THE LITTORAL ZONE
Lorwen (Connie ) Nagle
Throughout the month of August, Kennedy Gallery will present The Littoral Zone, a series of plein air oil paintings by local artist Lorwen “Connie” Nagle. Included in this exhibit are paintings of the coastal shoreline, estuaries and wetlands surrounding the Piscataqua River, Portsmouth , and the Atlantic Ocean.
An artist as well as a psychologist, Lorwen focuses on the interplay of the seen and the unseen within the tidal areas, drawing parallels in her art between that dynamic and the constant interaction between our conscious and unconscious self. “We are , like the shoreline, moment by moment remaking ourselves.”
Please join us for an Opening Reception on Friday, August 2, from 5-8 pm in conjunction with the monthly Art Round Town Gallery Walk.

Plein Air Landscapes - Telling the Difference Between Good and Bad Compositions
Lorwen Paintings Gallery at the Kittery Community Center from 12-3 pm.
Sunday, June 7th, 2015, we will have another free art event at Lorwen Paintings Gallery at the Kittery Community Center from 12-3 pm.
This week Lorwen Nagle will discuss outdoor compositions and learning to see. She will begin by examining some of her en plein air landscapes for good/bad compositional elements. Then, she will show participants how to get started painting a picture outdoors; the use of the “rule of thirds”, the golden mean and other ways to divide the canvas in relation to the natural outdoor scene. If you have an outdoor composition that you would like critiqued, please bring it along to be viewed and discussed. Join us for another great time at Lorwen Paintings Gallery!

Join Us For Our Free 2015 Summer Art Demonstrations and Classes
On May 31, 2015, we will be kicking off our weekly summer series of demonstrations, talks and classes with master landscape artist David P. Curtis. It’s such a treat to have David begin our series of events, which will all be geared to exploring, experiencing and appreciating how art enriches our lives.
David Curtis has been teaching plein air painting classes on Cape Ann and all over New England, since 1993. His demonstration this Sunday, May 31st, on outdoor painting will help attendees understand the effect of lighting and values on the quality of a landscape painting.
Curtis, with whom I have studied is a master at showing painters how to see, which is especially important for outdoor painters. According to Curtis, ”The study of light and shade – in order to paint an impression of the visual world – began in the 15th-century with Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) and his theories have provided the scientific foundation for understanding natural vision ever since.” You can view David’s paintings at his website.
If you have been curious about how a plein air painter views life and translates that experience on canvas, you don’t want to miss this event. Also, seasoned painters may pick up a few tips that they can use to enhance their paintings.
Throughout the summer we will have demonstrations from other talented plein air painters in the New England area plus “come meet the artist” events. We also will be inviting known curators from the Boston area to talk about the history of American Impressionism. Additionally, we will have a childrens art sessions.
The summer series, will begin May 31, 2015 and occur on Sundays from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm until September 20, 2015. Please note due to previous scheduling the gallery will be closed June 14, 2015 and June 21, 2015.
Lorwen Paintings Gallery is located in the Kittery Community Center, East Wing, Rm A103. Click here for a map and to get directions. We look forward to seeing you!

Holiday Open Studio
Kittery, ME, United States
On Display A Study of Clouds and Other Works
In New England there is a saying, “if you don’t like the weather, wait awhile, it will change!” And, that is so true. As an en plein air landscape painter I am out in the weather all day. In a day, I may experience stormy cloud accumulation at mid morning and bright sunshine in the afternoon. This past summer I became fascinated with the cloud patterns, growing storms over the marshlands and light and shadows that the clouds reflected on the land. Cloud patterns and shadows became a serious study for me and at the close of this year I am struck by the number of paintings of clouds. It’s an endless fascination to me.
If you are in the vicinity of Lorwen Paintings Gallery in Kittery, Maine stop by the gallery this weekend. I’ve had a very productive year painting and have enjoyed incorporating some new techniques. Plus, I will have several paintings marked for clearance. Click here for to get directions.
