The Eastport Arts Center’s Washington Street Gallery will present an open show of community works, ‘Inspired by Luminists’, from September 6-27. An opening reception will be offered on Saturday, September 9, 2-4 pm.
THE GALLERY IS OPEN during EAC events or by chance or appointment; inquiries about the show may be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Luminism was a 19th century art movement characterized by a treatment of light emphasizing a luminous, uniform glow. The movement’s influence can be seen to this day in the culture of landscape painting that still exists, especially in Maine. Its practitioners often emphasize the quiet beauty of closely observed natural scenes.
Eastport Arts Center is at 36 Washington Street, Eastport, and at www.eastportartscenter.org, and is handicapped-accessible. EAC abides by the State of Maine CDC COVID guidelines, revisiting our policy monthly. At this time, the use of masks in our building is optional.
The painting pictured is by Jude Kempe, and is part of the exhibition.
