On the Water


Abe Goodale spent the past dozen years working internationally as an artist and wilderness guide. He recently returned home to Maine to focus on work connected to the local waters he grew up on.

Following in the footsteps of his great-great-grandfather Charles Dana Gibson, Goodale focuses on portraiture and the representation of an era. He sees the arts as a platform to instigate change and preserve culture. He spent last fall on the water and then through the winter created watercolor representations. They are a tribute to the hardworking men and women who make their living along the coast and an industry that is thriving, yet fragile.
