Dickinson opening set

MOUNT DESERT — Landscape painter Nat Dickinson will exhibit his work at Swallowfield in Northeast Harbor from Aug. 4-18, with an opening reception on Thursday, Aug. 4, from 4-7 p.m.

Dickinson’s paintings explore mindful moments when we stop to see the extraordinary transformations of very familiar surroundings. In his daily walks, the changes in light, atmosphere, perspective and color can make the most ordinary scenes captivating. As Edward Hopper said, “There is a sort of elation about sunlight on the upper part of a house.”

Dickinson spends winters in Asheville, N.C., and summers in Deer Isle. This will be his first show on Mount Desert Island.

Swallowfield is a new shop and gallery at 104 Main St in Northeast Harbor, run by artist Jennifer Judd-McGee with Patti Savoie and Michelle Souza, owners of Spruce and Gussy in Bar Harbor.
