Eric Hudson painting on Monhegan with Maude Briggs Knowlton and Alice Swett looking on. Image courtesy of the Monhegan Historical and Cultural Museum Organization.

Eric Hudson (1862-1932) Hudson first visited Monhegan in 1897 aboard his sloop the Minstrel with artists Frank Myrick and Marshall Johnson on their way to Mount Desert Island. He returned the following year and built a house next to George Everett’s, overlooking the harbor. Hudson spent most of his remaining summers on the island with his wife, Gertrude Dunton, and their two daughters, Julie and Jacqueline. Hudson was friends with many important artists of his era, including Robert Henri, George Bellows and Randall Davey.  When they visited Monhegan they would gather at his island home. Hudson’s late nineteenth-century paintings of the island are muted and subdued when compared with his later work, which reflects his exposure to modernism. His palette became more rich and vibrant, and his brushstrokes more bold.  Hudson studied at the Boston Museum School and the Académie Julian in Paris, and with Marshall Johnson. He exhibited widely, at the Boston Art Club, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Corcoran Gallery and at the Palais du Luxembourg in Paris. Hudson moved from Boston to New York, where he lived first at Washington Square, then in the famous 10th Street Studio Building, and finally at Gramercy Park. He was an associate member of the National Academy of Design. Special thanks to the Portland Museum of Art and the Monhegan Museum.

Maine Gallery + Studio Guide This is the 10th edition of Maine Gallery + Studio Guide. Looking back, it seems as if the universe conspired to make much of it happen, even though I am surely blocking out the more painful parts. For 15 years prior to its launch, I published weekly visitor guides to resort destinations in Maine including Bar Harbor, Boothbay Harbor, Belgrade Lakes, Sugarloaf/USA and Sunday River. I felt I had the best job in Maine. In Boothbay Harbor I had many advertising art studios and galleries and became friends with a number of the artists. This publication was first imagined over coffee at the East Boothbay home and gallery of Joan and Carlton Plummer (see pages 44 and 59). Their enthusiasm provided my initial impetus to start up a Maine art guide. A guide for galleries? A guide for artists? I struggled for a name until Corinne McIntyre of neighboring Ocean Point Studio suggested calling it Maine Gallery and Studio Guide. Perfect. Peggy Greenhut Golden, of Portland’s Greenhut Galleries, signed up for the first full-page ad and we were off and running. Maine art writer Carl Little was a most helpful advisor, and he wrote all the intros in earlier editions. He confided that many had attempted to create a statewide art guide, but this was the first to stick. Six years ago, I started “Café des Artistes” as a blog on our web site to list and promote the many wonderful art openings, shows and exhibitions presented by our advertising galleries, studios and museums. The following year I started a short radio program of the same name, co-hosted by MPBN veteran Victor Hathaway, to publicize Maine art news to a much larger audience. Today, Café des Artistes is a blog, a weekly email newsletter (May-October) and a popular statewide radio show that airs on WERU 89.9 FM in Blue Hill and WMPG 90.9FM in Portland. Visitors to our web site www.mainegalleryguide.com can sign up to receive the free Café newsletter and can listen to our weekly podcast anytime. I hope you will visit our web site often to stay up-to-date on Maine art events as well as to be linked to the artists, galleries and museums listed. Art adds beauty and value to our lives and homes. An op-ed piece I wrote entitled “Giving the Gift of Art” was published in the Bangor Daily News December 12, 2009. It is reprinted here on page 140. Thank you for 10 wonderful years. Suzanne and I feel a huge debt of gratitude to the many galleries, studio artists and museums who have supported us each and every year, and to the loyal readers and art lovers who use us as their personal guide to an extraordinary world of Maine art. Enjoy our latest tour!

“A lot of what I do is about being in the moment and I think that’s hard for people to get. I like it when things suddenly affect the painting. I mix up this red and it affects the whole painting or this little bit of white falls down there, and something changes the whole nature of the thing. The residue on what happens, that’s what’s in the paintings.” —Julian Schnabel

You meet the nicest people at an art show. Here friends BG Thorpe and Hellmut Juretschke great each other at the opening of “Along the Maine Coast” last summer in the Blue Hill Bay Gallery.

The Maine Craft Guild’s Mount Desert Island Show is often referred to as the most outstanding, most successful, and longest-running craft show in Maine. At the upcoming 35th Annual Show, July 30th to August 1st, 80 of Maine’s finest craftspeople will fill the newly renovated gymnasium at the Mount Desert Island High School with their work, transforming the space into a gallery-like setting of carefully designed individual displays. Come and meet extraordinary artisans and purchase work of heirloom quality handmade here in Maine. 92

Last summer’s opening of Redfield Gallery’s “Maine Coastal Views 1880-1980” showed Maine masters and good friends alike. Pictured here are Sunne Savage of Sunne Savage Gallery, Winchester, Mass., Robert Neuman, renowned contemporary artist and Rita Redfield, owner of Redfield Gallery in Northeast Harbor. The 2010 show will open on August 5, and the public is invited.

Sam Shaw and gallery director Hilary Orr welcome visitors and art lovers to Shaw Jewelry in Northeast Harbor. Shaw Jewelry presents changing shows with openings, live jazz, good food and interesting guests every other Thursday during the summer. This summer Sam is launching the new Northeast Video Shorts Festival, Thursday, July 29, 4–11 pm in Northeast Harbor. 93

Painting of Angus by Elizabeth Fraser of Portland www.paintsquared.com

Giving the Gift of Art Last Christmas my wife gave me a painting she had commissioned of my dog Angus. Angus was a big handsome Airedale Terrier that loved to ride in Saab convertibles. I lost him two years ago and miss him terribly. The painting of him standing on the back deck of the Saab allows him to always be with me and I see him every day. I was overjoyed by the gift and will treasure it always. It is also a testament of how thoughtful my wife is. If you want to give a gift that shows thoughtfulness and love, a gift that is unique and artistic, a gift that embodies intelligence and integrity while touching and benefiting many, I suggest giving the gift of Maine art. Maine art and fine crafts are the real thing. Maine is a mecca for fine visual arts with a national and international reputation. Maine artists and fine craft artisans create products that add beauty, joy and value to our homes and lives. Why not give their creations as gifts from the heart? Consider this: when you purchase art by a local artist, you are supporting that artist, their family and the local community. Your purchase is making it 140

possible for future art to be made. You also now have the opportunity to become a collector of their work, a modest patron perhaps, a supporter of their career. The more knowledge and involvement you have with a piece and its creator, the more value it will hold. Speaking of value, you’ll find there’s lots of it in giving the gift of art. First of all, the gift of a personally selected piece of art demonstrates your value and high regard for the recipient. Secondly, the recipient gets a gift that can proudly be on display for years, a memento of the gift giving and the occasion. Most art and fine crafts sold in Maine are in the $100 to $500 price range, often less and often more. They come in an unending assortment and variety of paintings, sculptures and fine crafts. Paintings and photographs can give inspiration, wonder and maybe something different every time you look at them. Fine crafts are often utilitarian (vases, bowls, jewelry, clothing) while also being works of art that beautify and elevate our living and work interiors. Two places to find perfect Maine art gifts are art galleries and artist studios. Galleries offer a handpicked selection of work, most often by local artists, that have been carefully vetted and chosen for their quality, beauty and integrity. Artist studios are where the artist creates and sells their own work. A visit to a studio is a chance to meet the artist, and if you purchase a work it puts you on the ground floor of the “story” of the piece. And the story also adds to the value.

When you purchase art by a local artist, you are supporting that artist, their family and the local community.

There are a lot of excellent fine art and crafts shows and many wonderful Maine art galleries and museums. Everywhere there are galleries there are artist studios too, more numerous and usually less visible. Use Maine Gallery + Studio Guide to locate the treasures nearby and to learn of interesting Openings and Shows occurring around you. If you give a gift of Maine art, you will be doing something good for the giver, the recipient, and the artist and their family. Don’t forget birthdays, graduations and special occasions in the future. Also, a gift of art to your spouse or child becomes a gift to the whole household. I attended an opening last month in which many ladies where wearing artist-made jewelry, scarves and clothing that made them appear as artistic and elegant as the works on display. Fine visual art can elevate and beautify our homes and offices. And apparently, even ourselves. Consider giving the gift of art. It will be a gift of conscience, helping a local Maine artist and the local community. It will be a gift of lasting beauty and value. It will be a gift that shows where your heart and priorities are. And it will be a gift that will be cherished long after the wrappings are cleared away.

Print Definitions What is an original?

An “original print” is the image on paper or a similar material made by one or more processes, which we will define below. Each process has a special identifiable quality, but because more than one impression of each image is possible, “original” does not necessarily mean unique. The artist’s intention to create an original is the key to the “originality” of the finished work. For example, if an artist first conceives of a painting, then has the result copied and made into a limited edition print, the result is not original but a reproduction. But if an artist conceives of an image and directly transfers his thoughts by carving the image on a woodblock or on a lithographic stone, then the result is an original print as it was intended to be. In the latter, the artist has control over the process from beginning to end and is the producer of the image. In the former situation, whereby a print was made from an original painting, the skill involved is that of the printing company with little or no involvement by the artist except to sign the print after it has been completed.

Nine types of prints

The total number of prints made from one image is known as an “edition.” The number may appear on the print with the individual print number shown in relation to the total number “planned” to be printed; i.e., 6/75 means that this is print number six from a total edition of 75. Either before or at the number 75, the means used to print the image (etching plate, lithographic stone, woodblock) is destroyed or defaced so that no additional prints can be made beyond what was planned. There are numerous types of prints and methods to make them. Below are the nine most common types of prints on the market, antique or otherwise. In all cases but one (limited edition), the print is the direct creation of the artist and his skill and may take weeks or months to complete.

Woodblock

This type of print (black and white or color) is made by the artist cutting its design into various types of wood facings. In working the block, the artist cuts away areas not meant to print. These cut-away areas appear in the finished print as the white parts of the design while the ink adheres to the raised parts. If the print is colored, it requires separately cut blocks for each color and all must fit (register) together for the print to present a correct image.

Etching

A metal plate is coated by an acid-resistant material. The artist then draws his design on the ground with a sharp needle, which removes the ground where the needle touches it. The metal plate is then put into an acid bath, which eats away at the areas scratched off by the artist. This produces a sunken line or groove in the metal plate, which will hold the ink when the print is to be printed on paper. All surface ink is wiped away and the printed image is transferred to dampened paper under pressure on a printing press.

Drypoint

The sunken lines or grooves are produced by the artist with diamond-hard tools pulled across the metal plate. The depth of the sunken line is controlled by the artist’s muscle and experience. This method of cutting produces a ridge along the incisions called a burr, giving the print a soft, velvety appearance that is absent in the clean-edged lines of an engraving or etching. 142


Aquatint

A process using a copper plate that is protected by a semi-acid resistant material. The areas not to be printed are painted with an acid-resistant varnish. The plate is then repeatedly put in acid baths where the unprotected areas are “etched” to different depths. The final effect is an image on a fine pebbled background. Aquatint is normally used in conjunction with etchings and drypoints and is also a process by which color is added to the print.

Lithograph

The artist draws the image directly on a flat stone or specially prepared metal plate, usually with a greasy crayon. The stone is dampened with water and then inked. The ink clings to the crayon marks, but not to the damp areas. When paper is pressed against the stone, the ink on the greasy parts is transferred to the paper.

Chromolithography

A process primarily used during the 19th and early 20th centuries, it was the “new-found” art of printing pictures from stone in colors. In a broad sense, a chromo is a lithograph composed of at least three colors, each applied to the print from a separate stone. Many of these prints took months to complete but were useful in that they allowed hundreds of images to be printed. Old circus posters are chromoliths.

Serigraph or screenprint

The artist prepares a tightly stretched screen, usually of silk, and blocks out areas not to be printed by filling up the mesh of the screen with a varnish-like substance. The paper is then placed under the screen and the ink is forced through the still-open mesh onto the paper.

Limited edition print

This is not considered an original since it is normally a print of an existing art work such as an oil painting or watercolor. Initially the artwork is photographed, the image projected onto a printing surface and printed in quantities of 500 or more. The skill involved here is that of the printing company and its ability to re-create the colors in the original. After printing, the artist signs each piece and usually numbers them. I do not consider these fine art prints as are the other types of prints discussed in this article. These prints fall into the “decorative prints” category.

Some common concerns

A signature on the print is a form of guarantee that the signer has inspected and approved the content of the particular print. Original signed prints will normally be signed in pencil outside of the image on the lower left or right margins of the print. The earliest prints were not signed. Until the latter half of the 19th century, prints were only rarely hand-signed in pencil by the artist. Sometimes an artist would sign a print by hand when giving it or selling it to a friend or colleague. Hand-signing a print, implying the artist’s approval of the impression, became a custom during the second half of the 19th century. At that time it was practiced by some artists some of the time, by others most of the time and by others not at all. Felix Buhot, Seymour Hayden and James Whistler were among the first generation of artists to hand-sign or monogram prints. The custom has grown more popular and today collectors prefer to buy signed impressions rather that unsigned ones. The term “IMP” handwritten on a print is an abbreviation of the Latin word “Impressit” meaning “he has printed it.” Numbering is a practice that also started in the latter part of the 19th century. The artists would number the editions of their prints; i.e., #1, #2, etc. Additionally, and into the 20th century, the custom of indicating the number of the print and the total to be printed became commonplace. Normally, fine art prints are produced in editions of 250 or less. by Wayne Keilsmeier, courtesy of Covington Fine Arts, Tucson, Arizona 143
