Opening this week at Haynes Galleries in Thomaston, Maine, is a new exhibit which exemplifies the gallery's dedication to contemporary American Representational Art.  Four Figurative Artists, features the works of Ellen Cooper, Ryan S. Brown, Renee Foulks, and Lea Colie Wight, four artists of differing perspectives and backgrounds, brought together to showcase some of the best work created within the genre.  According to gallery owner Gary R. Haynes, “These artists are dedicated to the revival of realist art in America. They are award-winning artists who are committed to teaching their philosophy and craft to a new generation of contemporary realists, and they are producing some of the most exciting work being done anywhere.”  The show opens with a public reception on August 3rd from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, and will run through the 28th of the month.  

Haynes Galleries, founded in Nashville, Tennessee, opened their newer, Northeast location two summers ago.   Housed in the former home of the 19th century sea captain John Singer, and situated in the heart of coastal Wyeth country, Haynes Galleries is part of Mr. Haynes' continuing vision of creating private, full-service art galleries specializing in American Realism.  In addition to showcasing some of today's most talented Representational artists, Haynes Galleries also offers works from the past two centuries, including paintings by John Singer Sargent, William McGregor Paxton, and three generations of the legendary Wyeths.  

The gallery is located at 91 Main Street, Thomaston, Maine, 04861, and is open from 11:00 AM- 4:00 PM, Tuesday-Saturday, or by appointment. For more information about this exhibit, or to schedule a private viewing, call 207-354-0685 or 615-430-8147.  Additional information can also be found by visiting  their website, HAYNESGALLERIES.COM.
