THOMASTON, Maine â€” Haynes Galleries is pleased to present â€śBurt Silverman: Painter of People & Places,â€ť a selection of figurative and landscape workÂ 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 â€” his work has appeared in Time and The New Yorker â€” but years ago, he â€śfell in love with the landscape of the human face, where all the emotional states of life are to be found.â€ť Portraiture became his passion, and he is one of the founders of the Portrait Society of America.
