(Portland, ME) Richard Boyd Art Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of a solo exhibition of paintings by noted artist Jane Herbert on August 1 at 10 a.m.
A year-round resident of Damariscotta, Maine Jane’s traditional style paintings capture the picturesque landscapes and charm of her seaside village community. Her current series of paintings are a visual expression of life along the coast and reveal her observations of the beautiful but rugged coast of Maine.
The exhibit is open free of charge between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily through August 30, 2021.
About Jane Herbert
A gifted fine and commercial artist, Jane’s paintings capture the ever changing colors, life, and mood of coastal Maine. Her unstructured approach to art and life has served her well. “Instead of earning a formal education I gathered my paint brushes and toured Europe in a micro-bus, painting and learning as I went.
Through the years, I’ve been inspired by the beauty I find in nature. There is wild beauty all around in coastal villages in Maine. Paintings like, ‘Preserve’ and ‘River Glow’ are my response to the beauty of a particular place. I often drive past these scenes, catching nothing more than a flash of landscape in a break of roadside trees.
Upon reflection, I wonder if this is my work- to witness changing light, rising mist, flowers blooming, a pair of mallards feeding, - not a slower pace, but a timeless one. There is something sacred in the untamed life that endures amid the structures of progress. These paintings exhibit my respect for the ways of nature and personal affinity for tranquility and beauty, where I see it.”
Jane’s paintings are widely collected and held in numerous private and corporate collections across the United States.
