Fleeting Light by John Neubauer

Aug 5, 2016 @ 5:00pm   Events, Member Events

John Neubauer is no newbie when it comes to oil painting. He has been honing his skills for decades and the result he captures is magical. A master of soft edges and streaming light, his paintings ooze with peacefulness. Come bask in his dreamy landscapes.
I’m really pleased to announce that our Studio Exhibit, also opening on August 5, will be showcasing two talented students of mine, Elisabeth P Salberg and Dawn Maron.
Elisabeth P Salberg paints oils with confidence. She’s drawn to the textures found in nature and develops them with a mixture of rich and subtle hues.
Dawn Maron recently switched from watercolor to oils and will be presenting her oil paintings. Her bright rich palette is a reflection of her personality and it dances happily throughout her work.
Salburg and Maron will be exhibiting Maine scenery including a few animals.
Please join us for these two wonderful exhibits along with works of 25 artists from 10 different countries. Both studio artists will be present for the opening.

Where: Roux & Cyr International Fine Art Gallery, 48 Free Street

When: Friday, August 5 5:00-8:00pm This exhibit runs through August 26.
