Artist James Kucheman is showing his work at the Maine Audubon Visitor’s Center, 20 Gilsland Farm Road in Falmouth, through Dec. 31.

Kucheman is a well-known landscape painter from Gorham who found inspiration while walking through the Gilsland Farm sanctuary. He used to take breaks there during his years working as a mail carrier in Portland and Westbrook.

He retired from the Postal Service in 2014 and now devotes himself to his art. He frequently visits Vinalhaven, where he is inspired by Tidal Basin, Fox Island Thoroughfare, Lane’s Island Nature Conservancy, Hurricane Sound and working waterfront scenes.

“It is rewarding when the balance of effort, technique and creative editing come together to capture a sense of place,” said Kucheman in a press release. “My technical approach is evolving as I regain confidence to meet the challenges of painting. I feel renewed enthusiasm for creating art that might speak to others as it does to me.”

His paintings on display include pieces from Gilsland Farm meadows and locations at Vinalhaven.

In his early years, he worked as an art instructor at the University of Southern Maine in Gorham and at the University of Maine at Fort Kent. His paintings have been displayed in galleries across Maine. His work was also included in several national-level juried shows

The visitor’s center is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For more information, call 781-2330.
