Paintings by Bowdoin Assistant Professor of Art James Mullen are currently being featured in a one-person exhibition in New York City.
"Water's Edge: Landscape Paintings Along the Coast of Maine" is on view at the Sherry French Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, New York, through October 29, 2005.
An opening reception for the artist will be held Saturday, October 8 from 1 to 4 p.m.
According to the Gallery's exhibition description, "In 'Water's Edge' James Mullen paints the majestic landscape of Maine for its admired variety and complexity.... James Mullen's one-man show displays his finest works from Maine, allowing the viewer to see it as he does, which can only be described as unparalleled."
Mullen's paintings are oil on Plexiglas. He says he enjoys painting Maine because "Maine offers so many different types of environments, weather and light that the visual possibilities feel endless." He joined Bowdoin's Visual Arts Department in 1999.
