Andy Curran’s new paintings and cards now showing at Harvest Gold Gallery through Columbus Day.
Andy Curran’s emotional connections with the natural environment throughout New England are captured in his acrylic paintings. Born and raised in Westbrook Maine he knows Maine and may even be considered a local by some. He received his bachelors of fine arts degree from University of Southern Maine and currently spends his time creating new pieces in his studio on family land in Westbrook.
As a hiker and explorer Andy imprisons his experiences in nature in his mind until he can express them on canvas. His impeccable memory of seascapes, mountains and meadows guide his paintings. When back in the studio he evokes the feelings of his travels and creates moving renditions of nature.
Many of his paintings have been put on 100% recycled greeting cards. Each card is accompanied by a poem expressly written by Andy to reflect his feelings and impressions about the painting. His cards are a perfect souvenir of Maine to take on your travels.
Curran’s paintings and cards can be seen at Harvest Gold Gallery on Route 5 in Center Lovell. The gallery is the proud recipient of “Best Gallery with a View” this year in Best of New England by Yankee Magazine. Open daily the gallery can be reached at 207-925-6502 and on the web www.harvestgoldgalley.com.
