Lost Landscapes by Charles Thompson
April 13 through June 30
Opening reception Friday, April 13, 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Lost Landscapes features the plein air paintings of University of New England Professor of Art Charles Thompson. Thompson paints entirely from life, beginning and completing each painting on location. The places he paints tend to go unnoticed by most people. By capturing these seemingly ordinary places with passion and vigor, he hopes to transform these scenes into extraordinary and sensitive images for others to share in his celebration.
