HINCKLEY — Meet the artists at the artist’s reception for the L.C.Bates Museum’s summer exhibition Maine Northern Skies: Clear Light is set for 2-4 p.m. Sunday, June 29. Many of the exhibition artists will be on hand to answer questions about their work. The exhibition includes 23 Maine artists who created their interpretation of light on the Maine landscape and in our skies. The reception is free and there will be refreshments. An art activity for children young and old will be presented. The exhibition, running through Oct. 15, includes Maine artists.

The 23 exhibition artists include Stephen Burt, Barbara Sullivan, Janice Anthony, Chris Augusta and Veronica Cross. Artists’ statements and labels express their connection to the Maine environment and air. Janice Anthony writes of her work, “My paintings lies beyond the visible features of woods, rocks, and water. My intention is to convey the sense of a place: the moving air, the solidity of rock and the transience of water and the strength of the ground beneath.” Chris Augusta noted “the importance of working directly from nature and that drawing and painting are a means to understanding how nature works and how we human beings see the world.” While artist Veronica Cross says her work “investigate time, place, and memory, using imagery culled from the panoramas of Maine.” At the reception you can talk with the artists as you view their wonderful depictions of our Maine Skies.
