AUGUSTA — The artwork of Alexandra Tyng and James Dodds is displayed in Maine’s Capitol Complex as part of the Maine Arts Commission’s Arts in the Capitol program.

The exhibition is on loan from the Dowling Walsh Gallery in Rockland, and will remain on display until February. The work is viewable from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at the State House, and from 2 to 4 p.m. Tuesdays to Thursdays at the Blaine House. People who want to see the work at the Blaine House should call ahead at 287-2121.

Tyng began drawing and painting the Maine landscape as a teenager while staying at a 19th-century camp at Mount Desert and at a lighthouse home on Penobscot Bay. In the 1990s, she began chartering planes to take reference photos of the glacially carved land formations of coastal Maine, which she used as references to create large-scale paintings. She also painted panoramas from mountaintops and intimate views of specific places.

Dodds was born in the fishing town Brightlingsea, which is nestled on the east coast of England. He trained as a shipwright in the nearby town of Maldon before moving to London to study painting at both the Chelsea School of Art and the Royal College of Art in London.

A frequent visitor to Maine, Dodds has exhibited his paintings and prints of boats throughout England and in Maine.
