DOWN EAST MAINE COLLECTION

Soft Opening - Meet the artist on June 1st, 1:00 - 5:00 pm

Kaitlyn Metcalf lives near Mount Desert Island spending the Spring, Summer & Autumn months exploring the nooks & crannies of the Acadia region. Creativity abounds in her studio which is nestled in a boreal fog forest, on the down east coast of Maine.   Most of Kaitlyn’s paintings are based on her experiences living in rural Maine, with water often being at the center of focus.

A graduate of Maine College of Art & Design (MECA) in Portland, Metcalf relocated to down east Maine to be close to the rugged coast and rural landscape that surround Acadia National Park.  Varying elements such as barnacles, thread, fishing line, charts, sand, clay, glass beads and gold leaf are mixed into her paintings to expand not only surface interest, but to also create a dialogue between object and imagery.
