The Maine Art Gallery will host “Drawn to Maine: Contemporary Drawing and Printmaking” from June 13 through July 21, on the second floor of the gallery located at 15 Warren St. in Wiscasset. The first floor will feature works by artists who have been involved in MAG’s plein air event, Paint it! Wiscasset.

Artists participating in the plein air event began painting on June 5, making their art at locations throughout Lincoln County, including at least one day within the village of Wiscasset.

“Drawn to Maine,” on the second floor, is a juried show that includes drawings (ink, graphite, charcoal, watercolor and pastels) and printmaking (mono prints, etchings, linocuts, collographs, screen prints, plus exciting combinations of multiple techniques). Several two-and three-dimensional pieces as well as a selection of artist-made books also will be on display.

The opening reception for the shows is set for 5-7 p.m. Saturday, June 15, with music by Jud Caswell; refreshments will be served.

Four of the artists in the drawing and printmaking show will discuss their inspirations, purpose, and methods in an Artist Talk “The Printmaking Experience” at 6:30 p.m. on June 27.

Also in June, Deena Ball leads three options for classes in plein air painting on June 20. Visit maineartgallerywiscasset.org to sign up by June 13.
