BANGOR — Sullivan artist Philip Frey strives to stretch his limits as a painter. His efforts have been rewarded in the form of a fresh and diverse body of work on view through Dec. 31 at the University of Maine Museum of Art.

Located on Harlow Street, the museum’s show called “Parallels” features a wide variety of portraits, cityscapes and abstract compositions. Ever present in all the paintings is the artist’s expert use of a rich palette of color, deft brushstrokes and strong drawing skills.

“By design, the explorations in one series influence the other and vice versa,” Frey says in his artist’s statement.

Admission is free to the museum located at 40 Harlow St. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For more info, call 561-3350 and visit www.umma.umaine.edu.
