Diane Bowie Zaitlin

December 3, 2016 - February 3, 2017

​Diane Bowie Zaitlin’s mixed media and encaustic paintings reveal her fascination  with the power of color, sensuality of surface, and use of a veiled narrative.  Her imagery often refers to memory, choices, searching, and  relationships, with a hint of landscape.  She is especially attracted to  the luminosity, depth, and fluidity of encaustic that allows a natural  combination of painting and collage. 

Diane has exhibited extensively including group shows at Cheryl Pelavin Fine Arts, New York City; The Art Complex Museum, Duxbury, Mass.; Saco Museum, Saco, Maine; ArtSpace Gallery, Maynard, Mass.; Carver Hill Gallery, Rockland, Maine; Flat Iron Gallery, Portland, Maine; Leighton Gallery, Blue Hill, Maine; Elan Fine Arts, Rockland, Maine; Greenhut Galleries, Portland, Maine; George Marshall Store Gallery, York, Maine; Brian Marki Gallery, Portland,  Oregon; Redhouse Gallery, Dubuque, Iowa; Silvermine Guild Arts Center, New Canaan, Conn.; Charter Oak Temple Gallery, Hartford, Conn.; and Slater Museum, Norwich, Conn. 

She received a B.F.A. from the University of Connecticut and also studied at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York.  She has studied at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and Maine College of Art.  Diane has been an artist-in-residence at schools and museums with the Maine Touring Artist Program of the Maine Arts Commission for over twenty years.  She currently teaches small independent encaustic workshops at her studio in Saco, Maine.
