Maple and Main is proud to host beloved artist Janine Robertson’s fourth annual solo show, “Luminous Perspectives’ in the Stone Gallery during the month of December.

Janine started her art career as a muralist and trompe l’oeil painter, eventually changing her focus to landscape painting and discovering her affinity for aluminum and copper as a substrate. The depth and light of the metal’s reflective surface adds dimension to her work which has an ethereal quality yet is grounded in her subject matter - the marshes and woodlands of New England. Most of her work centers on scenes along the Connecticut shoreline – some begun plein air; some from her imagination.

Janine regularly shows her work in Maple and Main and at Lyme Art Association but also does public and private commission work.

The paintings in this show are newly created.

Local farms and artisans will sell their honey, fish, maple syrup, cheese and more along the sidewalks in the town center while merchants serve food and drink and offer unique holiday gift ideas during the four Sundays between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Called Holiday Market, this annual event features food from the vendors in the popular Summer Sunday Market from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and special happenings at the shops and galleries.

At Maple and Main Gallery, we will have a silent auction for four paintings beginning the first Sunday, Nov. 26 and every day through Dec. 17. On the four Sundays, we’ll be serving hot chocolate with marshmallows and candy canes and cookies.

The framed paintings by Maple and Main artists are of a barn in Chester by Claudia Van Nes; the Maine Coast by Jean Watson; a cottage by the sea by Donna Favreau and deer in the snow by Cathy Ciardiello.

From luminous landscapes to abstract collages to scenes from the creators’ rich imaginations, the show features over 200 paintings and sculptures by 56 established artists from all corners of Connecticut.

There will be dozens of small works on display, perfect for gift-giving, but art of any size is always a special and enduring present. Well-executed original art is not necessarily expensive; it’s knowing where to look for it.

In Maple and Main’s Stone Gallery during November is a solo show of marine art by gallery artist Peter Barrett and during December, the annual show of gallery artist Janine Robertson’s paintings.

The Holiday Exhibit runs through January 21.
