A special artistic treat awaits visitors to Haynes Galleries in Thomaston, Maine, later this month. How do demonstrations, manicured gardens, a new landscape book, and superb paintings sound?
Anyone with a passion for outstanding landscape and a magnetic personality behind it should book Haynes Galleries in their calendars this month. Plein air painter and landscape master Roger Dale Brown returns to Haynes’ walls on August 19 through September 24, but that’s just the beginning. In conjunction with another solo exhibition by the lovely Zoey Frank, Brown will present a number of new works, both large and small, produced during recent travels around the country.

Both exhibitions will open on August 19 with a free reception from 5-7:30 P.M. In addition, from 3-5 P.M. Brown will share his passion for painting during an exclusive painting demonstration among the groomed gardens of Haynes Galleries. “Brown will narrate as he works so guests will experience his passion for painting first hand,” the gallery reports. “He will discuss his travels and painting trips as well as how he picks his scenes, what makes for an interesting and engaging composition, and his painting process.”
The exhibition was inspired in part by the recent release of Brown’s new book under the same title: “A Passion for Painting.” On August 20, Brown will also be available to sign books and field questions about his journey. “‘Roger Dale Brown: A Passion for Painting’ is a chance to see iconic vistas and unfamiliar scenery captured on canvas delicately and with care” the gallery continues. “But it is also a chance to experience the beauty of the landscape as Brown sees it, through the eyes of one of the premier plein air artists working today.”
