An award-winning member of the International Lamographic Society, Bedard best describes his work in a painting parallel, “Like a painter uses brushes and pallet, I create art using cameras, film and alternative processing.” Bedard will be the first photographer showcased as part of the #VerandArt Project- A Local Artist Outreach Program. The #VerandArt Project is an artistic collaboration between Clay Hill Farm and TaleSpinStudio in Ogunquit, bringing the love of art and food into experiential harmony.

Artist Amy Audet at Clay Hill Farm

 

Amy Audet has been a long-time lover of the outdoors in all types of weather. She was raised in Wakefield MA and is currently a permanent resident of Wells, Maine. “Nature has amazed me as long as I can remember, “said Audet, “I love that nature is momentary, and constantly changing.” Audet attempts to capture all the senses in her paintings- the feel, the smells, the sounds, the light and the color. Transforming her seasonal cottage to a year-round residence in 2013, Audet was able to spend more time on the estuary and the beach for painting inspiration. Working primarily with pastels on “sanded” surfaces and occasionally in oil paints, Audet has been experimenting with Plein air painting in studio, from moments captured in photos. While she enjoys typical meditation, there is nothing more quieting yet joyous to Audet than to be immersed in painting.
