Freeport Community Library – Meet the Author: Philip Frey

Philip Frey to Discuss Book Written About His Painting Career

Join us on Monday, November 4th for an Book Talk with nationally exhibiting artist Philip Frey! In the past twenty years, Frey has developed into one of Maine’s finest landscape painters. Known as a brilliant colorist, Frey paints Maine’s harbors and islands with a bold palette that captures the light and moods of his home state, from the streets of Ellsworth and Portland to Monhegan and Acadia National Park. This event will run 6:30-7:30PM at Freeport Community Library.

With essays by Daniel Kany and Carl Little, “Philip Frey: Here and Now” presents the first in-depth look at Frey’s body of work. An introduction by curator George Kinghorn highlights Frey’s remarkable ability to render complex motifs by way of dynamic planes of color, while Kany and Little place the artist in an art-historical context. Kany writes: “Frey’s art occupies the nexus between contemporary painting and brushy traditionalism. If there is a focus to this new direction in Maine painting, his art is it.”

This event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase at the event through Sherman’s Books and Stationery of Freeport. For questions or directions to the library, visit or call 865-3307.
