Every summer since 1954, Alex Katz has lived and painted in the nearby town of Lincolnville.  In addition to his signature figure paintings, much of his work has concentrated on the land- and seascape of this midcoast village.  In recent years in particular, Katz’s work has included lushly painted, subtly colored large-scale canvases intimately connected to the place he has called home for more than five decades. This exhibition focuses on Katz’s most recent works from his annual Lincolnville sojourn; all of the paintings are from the artist’s own collection.
