May Art Show: John Knight - Acrylic Paintings

Please join us for a free reception on Tuesday, May 6th, 2014 at 6:30pm Refreshments will be provided, and the artist will answer questions. We hope to see you there! The art will remain on display for the month of May.

"John W. Knight was raised in Cape Neddick, ME where he was first introduced to the beauty of the great outdoors. His father is a lobsterman, so it naturally follows that John has a great love and respect for the ocean.  John has always had a passion for art and science, so when he went to school at the University of Maine, he majored in biology and studio art.  His most recent endeavor was owning and running a successful cafe, "Four Mile Lobster” in Cape Neddick.  John has a creative mind that is always thinking of clever ways to solve problems and different ways of looking at the world.  As you can see in his art, he is greatly inspired by the outdoors which he sees as God’s creation. John still lives in Cape Neddick, where he is a loving husband to his wife Tessa, and father to their dog Gus." -bio by Tessa Knight
