October Exhibitions:

Cyr Gallery - PVI/RLE (Amicus)

amicusThe PVI and Ralph Leek Elders program displays in the Cyr Gallery for October.

The PVI Art comparison study group originally began with each member choosing an artist that they liked. Since then, they have compared and contrasted various artists that they study with those original artists. The group has studied various genres. They have also studied a variety of techniques used in the pieces chosen for their studies. In their art comparison group, they have each created pieces related to their studies. This exhibit is comprised of some of those study pieces.



The Cyr and the Lecture Hall Gallery - Amicus Photo Exhibit

amicusReflections on Living in Maine" is the theme of our exhibit. It can be interpreted literally or symbolic in the photos. The photos were taken by our clients in various groups at Amicus/PVI/RLE.

Today, the Downeast Artist Guild features eight artists and plans to highlight the process by which they create the final painting: from value studies, preliminary sketches, and the photos that lead to the painting.

The painting to the left was created by Deborah Jellison.
