HERE AND NOW Exhibition and Artist Talk at Page Gallery

May 10, 2024

CAMDEN – Page Gallery is pleased to present HERE AND NOW, an exhibition of paintings from Gideon Bok, Susan Lichtman, and Terry Powers featuring intimate interior views; an art studio, a family home, and the spaces in between. The exhibition will open with a public reception during the Camden Art Walk on Thursday, May 16 from 5-7 pm and will be on display through June 14. Camden artist Gideon Bok will present an artist talk about his work on Sunday, June 2 at 1 pm.

Gideon Bok’s studio is rife with expression and creativity. His paintings develop slowly, as he paints an ever-evolving movement of people and objects. His easel at the center, Bok documents his studio’s interior, the presence of his children and reminders of family and friends, while offering a glimpse of the landscape through the windows. Signs, instruments and records punctuate the room, telling stories of the activity within the space.

A figurative painter from Southeastern Massachusetts, Susan Lichtman paints her home, yard, and studio, often with family and friends filling the composition. Using shapes of color to describe figures and architecture, she creates arrangements, scenes within scenes, building a complexity of light and shifting spaces. The result is a portrait of those relationships and an evocative feeling of home.

Terry Powers approaches his paintings with lush, immediate brushwork. He is a witness to his surroundings, painting things as he finds them – scattered clementines, an unfolded quilt, a studio lamp. Powers doesn’t hide the presence of family and studio life in his arrangements, but celebrates it, sensitively observing each piece of the scene.

The opening reception for HERE AND NOW coincides with Camden’s first Art Walk of the season on Thursday, May 16 from 5-7 pm when Bay View Street will be closed to vehicles and there will be live music, a food truck by @brothershucker, crafting with Miss Amy from the Camden Public Library, and galleries and shops open late.
