Join us in Center Sandwich as the town celebrates the Sandwich Spring Festival on June 16. This day long event includes “something for everyone.” Don Mayer presents his delightful drawings at Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery. A runner and a resident, Mayer’s work takes us on a not quite precise tour of the town. Mayer’s sense of humor brings a laugh to all who follow his path through Downtown Sandwich, Uptown Sandwich and onto Suburban Sandwich. There will be a reception to meet Don Mayer from 5 to 7 p.m. at the gallery. Patricia Ladd Carega Gallery is located at 69 Maple Street in Center Sandwich. Gallery hours are from 10 to 5 Monday through Saturday and 12 to 5 on Sunday. For more information visit our website at www.patricialaddcarega.com or call 603 284 7728.
About 5 years ago Don Mayer decided he wanted to to draw. After buying, “burning through” and discarding a number of artistic supplies, Mayer settled on India ink and a fountain pen. Though he has had little art training, a course in Woodcut and Printmaking in college influenced this decision. He loved the the sharp black lines that the block created when printed on paper. Mayer’s art is “influenced by two rather disparate people: Stephen Huneck and Van Gogh.
A dog lover and owner of two black labs, the humor of Huneck’s dog loving prints were attractive to Mayer. From Van Gogh, Mayer learned that it’s okay to take a bit of license with perspective! Finally Mayer loves the outdoors and “the goofy fun of dogs” while he is running dirt roads and trails. Each of his drawings contains a canine commentator who might recite poetry or critique Mayer’s work “but is always there as a good-natured friend that reminds him to live in the moment and have fun with this new venture.”
