The Main Street Gallery, 426 Main Street, Norway, continues its winter season with a First Friday Reception, Feb. 6, from 5-7 p.m. The works of Francoise Lagoutte Fetchko, the gallery’s Artist of the Month, will be featured. Francoise paints landscapes, seascapes, and still lifes in oils. She writes, “Each day I look forward to going up to my little studio to paint in Bryant Pond, Maine. Since my youth in France I have been interested in art and particularly painting. However, when I moved to Maine I had the time and inspiration to express my interest fully. I have taken formal classes in art at the Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, Mass. and at the Maine College of Art in Portland. I have had many teachers.Each has had a different influence. I live in Maine and I continue to visit France, where most of my family lives. I paint both from reality and from photographs, but never from a place or subject I have not seen or experienced personally.”
In addition, for the week before Valentine’s Day, the gallery continues its sale of miniature paintings for $100 or less.
Please join us at our opening and view the collection of original arts, mosaics, landscapes, figurative paintings, still life paintings, jewelry, and more.
The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 to 4. For more information, art classes, demonstrations, and special trips sponsored by the WMAG visit westernmaineartgroup.org and Facebook, Main Street Gallery. The gallery is free and open to the public.
