Ellsworth – Courthouse Gallery Fine Art is pleased to present Jessica Lee Ives: Watermark, the gallery’s first solo show for Ives. The show opens on Friday, September 15, with an artist reception from 5–6pm, and an artist talk at 6pm. The show runs through October 28. The event is free and open to the public.
In her most recent series, Ives explores the figure as it moves through water—at the surface, below, and looking down from above—creating colorful ripples or exploding above a swimmer’s head like a jeweled headdress. These contemporary figures, combined with her exquisite portrayal of water, make Ives’ paintings fresh, exciting, and relevant.
Courthouse Gallery is located at 6 Court Street in Ellsworth. Hours: Tuesday–Saturday 10am–5pm. For more information on upcoming shows call 207-667-6611, or visit www.courthousegallery.com
