Past Show

Camden Falls Gallery is pleased to announce the new fall show, “Painting Monhegan”, featuring 2009 Monhegan Artists’ Residency Corporation (MARC) recipient, Daniel Corey.

Daniel Corey received the prestigious MARC award for 2009 which provided him with lodging and a stipend allowing him to spend a five week residency on the island. Forty artists applied for this award that is given to an emerging Maine artist each summer. Daniel has just returned from his sojourn on Monhegan with the superb collection of work, a portion of which is now showing at Camden Falls Gallery. Daniel is a traditional painter rooted in the aesthetic values of the Ashcan school and the impressionists of the Cape Cod School of Art. Inspired by light quality, color harmony and abstract shapes, his paintings are created from direct observation. Enjoying the challenge of painting nontraditional views and subjects, he finds the beauty in them, along with what he interprets as, “what makes Maine, Maine.”

Join in Daniel’s visual and emotional journey by visiting this show which is open now and will run through November. A reception to meet the artist reception will be held Sunday, November 22nd from 5-7 pm. The public is welcome. Camden Falls Gallery is proud to showcase this talented emerging Maine artist.
