Diana Young Solo Show
August 29 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC-5
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Sunday and Wednesday, repeating until September 4, 2021
Eastport Gallery will host a solo show by beloved Eastport artist Diana Young from August 22 to September 4.
Diana will be at the Eastport Gallery on Sunday, August 22 from 11:00am-5:00pm to answer questions about her art, her life and her love of Maine.
“People have asked me what kind of art I do. I tend toward line, direction and force.
“I focus on motion rather than a point or object and I prefer a dynamic interlocking of shapes to attempt three dimensional rendering.
“I use a locale as a point of departure not as a study in nature. I like to find the kernel of a place.
“I try to keep the excitement of the underlying drawing from being buried under the paint.
“What makes an artist? Doing art with enthusiasm for many years is the proof. What starts out looking strange becomes accepted as beautiful over time …
“Being an artist may be one part talent and nine parts desire.”
