Artist of the Month

Cynthia R. Burmeister has been chosen as the Maine Street Gallery’s Artist of the Month. A burmeister2selection of her work will be on display at the gallery through February.

Cynthia lives in Paris and is an active member of the Western Maine Art Group. She studied watercolor with the Ann Arbor Art Association and served as a Docent at the University of Michigan Museum of Art for twenty years. More recently she has studied oil painting.

Cynthia describes her approach “I have always loved old houses, so I suppose it’s not surprising that they are my favorite subject to paint. Old buildings are interestting visually and I enjoy thinking about the people who lived in them and created what I see. Norway, Paris, and western Maine have so many wonderful examples of old builidings. When interesting architecture comes to together with interesting light situations, I’m off!”
