Featured Artist… Peter Poskas!

“Evening, Rockwell Kent House” by Peter Poskas – Image: Haynes Gallery

This certainly is a nice little painting of the Rockwell Kent House, at Lobster Cove on Monhegan Island, Maine…. Lovely rendition for sure. The warm light, the water and sky how they so closely come together… Peter has some wonderful paintings, many of Monhegan for those of you for an affinity for the island… hard to choose just one! Take a peek!

Stay tuned for a future post about Jamie Wyeth, Rockwell Kent and Monhegan… Jamie Wyeth was an admirer of Rockwell Kent’s paintings, he purchased his house at Lobster Cove as well as a few paintings. Can you imagine? The house is a beauty!

Here’s a blip about the artist from the Haynes Gallery website:

Peter Poskas

American, Born 1939

Prominent 21th Century American landscape artist Peter Poskas has been painting New England farms for more than three decades. While his earliest pieces were reminiscent of Edward Hopper’s style, inspiration for his current work evolved when he move to Washington, Connecticut, where he began painting the farm of his elderly neighbor, Emily Uranus. While the farms depicted in his paintings have changed over the years, his thoughtful studies of light and perspective that reflect the subtle nuances of seasonal change remain a constant subject of his work.

Poskas has enjoyed a successful career as an artist and continues to exhibit his work throughout the United States. His much sought-after paintings have been collected both privately and publicly, including such important institutions as the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, the Mattatuck Museum in Connecticut, the Mint Museum in North Carolina, and the Rahr West Museum in Wisconsin.

Catch you back here tomorrow!

  1. Hi Barbara,

    I’m trying to get in touch with Peter Poskas. Do you have his contact information? I’m opening a gallery in Portland Maine and would love his work to bless my walls. This is a beautiful painting filled with his incredible light.
