TRAC WELCOMES YOU
TRAC'S 1ST ART SHOW
DEC '18/JAN '19
Polonski is a self-described “Colorist” endeavoring to produce works that delight viewer’s senses through unique arrangements of color, texture and composition.
"Oil pastels are probably my favor-ite medium because I like to paint with my fingers and the lipstick-like properties are so fun to work with. Smearing and blending and scraping all comes very intuitively to me. Regardless of the medium, my paintings tend to be loosely realistic, with explorations into the abstract qualities of both the subject and the background, along with the deeper and more metaphysical aspects of spirit and emotion."
Being inspired by Maine's beauty, Sue decided it was time to follow in her mother’s footsteps and try her hand at painting...
"I get immersed in the moment. If you meet me, and my sentences fade off strangely, it's because I've become distracted by the way the light is sparkling in your earrings or the richness of the color of your shirt. I hope you just laugh, because I'm laughing at myself, too. Being a painter is a joyful thing, and hopefully a sense of that is what you see when you look at my paintings."
Will is happiest when learning, whether it’s reading a new book, trying a new recipe, meeting a new person, visiting a new place or capturing the moment with his camera. He is at his best when he is moving and outside, preferably among mountains and trees.
Brendan Leitch does art for his own inner peace and also loves to create and spread beauty in any way possible.
TRAC'S 2ND ART SHOW
Marian calls her creations Weathervane Quilts, signifying both New England imagery and—as her techniques vary so widely—that the final design might come from any direction. She works in many different fabric styles and varies between traditional piecing, paper piecing and applique.
ELIZABETH OEHLKERS WRIGHT
When taking pictures, Elizabeth concentrates on the inside and/or outside to within a few feet of her home, wherever she may be living, enjoying the inner silence of visual perception.
"I started out mainly painting pictures of my children, then moved on to ocean and mountains, and snow scenes. I like to use light and reﬂections in my paintings. I like to paint the things in my life that I love."
The words of the artist: “Even though I am known as a sculptor, I consider myself an 'organic' painter, choosing color by emotion and form from color. Early in my career I became intrigued by the color reproduction process. This led in turn to my involvement with 'space weaving' and computer graphics. My work has come full circle and one step up as I now weave masses of color in space.”
As a wood worker, Kevin is self-taught. His designs are inspired by the beauty and character of the wood he works with. Every piece marries traditional hand-crafted skill with clean, sculptured lines that will bring unique style to your home.
TRAC'S 7TH SHOW
I could on the other hand rhapsodize about how the paper (cold press, hot press, rough, BFK rives) responds to the ink, the water, the paint, about expensive brushes when one can afford them and fine pen nibs when one can find them.
