Just a heads-up -- if you haven't been to the Maine Maritime Museum, now would be an excellent time to go!
Artist Zach Horn contacted me and mentioned his intriguing take on Winslow Homer, on exhibit now through November 27, 2022 at the museum (alongside other great exhibits!).
The show, called "Looking for Winslow Homer," is a combination of installation, painting, and stop motion
animation. Zach's work is about the metaphysical connection to place. Winslow Homer was observant and expressive enough in his work to be able to capture the unique "self" of the Maine landscape in all its guises, from pastoral to dramatic, from simple to overwhelming. You can find info about the show here:
If you'd like to check out the museum but miss the show, here's the link to their website for hours, etc.:
OR if you happen to be in Vermont and not in Maine, Zach is also putting together another very intriguing artshow I'm sure you'll all love, an exhibition about inexplicable occurrences which will be on display at the Bennington Museum this fall, called "In the Shadow of the Hills."
