Examples of Philip Barter’s bold, primitive images of Maine may be seen at Lincolnville Fine Art Gallery, 2522 Atlantic Hightway/Route 1 at Lincolnville Beach.

Barter was born in Boothbay Harbor in 1939 and studied with Spanish abstract expressionist Alfonso Sosa in California in the 1960s, as well as with Fritz Rockwell after returning to Maine. He was influenced by both mentors’ use of bold form and color. Since the 1960s, his work has been shown in major museums and collections worldwide.

The gallery is open daily from  11 a.m. to 6 p.m. or by appointment; call 789-5000 or visit lincolnvillefineartgallery.com.
