Dwight Gagnon

Dwight Gagnon is exhibiting his artwork during March. He considers himself an amateur artist, creating for family and friends, and entering local fair exhibits. “I use art as social connection and a way of maintaining sanity. My current studio is a temporary arrangement near a wood stove in the basement of my home. I work mostly in the winter, and I’m most productive when there is a raging snowstorm outside, the stove is burning, the cat is sleeping close by, and there is good music on the radio.” Growing good healthy food at home, conservation, and  appreciation of all forms of art have been life long pursuits due to his education in environmental science and the connections he has made through Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, Natural Resources Council of Maine, The Colby Museum of Art, The Farnsworth Art Museum, and the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators. He lives in Benton Falls, Maine, with his wife, Kay, and cat, Sophie. You might recognize his chicken artwork as it was featured on 2017 Common Ground Fair poster.
