A Little More from Maine

As with any destination that caters to tourists, much of the art here is "memento art," with memories of that place. This can get tedious -- please, no more lobster boats! no more paintings of fantastic sunsets! Then there is an exhibit of David Dewey's small gouaches at the Caldbeck Gallery, in Rockland, that are so tight and right on, that it will inspire you to deal with horse flies and f**king no-see-ums, to continue to paint the landscape.

I saw Hannah Bureau's paintings in the Saachi booth at this past year's Pulse Fair; as a matter of fact, I liked her work so much that it's one of my fondest memories, and here she is in a summer group show at gWatson in Stonnington.


Next to Bureau are three gems by Robin Reynolds; she finds the lyrical beauty in a chaotic natural world.
