Artist Marnie Sinclair will showcase her paintings and sculptures at the Pemaquid Watershed Association (PWA) office gallery in downtown Damariscotta from August 17 to October 2. The Association invites the public to a reception for Sinclair from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Friday, August 21.
Sinclair’s artistic inspiration has always come from Nature. Her sense of color, light, design, complexity and balance is exceptional. Her current body of work embraces both the intrigue of the winter light as seen in the oil paintings of the orchids and other flowers, and the extraordinary ability of plants to communicate, as shown in the sculptures. Scientists are only recently coming to understand the sophisticated communication and adaptation that is present in the plant world. Through her research she has discovered some amazing stories of how plants attract pollinators, fend off predators, warn same species of invasions, and recognize kin. She aims to creatively interpret their included stories through her sculpture.
To view the exhibit, visit the Association’s office from 9:30-4:30 weekdays. Sinclair is giving 40% of sales to support the PWA mission of conserving the natural resources of the Pemaquid Peninsula.
