The current exhibit at Bartlett Woods was installed in the autumn of 2019 thanks to our long-time curator Pam Cabanas. (Pam’s work is above the fireplace and above our bulletin board in the hallway).
Rockland artist Carol Sloane was born in New York City and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Fine Arts from Skidmore College in 1967. In the 1990s, she was a student at the Art Students League of New York.
Carol moved to Maine in 1972, first living in Montville, and then in Washington where she resided for 45 years. Five years ago, she moved to Rockland.
Carol has held artist residencies on Monhegan Island, in Vermont, New Mexico and Ireland. She has exhibited her work widely in Maine. Carol also has a show currently at the Gibbs Library in Washington, featuring her early oil paintings.
Carol has said the following about her work:
“I see myself as a tracker of the effects of time and space. I want to create the sensation of Earthly movement, to make my flat surface come alive with the buzz of this energy.
When I settle myself in a landscape to document its details, the sun moves in the sky, the tide rises or sinks, and the composition of my initial vision takes on a life of its own, full of surprises and unforeseen complexities, bearing witness to universal forces.”
Carol’s exhibit will remain on view through the end of December 2022. We are most grateful to Carol for this very special long-term loan of her works to Bartlett Woods.
