For All Artists & Pilgrims

Celebrating Earth through the Visual Arts

Oranbega Celebrates Earth with a Zoom Earth Day program focusing on artists building environmental awareness through their work

Join your friends at Oranbega Retreat Center for our Earth Day Celebration of the Arts and the Earth. Featuring our own Resident Painter, Robert Phipps, whose paintings are deeply influenced by his love and care for the planet. The night explores two series from Robert’s career, and will feature an exploration of his work but a chance to converse and ask him questions about his work.

We also proudly feature the work of David G. Allen, an environmental sculptor and stone worker. Based in Sebago, Maine, David possesses a growing a national reputation as a “Rock Star” in the world of environmental art. His unique installations fascinate the viewer with their kinetic and structural ingenuity, which nevertheless respects the intrinsic nature of the stone or other materials (ice, for instance!)

Our third presenter is Val Kells, a science illustrator with Maine ties now working in Florida. Her incredibly detailed, accurate, and beautiful illustration of fish, amphibians, and underwater ecologies are used in museums and text books to teach children and adults about the diversity and wonder of marine life on our planet. She will present some of her recent projects and talk about the important connections between art and science as we strive to understand and preserve the underwater and coastal environment. You can preview her work at https://www.valkellsillustration.com/
