Encaustic, Acrylic Art of ‘kdb’ Dominguez at PWA
The Bath artist who goes by the name of “kdb” Dominguez is exhibiting her work in an exhibit titled “Birds in the Wilderland” through Monday, Nov. 20 at the Pemaquid Watershed Association office-gallery, 584 Main St., Damariscotta.
Dominguez’s love affair with art and nature is a colorful collision of science and art mixed with graphic elements. She is passionate about nature and uses many mediums and techniques to tell the story of the natural world. Dominguez describes herself as an artist, a photographer, a curious naturalist, and a passionate observer.
Dominguez believes there is a greater force than man, a spirit of love and acceptance that dwells in the great outdoors. She has explored many different mediums in her artistic endeavors with painting and photography and her favorite mediums are encaustic and acrylic. All living things deserve respect, kindness, and reverence every moment of every day, the artist believes. Respecting nature and each other will lead to understanding and harmony and a life worth living, Dominguez says. She is in year four of a climate change project called “WilderlandMaine,” which began as a one-year project.

The purpose of art exhibits at Pemaquid Watershed Association’s office-gallery is to mutually benefit the artists and PWA. The exhibits provide an opportunity for the artists to gain local exposure of their works that depict the beauty of the natural environment while being an attraction to bring people into the office to learn about PWA’s mission.
The PWA office is open weekdays from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
A generous portion of the proceeds from the current exhibit’s sales is being donated to support PWA’s mission of conserving the natural resources of the Pemaquid Peninsula region through land and water stewardship and education.
