Story posted November 03, 2000

The exhibit "Frema Kutler Rauh: Works in Four Media" is on display in Lancaster Lounge, Moulton Union, through November 29. The Lounge is open from 8 a.m. to midnight, daily. Watercolors by Suzi Thayer are on display in Lamarch Lounge through the month of November. For information call 725-3375.

An opening reception for Rauh's exhibit will be from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 5. Rauh has worked extensively in pencil, pen and ink, pastel and gouache, and this retrospective exhibition features examples of each medium. Many of her subjects are derived from the natural world. Her pencil drawings are simple and intricate, while her pen-and-ink drawings focus on spatial relationships. The larger compositions in gouache and pastels are more complex and constructe with a sensitivity to chromatic weight. Rauh has said her objective is to "achieve balance and movement through the use of brilliant tones and subtle hues."

Rauh has lived and worked in Maine for 15 years. She studied at Skidmore College and the Cleveland Institute of Art. Since moving to Maine, she has exhibited at Round Top Center for the Arts, the Gallery in Round Pond, The Maine Art Gallery Juried Exhibitions, the Chocolate Church Art Gallery Juried Exhibitions, the Boothbay Region Art Association Gallery, and the Saltwater Artistís Gallery. (Through November 30)

Thayer has been painting in Maine for 35 years. Her watercolors are all done from life, on location. She lives in Edgecomb with her dog, Charlie, and spends summers at a family cottage in Cushing.
