"Looking Back”— A Collection of Oil Paintings by Sandra J. Bell

During September and October 2018, the Goldberg Gallery at Fryeburg Academy in Fryeburg, Maine is pleased to announce that it will host a collection of oil paintings, featuring the work of artist Sandra J. Bell. Bell—a paint en plein air and representational oil painter —was raised in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio and was exposed to the arts at an early age. She attended college and art school for a period of time before moving to Wellesley, Massachusetts.  In 1998, Bell settled in Center Lovell, Maine, where she enjoys painting in her studio.

Often seeking out the unusual in her travels, Bell’s current works are primarily representational oil paintings with a spirit of spontaneity and intimacy. She often begins with her own photography, which Bell uses as a reference to create paintings in a variety of styles and subject matters such as lake scenes, landscapes, coastal subjects, villages, backcountry life, as well as still life and portraits.

Bell has also shown her work at the Harvest Gold Gallery in Lovell and the Main Street Gallery in Norway, Maine. To learn more about the artist, please visit her website at
