Greetings from Kennebunk, Maine

“I’ve had people look at it, and go: ‘that reminds me of, could that place be … is that the Adirondacks?’ Or ‘Is that the hotel that’s on Kennebunk Beach?’ And the answer is yes. Because I am painting real places … that sense of ‘I’ve been there before’ — I think is part of what I’d like the viewer to have.” — Kathleen Best Gillmann

One of the reasons we love “Vision at Water’s Edge” so much is the way it transports you to the places depicted in the paintings.

Another reason: all of these paintings depict real places.

The artist, Kathleen Best Gillmann, shared with us the locations depicted in the exhibit. With one exception (a lake in the Adirondacks) the painted waterscapes can be found within a two-mile radius of Parsons Beach in Kennebunk, Maine. Mousam River, Merriland River, Lords Point, Mothers Beach, and Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge are just some of the locations you can see in the gallery this month.

So we made a map to take you there. Check it out, and click on the pins to see a photo of each painting!

“Vision at Water’s Edge” is on view through Sunday, August 7.
