Thornton Oaks Retirement Community presents “Maine – The Way Life IS” an art exhibit featuring the work of Jan Roberson.
A resident of Harpswell, Jan is inspired by her deep love of sea, woods, and all things Maine. Her use of soft pastel brings a quiet realism to her many paintings, often including colorful morning and evening skies.
A graduate of The Waynflete School in Portland, she received a BA and an MA Ed from The College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. She received her Bachelor in Fine Arts in 2005 from the University of Southern Maine. She also attended classes at Maine College of Art and Lyme Academy of Art. Jan received additional instruction from several prominent artists, including Albert Handell, Robert Carsten, Richard McKinley and Lorenzo Chavez. In 2004 she traveled to Russia to study with internationally acclaimed pastelist Serguei Oussik.
Jan was juried into The Pastel Society of America as an Associate Member. She has paintings in private collections in Maine, across the country, Canada and the United Kingdom. Her work has been shown in The Boothbay Regional Gallery, The Kittery Art Association Gallery and The Maine Art Gallery.
The public is invited to attend this free event. The exhibit remains open to the public during select times throughout February and March. Please call our business office at 373-4600 to find out times the exhibit is available for viewing.
