonathan Frost Galleries.

All works are for sale. Prices available upon request.
