OGUNQUIT, ME.- The Ogunquit Museum of American Art opened new exhibitions including rarely seen works by major 20th century American artists Will Barnet and John Marin, as well as an installation by Maine visual artist Dozier Bell.

Will Barnet: Family Homage offers a look at rarely exhibited paintings drawn from the artist’s most personal body of work, those retained by his family and for a foundation created in his name. A giant in the history of American art, Barnet is widely associated with the most prominent figures in painting spanning several generations and movements, from Stuart Davis and Yasuo Kuniyoshi to James Rosenquist and Cy Twombly. Entwining figurative and abstract elements with personal and universal themes, Barnet’s artistic practice charts an extraordinary progression through a lifetime of work.

John Marin: On the Verge of Wilderness features twenty-five seldom seen paintings made during Marin’s time along the coast and captures his sense of reverence for the natural forces at play in what he described as “on the verge of wilderness.” Marin arrived in Maine in August, 1914 and spent the next four decades finding inspiration in the tides, weather, horizons, and experiences throughout the landscapes of Maine. This exhibition presents a journey through the artist’s iconic watercolors and one of the most compelling chapters in the history of American painting.

Dozier Bell: Land, Sea and Sky features an installation of ethereal compositions that transcend time and belie their scale. A remarkable painter living and working in Maine, Dozier Bell composes environments both unsettling and sublime, recalling ambitious landscape traditions of the 19th and early 20th century. Born in Lewiston, Maine, Bell has exhibited extensively, and has been recognized with multiple Pollack-Krasner Foundation grants, a grant from the Adolph and Esther Gottleib Foundation, and a Purchase Prize award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
