Eric Green was recently interviewed by Jan Anders Nelson on his blog, Artist Interrupted. In an answer to the question by Nelsen, “Why do you do what you do?” Green says, “I suppose I was compelled because of being overwhelmed by the poetry of being alive. I wanted to show others what I felt and saw.”

Connie Hayes | Maine Thing Quarterly

Connie Hayes was recently interviewed in the Art of Maine issue of Maine Thing Quarterly. “When Connie Hayes says something is beautiful, it’s not just an observation. It’s a call to action. “My process is to be astonished first,” she explained. “When I’m astonished with the light, with the color, with the shape – the way the yellow is pulsating underneath something – that astonishment makes me itchy. My hands start to move. I’m grabbing for paper.”

Van Campens: When Art is a Family Affair

The Van Campen family was featured in the December issue of Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors in an article written by Ann Dodds Costello. Costello writes, “Is a child whose parents are successful artists inclined to become an artist, and when this happens, why does it happen? Is it genetic or the result of being raised by artists in a home full of art?” The article discusses Tim, Susan, and Greta Van Campen’s backgrounds, various artistic practices, and influences.
