A lyrical world

Coastal scenes shine through in black and white

“Maine in Black and White” is the focus of Kingman Gallery’s last show of the 2019 season opening Tuesday, Sept. 10. Lamoine photographer Douglas Wood is the Deer Isle gallery’s featured artist.


Originally from Pennsylvania, Woods first came to Maine at age to visit his cousins who lived in Cape Elizabeth. That memorable summer exploring tidal pools and marveling at the Atlantic Ocean, led to more visits And eventually prompted the photographer to make it his permanent home.

“When I head out with my camera, I go it alone which is by choice. It’s a very personal, introspective process for me,” Woods writes on his website. “When I was 7, I shared my enthusiasm for what I was seeing by trying to drag as many people as I could over to my location. Today, I share these moments of joy and discovery through fine art prints but the idea is exactly the same now as it was in my youth.”

Douglas is known for his interpretation of themes ranging from the working waterfront, seascapes, landscapes and nautical subjects. Prints on display represent a variety of these themes that Douglas has made over the years, and the gallery is delighted to share this work with those of us who call Maine home, as well as our friends from ‘away.’”

“Maine in Black and White” will run from Sept. 10 through Oct. 14. An artist reception will be held at the gallery from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 15. The gallery is located at 117 Center District Crossroad in Deer Isle. For more info, call 712-7014, [email protected] visit kingmangallery.com.
