NORWAY — Beginning Friday, June 18, artist Michael Everett is set to exhibit a collection of small landscape paintings at the Western Maine Art Group’s Matolcsy Art Center, 480 Main St.

“Condensed Looks: Big Land, Small Landscapes” is the show’s theme.

Everett took up oil painting to capture his impressions of the remote places of northern Maine. Many of his paintings are scenes from the Allagash and Saint John Rivers.

As his interest and skill have progressed, he has become more intrigued with the simple enjoyment of painting, especially in seeking vitality in his use of color.

He paints, mostly landscapes of mostly familiar places, and often can be found painting outdoors in his North Auburn neighborhood.

The exhibit will be open from noon to 4 p.m. Friday through Sunday, June 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 27.
