Reception: Saturday, 22 October, 6-8pm
For nearly 30 years, Mark Andres painted and drew what he terms “observational paintings from the landscape and the model,” characterized by an unerring color sense and impeccable compositions. More recently, though, Andres has been combining imagery in paintings that suggest a narrative flow, although not a linear one, because, as he notes, past, present, and future often collide in these works. Andres, who studied at the Art Institute of Boston and the University of Massachusetts, has taught at Portland Community College since 1991.
