Maine Coast Sojourn
Painting a Legacy of Land Conservation
“Lives and works on the Maine coast”—that’s a phrase often found in a Mainer’s bio. But in the case of painter Timothy P. Wilson, it’s quite literally true. Over two years Timothy traveled to Maine Coast Heritage Trust preserves up and down the coast, painting in all seasons, in all kinds of weather, and all for a cause: the ongoing effort to conserve the Maine coast and keep it open to all.
Maine Coast Sojourn is on exhibit at Cove Street Arts, 71 Cove Street, in Portland from September 16 through December 13.

“What I realized was it was important to me to act as a land steward, I felt needed to promote this experience of conservation; to show that this experience of painting in the landscape is made possible because people are taking care of the land and preserving things. It was really important for me to do something positive.”
