Artist in the median drawing attention to art, Cape Elizabeth
By Kevin St. Jarre
Cape Elizabeth residents driving through the intersection of Ocean House Road and
Shore Road will see a visual and performance artist hard at work. Erin McGee Ferrell will spend the month of July painting from the median at the intersection. It’s
Ferrell’s ongoing solo show, presented by Ocean House Gallery & Frame, titled Erin
McGee Ferrell Paints Cape Elizabeth Live! Ferrell is a nationally shown artist, and
she is painting in the unlikely spot for several reasons. “I want to bring art to the public,
rather than always asking the public to go to a gallery,” Ferrell said. Still, another aim of
the show is to recognize Ocean House Gallery as a Cape Elizabeth business representing established contemporary Maine artists.“Graham Wood, the owner of Ocean
House, is a fabulous artist,” Ferrell said, “and the combination of working career artist
and gallery owner is unique and should be appreciated. At times, Graham and I will be
out painting in the median together.”Wood said, “The paintings will hang in
the gallery while she works so people can see them develop as she paints.”
The public is invited to come out to the median and talk to Ferrell. “Please stop by
and watch her work, chat with her or pull up an easel and paint with her!” Wood said.
“We are hoping people will catch a glimpse of the creative activity going on in Cape.”
Ferrell said, “I know artists who come from out of state and drive all the way to
Acadia. I’m hoping more artists will realize that Cape Elizabeth has a lot to offer, and
they can save themselves the additional 3-hour drive.” She said Cape Elizabeth
should be “recognized as an artist painting destination.”
She said she’s also interested in the public’s reaction to her show on one of the busiest
intersections in Cape Elizabeth. “How do perceptions of the corner change when
live artists are out painting in the median? Will the public begin to look for the artists?
Will the corner become part of a tourism route?”
Ferrell said she looked forward to participating
in Cape Elizabeth Land Trust’s 2016 Paint for Preservation last weekend, noting
it would provide added exposure for me as a “relatively new Maine artist” coming from
Philadelphia. In fact, 31 artists were scheduled to participate
in the 9th annual Paint for Preservation event and its Wet Paint Auction and
reception held July 10. During the weekend of the event, selected artists painted en plein
air at designated public and private locations chosen to highlight Cape Elizabeth’s
natural beauty. A live auction and cocktail reception was
held and the newly painted pieces were sold in competitive bidding for the unique and
beautiful depictions of the natural world. The proceeds benefi t the Cape Elizabeth
Land Trust’s initiative, Saving Cape’s Great Places, to permanently preserve local strategic conservation land. At the conclusion of Ferrell’s solo show,
Ocean House Gallery will host a reception for her on Friday, July 22, from 5 to 8 p.m..
Wood said, “People can come see the completed work!”
