FA's Goldberg Gallery Presents A Collection of Acrylic Paintings by Jan Obenhaus

During September and October 2019, the Goldberg Gallery at Fryeburg Academy in Fryeburg, Maine is pleased to announce that it will host an acrylic painting exhibit, featuring the work of artist Jan Obenhaus. Obenhaus has painted for over 30 years, and for the last 19 years, she’s worked and lived in the state of Maine as an artist. “Every project for me is personal,” says Oberhaus. “[Each piece] takes a little part of me with it as I picture the piece hanging on someone’s wall, sitting on their table, or displaying in a place of honor in their homes."

Obenhaus’ work is mostly custom pieces, explicitly made for a person or family. “Most recently, I’ve been working on this body of work to exhibit,” continues Obenhaus. “These paintings have a focus on nature and light. And as a hiker, I am always inspired by the beauty that surrounds us.” Obenhaus cites the pictures taken by her husband Doug as the inspiration for much of her work.

Obenhaus lives in Androscoggin County with her husband Doug and two children. She spends time volunteering at a summer camp, teaching art to children of all ages, and painting backdrops for the drama department at Oak Hill High School (where her daughter attends school).
The Goldberg Gallery is open to the public and the hours are Sundays - 12:00-4:00 p.m. & 7:30-9:30 p.m.; Monday-Thursday-7:00-5:00 p.m. & 7:30-9:30 p.m.; Fridays 7-5 p.m.; closed Saturdays.
