Last year in 2011, Jan, Claudia and Lou took an amazing painting trip to Maine.....

Daryl Hinkson, Claudia Post, Jan Blencowe, Lou Zucchi

It was a trip that inspired new directions in their work, refreshed their artistic spirits and forged a deep bond with the landscape of Maine, a bond that is unique to the landscape painter or photographer.

This year, artist Joan Cole joins the group as they push further down east along the Maine coast to a special (and secret!) location.

The Maine Attraction Exhibit, Oct. 18-21, at the Essex Art Association Gallery, 10 North Main Street, Essex, CT is your opportunity to see the work produced from this extraordinary trip.
