Welcome to the 15th Annual Paine Mountain Arts Show. While each of the past shows have been unique, this year’s show is like none of the fourteen shows that have preceded it because it is a virtual show.
The artists exhibiting in this year’s show work across many different disciplines and mediums including paint, paper, fiber, photography, metal, wood and clay and represent skill levels from novice to professional. Taken as a whole, the collection creates an amazing collage of work that parallels the community from which the artists live and work.
The theme of this year’s show is, “Making Art During a Pandemic”. The pandemic has impacted all of us, some more than others. What have the experiences been of the makers and artists who have continued at their easel, bench, table, potter’s wheel or lense during this historic period? How has it been different? What are the things that inspire artists to continue working? You’ll see comments from artists about their experiences making art during the past year and how it has both challenged them and in some cases, saved them.
As in past year’s, much of the work is for sale. We ask that you contact the artist directly, using the contact information provided, if you are interested in purchasing work. We have also provided the opportunity to comment on the show and the work of individual artists as well as to share the show with your friends and family.
When you’re ready to view the show, scroll down to see a listing of all the artists. To view the work of an individual artist, click on the corresponding photo and that will take you to their page and collection of work. You can then click on each piece of art to see a larger image.
We hope you enjoy the show!
