Galerie Dufour in downtown Belfast is proud to host Primavera: The Maine Fine Art Figure Exhibition. The show features modern interpretations of the nude, the classic genre in art, by Maine artists. Fine art nude drawings, photographs, paintings, and mixed media will be featured in what promises to be a memorable exhibit.

Award winning Maine artists David Estey and Charles Laurier Dufour juried the entries and were impressed with the sheer variety of interpretations. “When you leave it to the artists to interpret ‘the nude’ as they envision it rather than simply to how commercial and social convention does,” explains Dufour, “then individual styles dictate the outcome and you end up with quite an interesting, varied, and impressive collection of works.”

Galerie Dufour will host an opening reception for the public on Saturday, May 4, between 5:00 and 8:00 pm. Award winning artworks will be announced at approximately 6:30 pm. Cash sponsors of the art awards are Delvino’s Grill and Pasta House, Three Tides and Marshall Wharf Brewing Co., Yo Mamma’s Home, Easterly Wine, and Galerie Dufour. Tell your friends and don’t miss this show which kicks off Galerie Dufour’s 10th season in Belfast!

Primavera will be exhibited at Galerie Dufour through the month of May. Contact the gallery for days, times, and other information. Galerie Dufour is located at 94 Main Street in Belfast, (207) 338 – 6448 or GalerieDufour@gmail.com.
