Artist to exhibit landscape screens



MOUNT DESERT — Ohio artist David LaPalombara is exhibiting recent examples of his painted landscape screens at the Star Gallery in Northeast Harbor from Aug. 13-26.

Each four-panel screen depicts a different landscape on each side. The paintings on a folded surface include views from Mount Desert Island and attempt to capture the essence of particular places and enhance the perception of space.

LaPalombara last exhibited in Northeast Harbor in 2008, when the fire at Wingspread Gallery destroyed all of his art along with the work of numerous other artists. This exhibition at Star Gallery is a welcome Northeast Harbor homecoming.

The gallery is open from Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

Contact Katherine Stroud Bucklin at the Star Gallery at 276-3060. Visit www.davidlapalombara.com.
