BRUNSWICK — Bayview Gallery welcomes Maine painter Jon Allan Marshall to its roster of artists. The gallery at 58 Maine St. will open an exhibit of his paintings on Friday, Oct. 12, in conjunction with downtown Brunswick’s Second Friday Artwalk. The public is invited to meet the artist at a gallery reception that evening from 5 to 7:30 p.m.

On Saturday, Oct. 13, Marshall will present a painting demonstration and discussion of his techniques from 10:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. The demonstration and discussion are open to the public and free of charge.

Marshall describes himself in a news release as a “regional painter very conscious of his New England roots.” A graduate of the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, he spent time in Holland studying the works of 17th-century Dutch painters. His mastery of the art of landscape painting has been unfolding since he moved to Maine 18 years ago. Marshall lives in an area close to mountains where he regularly walks and from which he continuously receives inspiration. His work has been exhibited at galleries in New York, Boston and Portland.

Bayview Gallery has available parking and is wheelchair accessible via the rear entrance.
