Storybook scenes of Maine’s beloved coast form the subjects of Kevin Beers’ paintings in a current exhibition.
Bold, clean forms and powerful saturation of hue characterize well the beautiful landscapes of Kevin Beers at Gleason Fine Art in Boothbay Harbor, Maine.  Beers does an exceptional job at capturing the simplicity and slow pace of life along Maine’s coast in his pictures.  In addition to scenes such as “Red Lobster Boat” and “Lighthouse with Bell,” which could embellish any collector’s summer home, Beers has included a dazzling array of winter scenes, showing viewers Maine’s magnificence on both sides of the coin.  The bite of winter’s cold comes through vividly in “Afternoon Light,” but, as its title may imply, one finds warmth in the subtle orange that cascades over the side of a centrally located building.
