Harbor's Dream — photo-art-works by Olga Merrill at Sweethaven Gallery

 

 
 
MYSTIC VISION is a collection of photo-art works by Olga Merrill. She uses photography as a tool – like an instrument to make music or a brush for painting – to create an image of her vision, with a dreamy and indirect relationship to external reality.
“It's moody. It’s peaceful. It’s twilight. The fishermen have gone home. The lobsters are gone. Everything is gone. I think about boats as something alive. It’s their time for rest. Work is done. It's quiet. This sanctuary is for the boats, and it lets the fishermen head off to sanctuaries of their own.”
 
“Harbor’s Dream" - by Olga Merrill - 12x18 image on 17x22 sheet - limited edition print #1/5 - archival pigment print on Hahnemühle Museum Etching paper – $400.00.

"Getting Close" – photo-art-work by Olga Merrill at Sweethaven Gallery

 




MYSTIC VISION is a collection of photo-art works by Olga Merrill. She uses photography as a tool – like an instrument to make music or a brush for painting – to create an image of her vision, with a dreamy and indirect relationship to external reality.

Getting Close is one of my painterly, mysterious artworks that encourages the audience to bring imagination. The words of Eleanor Roosevelt come to mind when I look at this work: "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."

3 sizes available - open edition print - archival pigment print on Epson Enhanced Matte paper.

This show will be on view through January 9th, 2022.

"Golden Touch" by Olga Merrill at Sweethaven Gallery

 

 
 
MYSTIC VISION is a collection of photo-art works by Olga Merrill. She uses photography as a tool – like an instrument to make music or a brush for painting – to create an image of her vision, with a dreamy and indirect relationship to external reality.

"Golden Touch" - 20x30 image on 24x34 sheet - open edition print - archival pigment print on Canson Infinity Rag Photographique paper.

Also available in additional sizes. Please contact the gallery for details.

"It has been more than eight years since I first set foot in Maine, just before a magical Christmas. Harpswell, where I made "Golden Touch" was one of the first places where I started to know Maine: fresh cold water, salty smells and the light reflecting on the water touched me and brought back childhood memories. This place still is one of my spots for contemplation. I love escaping to the rocky shore, watching the sunset while listening to the sounds of waves as the day goes into night, into dreams".

MYSTIC VISION – Photography by Olga Merrill at Sweethaven Gallery

 


Harbor's Secret


MYSTIC VISION is a collection of photo-art works by Olga Merrill. She uses photography as a tool – like an instrument to make music or a brush for painting – to create an image of her vision, with a dreamy and indirect relationship to external reality.
Some images are essentially representative photography of the world around her that nevertheless dissolve into the wonder of abstract patterns, while others are complex manipulations of the ordinary visual world that use intentional camera movement, multiple exposures, and well planned color palettes to reflect her vision, dreams and feelings.
Merrill’s work has been part of group shows and festivals nationally and internationally, including NYC Center of Photography (USA) and Blank Wall Gallery, (Greece). YourDailyPhotograph.com just announced the selection of Brunswick, Maine artist Olga Merrill to the “YourDailyPhotograph.com Hot 100 of 2021” list for her photographic work, including her image "One and Many", which is part of her show, MYSTIC VISION. Merrill beat 4,500 artists from around the world to take home the prestigious honor.
This show will be on view December 1st through January 9th, 2022.
Opening reception December 4th, 1 - 5pm.
Light refreshments will be served.

IN MY TRAVELS – "One Blood" — Photography by Greg Nikas

 


One Blood — Jamaica


 IN MY TRAVELS is a collection of photographs by Greg Nikas that puts a smile on his face and brings back fond memories of the trips he was on when they were taken. 

“One Blood" was taken in Jamaica while on a stock shoot. Every city and town I went to had open markets that had displays like this, but only one had hats and belts displayed like this, and for me, that was the shot!  Luckily, I had a board of tourism driver who took me anywhere I wanted to go plus places he said I just had to see. And because lunch was always on me, he took me to the best local places to eat where I rarely saw any tourists. It was a great week, and I can remember almost every minute of it.

Greg’s work can be viewed at: sweethavengallery.com

ONLY 5 MORE DAYS!

This show will be on view through November 28th.

IN MY TRAVELS — "Cayman Clouds" – Photography by Greg Nikas at Sweethaven Gallery

 



IN MY TRAVELS is a collection of photographs by Greg Nikas that puts a smile on his face and brings back fond memories of the trips he was on when they were taken.

“Cayman Clouds" was taken on Cayman Brac the first night we arrived. When we got to our condo, we saw a long boardwalk going out over the water to a gazebo like structure that gave us a great view of the coastline. As the sun was setting, the clouds formed and the suns rays illuminated their edges. It happened very fast and was gone in minutes. So what’s the moral of the story? Keep your camera handy, or you will miss that shot! I’m really glad now that I made the decision to put the camera on my shoulder.
