Matthew Russ Exhibit

The Schoolhouse Gallery is please to present an exhibit of oil paintings by plein-air artist Matthew Russ.  Opening on January 6, 2012, during the Kingfield First Friday Artwalk, the work will be on display through January 2, 2012.  Matthew, a Waterville resident, Portland native and 1996 graduate of Colby College, is known for his tranquil work depicting remote landscapes of Maine.  Accessing these locations by foot, snowshoe and boat, he always paints from life, working outdoors in all seasons.  These paintings give us all a chance to experience the emotion and sacredness of these special places Matthew has discovered in the Western Mountains of Maine.  Selected photographs by John and Cynthia Orcutt will also be on display during the month.
