Haynes Galleries Presents Masterful Portraits, Landscapes in “Burt Silverman: Painter of People & Places”

Thomaston -

THOMASTON, Maine — Haynes Galleries is pleased to present “Burt Silverman: Painter of People & Places,” a selection of figurative and landscape work  with an opening reception from 5-8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 19, and will be on view through Sept. 8, at Haynes Galleries, 91 Main St., in Thomaston. The event is free and open to the public.

Silverman, a native New Yorker, made his mark as a Realist in an art scene dominated by Abstract Expressionists. He got his start as an illustrator — his work has appeared in Time and The New Yorker — but years ago, he “fell in love with the landscape of the human face, where all the emotional states of life are to be found.” Portraiture became his passion, and he is one of the founders of the Portrait Society of America.
