 Second Nature — Art Show Opening at Thornton Oaks Retirement Community

Contact: Don Kniseley, Executive Director, 207-373-4600, dkniseley@thorntonoaks.com

Thornton Oaks Retirement Community invites the public to the opening reception of Second Nature, an exhibit by Ed McCartan, Wednesday, June 5, at 4:00 p.m. in the Merrymeeting Room at 25 Thornton Way, Brunswick. The public is welcome to attend. There is no admission fee.

Ed McCartan lives in Brunswick with a studio in the old Bath Memorial Hospital.  He retired from teaching studio art and art history in 2002, most recently at the Emma Willard School and Russell Sage College in Troy, NY.  He has an MFA in painting and advanced degrees in philosophy, theology, and education.  He currently offers an occasional workshop and regularly teaches art history and art appreciation at Mid Coast Senior College.  Ed has work in private and corporate collections and the permanent collections of several museums.

“My paintings and mixed-media work are an exploration of botanical and gestural imagery.  I often use a double image because I am interested in the ‘dialogue’ that it creates between different areas of the work.”  Ed uses small natural forms, twigs, ferns, flowers. etc. and leavea room for experimentation with sumi-like strokes and lines and the layering of glazes throughout  the composition.  “I go to nature and the possibilities inherent in the materials for inspiration.  It is an ongoing endeavor.”

The exhibit will run through June and July.  After the opening reception, call the Thornton Oaks office at 373-4600 for best times for viewing.

Thornton Oaks Retirement Community is a homeowners cooperative and includes 46 cottages and 98 apartments nestled in 29 wooded acres in Brunswick.  Thornton Oaks is affiliated with Mid Coast-Parkview Health.
