Gardiner, Maine --In February Monkitree Gallery, 263 Water Street in Gardiner will present an exhibition featuring Jim and Fran Townsend, a husband-wife team of photographers/artists from Richmond, Maine. The show represents the point where their passions converge and diverge. As a husband and wife, they share life, but see it through their own artistic filter and bring to you, the viewer their individual interpretation of the world around them.
Fran Townsend, teacher and artist, works primarily in pastels, choosing local scenery for inspiration. She grew up in Vermont, where living, working and playing were inherently connected to the weather, the seasons, the land and the life cycles of plants and animals. Her paintings reflect the subtle colors, shifting light and varied textures in nature.
Jim has been a life-long landscaper, stone mason, musician and photographer. His range of work encompasses his belief that newer genres of photography require different styles and perspectives, and that the art of creative photography is enhanced by the availability of modern digital cameras, filters and processes. HDR photography is Jim’s newest interest, turning traditional imagery into modern works of art.
The public is invited to meet the artists at an opening reception on Friday, February 1 from 5:30-9pm.
This show can be seen through March 30, 2013.
