A year round resident of South Bristol, Maine, Sally Loughridge is continually intrigued and inspired by the rugged, organic beauty around her.
Sally is drawn to the juxtaposition of natural elements – sky, sea, and land – and the rich contrasts in color, value, texture, and temperature such intersections bring. She also enjoys the challenge of depicting a striking vantage point or a sudden shift in weather.
Sally works primarily in the soft pastel and oil mediums. She has been teaching soft pastel painting, both in the studio and en plein air, for over twelve years.
The process of painting is both humbling and deeply satisfying. Painting and sight have become reciprocally entwined, with each enhancing the other. The fuller her engagement in the action of creating, the more energized and connected she feels to the world.
In turn, she hopes to engage the viewer by stirring memory, emotion, and curiosity.
Sally’s work can also be seen at Pemaquid Art Gallery in New Harbor, Tidemark Gallery in Waldoboro, and Mast Cove Galleries in Kennebunkport, as well as in invitational shows in MidCoast and Southern Maine.
