Abstracts and Realism at the Art Loft

When it comes to art, which do you love? Abstracts or realism?

Opinion seems to be split right down the middle, so that’s what we’ve done. Split the Art Loft right down the middle with a two person show featuring Chuck Paine and Paula Apro.

Chuck Paine is both a yacht  builder and accomplished artist, proficient in oil and watercolor. You can see a love of both professions in his artwork. A passion for all that is Maine, especially the sea, is clearly evident. Students at the Art Loft benefit greatly from the traditional art instruction he offers. It is such a pleasure to have Chuck as part of our instructor team. We are so pleased to be offering his work at the Festival of Lights Art Walk opening on November 25th, from 2-8, Black Friday. Small pen and ink drawings, as well as large oil paintings, will be available to purchase.

Chuck will be on hand to explain his process. Please feel free to stop by and talk shop with him.

Paula Apro is an artist and photographer as well as a  web designer. She is a co-founder of the Art Loft. Paula’s photography workshops are well known in Maine and have a loyal following. She has a passion for abstracts and has developed a process by which she manipulates her camera settings and creates motion in her work. The result is an amazing image beautifully printed and perfect for any home. You simply must experience her photography in person, truly inspiring!

Stop by and say hi to Paula Friday, she will be happy to share her story with you!
