Wintergreen to feature local artist Sanipass in June
PRESQUE ISLE, Maine – Local artist Caitlin Sanipass is Wintergreen Art Center’s featured artist for the month of June. Her opening reception will be held on Friday, June 3, from 6 to 8 p.m. during Presque Isle’s First Friday Art Walk.
Sanipass is a self-taught, lifelong artist. “I have been creating since I can remember,” said Sanipass. “Over the last few years, I’ve been making custom tumblers. It’s fun and gives people a new way to carry around and enjoy my art.”
Sanipass also enjoys exploring new painting mediums that allow her to create more dimension in her art.
“Aside from custom tumblers and painting, my favorites include resin art and I’m still a huge fan of alcohol ink,” she said. “I combine them all sometimes to create some great pieces.”
Sanipass is currently experimenting with a new paint combining acrylic and alcohol ink to make the consistency of frosting.
“I like that it makes the painting pop and come to life off the canvas,” she said.
“We are really looking forward to having Caitlin back at Wintergreen,” said Dottie Hutchins, Wintergreen’s executive director. “I think people will enjoy the unique, new directions she is going with her art.”
Sanipass grew up in the southern Maine towns of Parsonsfield and South Hiram. She currently lives in Presque Isle with her husband and daughter.
The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
