“Summer Art Preview: New shows opening in Portland, Rockport and Ogunquit” | Maine Today

We’ve heard for years that painting is dead.

Not so fast.

The early-summer season at Maine museums is full of what should be terrific art exhibitions spotlighting some of Maine’s best known and most accomplished painters. There are other exhibitions as well, including a major examination of Shaker objects and lifestyle, a focus on art and jazz and a deep examination of sculptor Bernard Langlais.

IF YOU GO

WHAT: Beech Hill Preserve, Coastal Mountains Land Trust’s
cornerstone preserve and an unusual place in the midcoast region.

WHEN: The preserve is open year-round; the hut is open two
days a week from May through October.

WHERE: In Rockport off Beech Hill Road, between routes 1 and
17.

HIKING IT: It’s just three-quarters of a mile on the old
farm road from the parking area to the stone hut.

WHAT ELSE: Walkers must stay on the path and dogs must be on
leashes. This is important to allow the land trust to continue the organic
farming effort on the blueberry fields.
