Two talented Maine women are currently exhibiting at Moss Galleries, Route One. Falmouth.  And both of them live in southern Maine to boot.

The larger of the two exhibits are the paintings of Torrie Darcy.  A many year exhibitor at Moss, Darcy usually paints coastal scenes and landscapes.  But the current exhibit that runs until January 7, 2023 is a shift in focus.

“This exhibit represents a shift in what Darcy has shown here.  She has shifted from landscapes to figures,” said Megan Cameron, Registrar at Moss Galleries. “She is ever evolving as an artist.  She experiments with different mediums and subjects in contrast to some other artists who prefer consistency.”

For this blogger, her paintings are reminiscent of the paintings of Mary Cassatt.  Cassatt was an American artist who lived much of her life in France where she exhibited with Edgar Degas.  She was born in 1844 and died in 1926 in France.

“I like to paint animals,” said painter Cameron, 31, this afternoon at Moss Galleries, Falmouth.  Cameron grew up on a family farm in Dover-Foxcraft. It was a farm that belonged to her grandfather, Bert Boone.  His horses were used for logging in the nearby woods which were turned into lumber at his saw mill.  The real deal.

Between September – October Cameron had an exhibition of her own work at Moss.  It was a show of fourteen paintings – selling six of them.  She is largely a self-taught artist, although she  studied at the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts, Connecticut, briefly.  She shows her work at Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado as well.

Moss Galleries will be open on Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, November 25.  So if you have the day off from work and are looking for a very worth while exhibit for those out of town guests, put Moss Galleries at the top of your to do list.  You  will be SO glad you did!

Moss Galleries was established in 2004 with a focus on Maine artists and was recently named one of the top 500 Galleries in North America by ArtIno.
