Recently at Harvest Gold, Rebecca Klementovich sent in some gorgeous new paintings! One of the first abstract artists to show at Harvest Gold, Klementovich seeks to introduce a new color palette and style of painting to New England that can challenge the hold that traditional schools have on the region. Her bright colors and the motion that can be seen through her strong brush strokes seek to represent the natural rhythm and vibrancy that can be seen in the mountains and trees all around us.
By painting with loud, vivid colors, along with painting and showing in outdoor locations that many people feel more comfortable in than a traditional gallery space, Klementovich seeks to capture the attention of the public and encourage other women to pursue their passions.
The first of these new paintings is "Visions of Kezar Lake" a beautiful landscape painting that shows the view of Kezar Lake in Lovell!
The second of the new paintings is known as "Moon, Plains and You", a beautiful showcase of the winter season. Leaves are on the ground, but green is beginning to peak through, with the moonlight shining above.
The final painting in this newest batch is known as "Let's Work Among the Leaves", a very vibrant and colorful painting that shows the skill Rebecca showcases in her painting. Come see these paintings and more at the gallery!
With winter coming to an end and spring on the horizon, rather than snow, rain seems to be pouring from the Maine skies this time of year! In light of the increased downpours, we would like to show some seasonal spring paintings!
"Afternoon Rain" by Kristen Dill shows the beauty of the sky after it rains, when the sunlight peaks through the clouds again.
"Pine Tree on Water (Kancamagus Spring)" by Gwen Nagel shows the view of the water near the shore. Not relying on the color green as much, but nonetheless captivates the feeling of spring.
"Water Iris" by Mary Ellen Serina shows a beautiful iris, a very prominent symbol for spring. It's a simple showcase of the flower but conveys all the emotion springtime brings.
Lastly, we have "Chickens in Springtime" by Sandy Crowell, which depicts chickens in a springtime field. This piece in particular reminds us of times to look forward to, with vast green fields filled with animals. Come see more works at Harvest Gold Gallery!
Today's project at Harvest Gold was stringing beads to create some beautiful new necklaces! Amethyst and Aquamarine were the primary gemstones being used today, Amethyst being February's birthstone and Aquamarine being March's. In certain cultures, Amethyst means healing, calmness, and wisdom. Aquamarine, on the other hand, symbolize tranquility, serenity, and calmness.
Stringing pearls is a tedious but fun and rewarding task! If you put your mind to it, you can make quite a lot of beautiful necklaces! These necklaces will soon be put onto the website, so keep an eye open for them!
