Ellsworth – Courthouse Gallery Fine Art is pleased to present “Winter is Coming,” a group show that celebrates the change of season as Maine transitions from summer into fall and winter. There will be an open house Wednesday, December 6 from 5–7pm. The show runs from December 1–December 30, 2017. The event is free and open to the public.

Interpretations for “Winter is Coming” run the gamut from William Irvine’s iconic house painting with a woman burning brush and Philip Barter’s dancing smelt shacks to David Vickery’s larger-than-life realistic oil painting of marbles and Philip Koch’s memory of a magical winter wonderland. New to the gallery is Henry Isaacs who lives in Portland, Maine, but spent many years living and painting on Cranberry Island. His oil painting “Along the Tarn, Bar Harbor” seems to exemplify the seasonal transition with a range of yellows and rusty reds juxtaposed against purple, green, and blue.

Participating artists, include Berenice Abbott, Susan Amons, Janice Anthony, Philip Barter, Jeffery Becton, Judy Belasco, Ragna Bruno, Philip Frey, June Grey, Henry Isaacs, William Irvine, Jessica Lee Ives, Philip Koch, Judith Leighton, William Moise, Emily Muir, Ed Nadeau, Carl Nelson, John Neville, Linda Packard, Colin Page, Alison Rector, Robert Shillady, Lilian Day Thorpe, David Vickery.

Courthouse Gallery is located at 6 Court Street in Ellsworth. Winter hours: Tuesday–Saturday 10–5pm. For more information call 667-6611, or visit
