  Silent Auction Featured Artists

 The Artists listed below are part of the fundraiser for the restoration of the Wood Island Lighthouse boathouse and the preservation of the Fletcher Neck Preserve. The silent Auction will take place on August 9, during  the reception.


Margaret Gerding

Grounded in representation, Gerding’s work portrays a deep connection to solitude and the landscape. Along with paintings inspired by travel, her move to Kennebunkport in 2015 solidified her commitment to the landscape of Southern Maine. Capturing real moments in time, Gerding allows the viewer to experience the intimacy of nature. She works in the studio and plein-air, allowing for intense, direct observation.

Kathleen "Teen" Dancause

Kathleen (Teen) Dancause received her ‘Associate of the Ontario College of Art degree (AOCA) in Toronto in the late forties. An award-winning artist and founding member of the Cornwall Arts Development Committee, her work can be found in parts of Europe, the United States, and of course her homeland, Canada.

Kathleen arrived in Biddeford Pool in 1970. Her love for the rocky coast of Maine had her returning to BPool for well over 40 years. “Teen’s” paintings are most noted for capturing the essence of summertime in the Pool:  local landmarks, active summer scenes at the beach, the Annual Lobsterfest, Hattie's, Crawley's Lobster Pound, Goldthwaite's, the Good Humor truck, etc. - all of which are familiar scenes to those who love BPool as much as she did.
