Art Exhibit “Loving Acadia” Now Open at Northeast Harbor Gallery
New Art Exhibit at Smart Studio in Northeast Harbor, Maine
An art exhibit, titled “Loving Acadia” is now open through September to celebrate Acadia National Park’s 100 anniversary.
Wini visited Maine while still a teenager and fell in love with the area. She and her family came again camping in Acadia when her daughter Gail was only three years old. The next year the family bought a houseboat, first living in Bar Harbor and then Northeast Harbor. “The children remember that to be the greatest, spending summers aboard a boat in Northeast Harbor and it gave me a opportunity to paint all over the area.” Wini remembers. Wini opened the Smart Studio in 1967 and she and the family have come ever since. They would often return for short holidays in the winter months also.
“Gail has always been artistic and now she and her husband run the gallery, showing her large watercolors and acrylics. They like to hike and climb mountains so she has paintings of sweeping vistas. I like to look back at the mountains for my inspiration.”
The exhibit shows paintings in watercolor, oil and acrylic of many places in the Acadia Park: Schoodic, Seawall, Parkman and Cadillac Mountains and Ocean Drive.
