Maine has a centuries old history of attracting artists captivated by the state’s natural beauty and the quiet ethos of her hard-working inhabitants. Over a period of many decades, nationally-renowned photographer George Tice and artist Andrew Wyeth were drawn to Maine, inspired by the state’s past, and a present that speaks to a sense of timelessness and the enduring qualities of honor and dignity in an honest days’ work. Through familiar scenes of the ordinary and everyday, Tice’s and Wyeth’s works are a testament to the essential connectedness of people to their environment that offers the viewer an intimate glimpse into their prospective worlds. George Tice and Andrew Wyeth: Parallel Visions, the first exhibition to show Tice’s Maine work in the place that inspired it and the first to pair the two artists together, explores the unique vision of each artist through their depictions of those evocative parallel worlds that capture both the myth of Maine and the reality its residents call home.
