HAYNES GALLERIES PRESENTS TIMELESS PLACES, THE LUMINOUS LANDSCAPES OF PETER POSKAS

Thomaston -

THOMASTON, Maine — Haynes Galleries is pleased to present “Timeless Places,” the luminous landscapes of contemporary American realist Peter Poskas. There will be an opening reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5, and the show will be on view through Aug. 31, at Haynes Galleries, 91 Main St. in Thomaston. Poskas will be on hand to discuss his work from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27. The event is free and open to the public.

Poskas’ canvases are an ode to rural living — gritty winter scenes in the farmlands of New England and the tranquility of a coastal Maine summer. However, the true star of these paintings is the light — gauzy and golden as the sun sets over Stonington, incandescent as the fog lifts over Monhegan Island, cold and sharp on a barren winter morning in Connecticut.
