The Saltwater Artists Gallery, on Pemaquid Point Road in Bristol, is pleased to welcome a new oil painter, Alice de Mauriac. She lives full time in Pemaquid after spending several years living abroad in Saudi Arabia, Finland, Norway, Austria, Denmark, and Switzerland, then in Rochester, N.Y., where she continued to paint.
The primary focus of de Mauriac’s artistic endeavor is an exploration of abstraction. Her residence on the coast has inevitably led to a renewed interest in the landscape and light in Maine. De Mauriac’s unique point of view is filtered through her years of abstract painting.
De Mauriac’s gorgeous large oil paintings can be viewed at Saltwater Artists Gallery. The gallery will be open on weekends, June 2, 3, 9, and 10, before opening full time on Saturday, June 16. Its hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
