Exhibit, sale also includes
works inspired by Slade

NORWAY — The Western Maine Art Group announces the exhibit and sale of paintings inspired by Duncan E. Slade, including a major original: “Early Spring Fore Street (1990)” by Slade himself, as part of this year’s Norway Arts Festival theme “Celebrating Duncan E. Slade.”

The exhibit will open with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m., Friday, June 2, at the Matolcsy Art Center, 480 Main St.

In addition to the Slade painting, artwork of local artists inspired by Duncan E. Slade will be sold by silent auction throughout the exhibit.  The exhibit will launch on First Friday and be open June 3 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., for bidding. The closing party and announcement of the winners will be Sunday, June 4 from 4 to 6 p.m. Also at the June 4 reception the winners of this year’s Western Maine Art Group’s Lajos Matolcsy Memorial Scholarship and two scholarships honoring Duncan E. Slade will be presented.

The Norway Arts Festival is grateful for the support of Slade’s family, including his son, Duncan W. Slade and his wife, Gayle J. Fraas, both artists from Edgecomb, and Slade’s daughter, social worker Diane Slade, of Napa, California. The family has donated the painting that will be auctioned to support both a $500 scholarship for an OHCHS senior to pursue arts education and the festival itself.

The Norway Arts Festival is sponsored by Western Maine Art Group and Norway Downtown.  More information at wwww.norwayartsfestival.org.
