New Crow, Work in Progress, Charcoal, 12 x 18 inches

This piece is in progress. I need to get a better image as I snapped this at night in the studio with my iPod. I’m using Wolff’s Carbon pencils on this piece and am enjoying the change in media. I am to give a gallery talk Wednesday night at the Gilley Museum in Southwest Harbor, Maine. Writing furiously and choosing images…

Vile Calumny! (Actually, a very nice article…)

Articles ran in the Bangor Daily News and the Mount Desert Islander today. They describe my current exhibition at the Wendell Gilley Museum in Southwest Harbor, Maine and announce that I’ll be giving a gallery talk at the Gilley on Wednesday the 21st.

“Mr. Pollien’s gallery talk, at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 21, is open to the public. Admission is also free on this date, Wendell Gilley’s birthday.”
