Gallery222 Malvern recently announced “The Maine Event,” highlighting all aspects of the scenic state of Maine. The show opens on February 19 and runs through March 14, with the public artist reception on Thursday, February 20 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
From the gallery:
While the Gallery is ecstatic to highlight the beauty of Maine, that’s not the only reason why this show is special. We’re also proud to announce that the “The Maine Event” is an ALL woman show at a gallery owned by a woman. We’ve assembled an all-star cast of seven female artists.
Malvern resident and owner of Gallery222 Malvern, Andrea Strang is thrilled to bring these award-winning plein air artists together in “The Maine Event.” “If 2020 hasn’t been declared the year of the woman in the art world yet, I guess Gallery222 Malvern is doing it now. As a female gallery owner, I don’t think I can be prouder than to have these seven talented ladies showing with us and with such an amazing and beautiful theme. We just can’t wait.”
“One of the wonderful things about painting en plein air has been the chance to develop friendships and travel with other painters” says participating artist Elaine Lisle. “Most of us have painted together for many years, either in plein air competitions or on painting trips, locally and even in Europe.”
The artists participating are Elaine Lisle, Jacalyn Beam, Elise Phillips, Valerie Craig, Nancy Bea Miller, Eliza Auth, and Alexandra Tyng.
“The Maine Event” will predominantly feature plein air paintings. All art will be available for purchase in the gallery as well in Gallery222 Malvern’s online shop once the show opens. Visit www.gallery222malvern.com for more information.
