George Carpenter’s Works on display

by

The Beth Ellis Cove Gallery in Perkins Cove is currently featuring the works of the late George Carpenter. This exhibit, which includes several drawings and a series of watercolors, which have never before been shown, is on view through October 15th.

George Carpenter was a master impressionist whose work in oil and watercolor paintings reflected his love of the sea and New England. He and his wife Virginia moved to Ogunquit in 1963 where he opened his gallery across from the footbridge in Perkins Cove in 1983. At this location he became known as “the mayor of Perkins Cove.”

Carpenter dies on June 18, 2006, while painting in his gallery at Perkins Cove. His classic Rockport style has been admired and collected by many over the years. The Beth Ellis Cove Gallery is open daily. For more information, call 207-646-7700.

    You could try The Beth Ellis Cove Gallery. She is more likely to know…or to be able to refer you to someone who could help you.
