SOUTHWEST HARBOR — An exhibit of new work by artist Beth G. is on display at the Southwest Harbor Public Library through February.
An artist reception is set for Monday, Feb. 11 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
The paintings were done on location in Southwest Harbor and Deer Isle.
“Lambert’s colorful expressive style is a result of deeply listening to what speaks to her when she goes outdoors to paint,” exhibit organizers said. “She allows her mind and heart to empty and soften so she can paint directly from a place of spaciousness, capturing with color the experience of connecting to nature. She often returns to the same location and always wonders what she will notice anew in the fleeting experience of painting.”
Lambert earned her BFA in Studio Art from the University of Texas in Austin. She married and moved to Maine in 1981 and stayed home to raise 3 children. Then she returned to full-time painting, and especially enjoys working close to her home in Manset. Her husband, Ray, makes all of her wood panels and float frames.
