Works on Paper 2011 opens on Monday November 7 at the Gallery Hair Studio and Spa at 10 Main Street in Topsham and will remain on display through December 31st.  Gallery Hair is located on Main Street diagonally across from the Bowdoin Mill and just over the Frank Wood Memorial Bridge, a short walk from Maine Street Brunswick.  Ever since Ruth Reglin and her talented colleagues opened Gallery Hair, their intent has been to showcase the work of local artists.  I am delighted to be showing my art work on their lovely walls for the months of November and December.

The works of art in this show are a varied assortment of recent works on paper.  Paper is a lightweight and flexible support for painting, drawing, collage, and printmaking.  You will see examples of all of these varied processes in the pieces on display.  I have enjoyed working in plein air (Yellow Mill by the River) as well as in the studio ( to develop a variety of images in response to the landscape, both external and internal.  Works such as Memory Purse speak more to the internal landscape and how we form associations with objects that can trigger powerful memories while the woods series is my response to the experience of being in the filtered light of the pine woods.

Please contact me if you would like a private tour of the exhibit or if you would like more information about any of the works on display.  You may reach me by email at

All the best,

Robin Brooks
