Looking curiously at the world around us inevitably sparks interconnection.  In Walker Fine Art’s upcoming exhibition, six artists consider cognitive and emotional connections to their surroundings to create spontaneous interpretations of the natural world.  Inspiration is found through pause and presence in their encompassing landscapes.  Through independent journeys in mark-making, gestural painting, and sculptural construction, these creators find a COMMON GROUND through contemplation and appreciation of their environments.

As a child growing up in the country, some of ELAINE COOMBS’ happiest memories are laying in the grass under a tree in mid-summer, looking up at the sky, the sound of leaves rustling in the breeze.  On a summer visit to Denver, Coombs carried out just that same activity from childhood.  In her studio, she strives to create paintings with a bright, light-filled palette and an optimistic tone, with hopes that she might evoke similar positive feelings in the viewer.


Featured artists:  Cara Enteles, Mona Ray, Theresa Ducayet, Carol Browning, Elaine Coombs, Derrick Breidenthal.

"Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall." 
-F. Scott Fitzgerald
 
Falling, a group show, looks at the dichotomy of fall as both a time of beginnings and endings.  Inspired by the fall foliage Maine is known for, the exhibtion looks to how we relate to blooming colors of the fall and their dissapearance.  Fall represents the end of a period of growth and marks the transition into the cold days of winter.  Yet it also fills us with joy and hope in the knowledge that there is beauty even in loss.
