Canadian Artist Inspired by Cape Beaches

Above: Aw Shucks II, oil, by SaraJane Doberstein, 16 x 20, framed 17.5 x 21.5

Although Canadian artist SaraJane Doberstein lives in Owen Sound, Ontario Bay, she spends a great deal of time in the United States, including on Cape Cod, where she finds inspiration for her vivid paintings of seashells, shorebirds, crabs and oysters. At a young age, Doberstein developed a passion for capturing the American coastline during family trips along the East Coast. Her painting style ranges from traditional representational to contemporary realism, and her work reflects a fascination with the natural world.

On June 9, Doberstein and Truro artist Amy Sanders will join the Addison Art Gallery in support of Wild Care in Eastham. The event, “Swooping in for Wild Care,” will include an exhibit of new works by gallery and invited artists. Two Eastern screech owls and an Eastern box turtle will also be on hand. Watch Doberstein and Sanders demonstrate unique painting techniques from 3-4:30 p.m., followed by a reception from 5-7 p.m., which includes a book signing and raffle. Tickets for the “Swooping in for Wild Care” raffle will be available at the Addison Art Gallery and at Wild Care starting June 1.

Addison Art Gallery, 43 South Orleans Road (Route 28), Orleans, 508-255-6200
