Valentine's Weekend Reception

Saturday, February 15th,   4:00 - 6:00 pm 

Hosted by The Inn on Mount Desert Street, 68 Mt. Desert St. , Bar Harbor

Love is in the Air at the Inn on Mount Desert Street!  Please join us for The Gallery at Somes Sound's first Pop Up Show featuring Maine seascape and landscape paintings by  Craig Mooney and Anne Ireland.   

You will notice how Craig Mooney's paintings create dramatic moments and heightened emotionality that are known for being expansive and expressive. Though a representational painter, Mooney incorporates a myriad of abstract qualities throughout his work. 

Similarly, Anne Ireland's intent is to transform the iconic into the newly discovered, transporting the viewer to a place that is at once familiar and foreign, a place that asks questions and demands answers, a place of infinite possibility.  

"Mooney and Ireland create their paintings using unpredictable yet predictable colors, mastering the technique of inviting their viewers into their seascape and landscape paintings .. keeping them there for a pleasurable moment in time"  Tyra Hanson, Director, Gallery at Somes Sound

The Show will run from February 14 - 21 at The Inn and is available for public viewing.
