Jonathan Frost Gallery and Frame Shop
Jonathan Frost, proprietor and master framer
On Friday evening, July 3, from 5:00 to 8:00, the Jonathan Frost Gallery will host the opening reception for a show titled Harriett Matthews: Greek Land, Greek Sky. The show will include seven bronze sculptures evoking the Greek landscape and sky, eleven bronze reliefs, several smaller bronze pieces, and eight graphite drawings.
The public will have two chances to meet the artist and ask her questions about her work: first at the opening and later at a “Conversation with the Artist” scheduled for Tuesday, July 14, at 4:00 p.m.
Matthews retired last year from her long tenure at Colby College. She’d started there in 1966, founding the school’s sculpture program. In the course of her career as an artist and professor she has made many trips, including a couple of year-long sabbaticals, to the eastern Mediterranean, most often to Greece. Her fascination with Greek and Byzantine art, and with the Greek landscape, began while she was a graduate student at the University of Georgia, studying under Byzantine scholar Ljubica Popovich.
Matthews has had solo shows at Bates College, the University of Southern Maine, the Portland Museum of Art, the June Fitzpatrick Gallery in Portland, the University of Georgia, and the Colby College Museum of Art.
The show will be up through August 4. The Jonathan Frost Gallery is located at the corner of Main Street and Park Drive in Rockland. The telephone number is 207-596-0800. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 to 5:00.
