Neil Welliver is dedicated to preserving the beauty of the Maine landscape, as well as capturing it on canvas. Today, many citizens are raising their voices to defend the natural glory of our country from urban sprawl. Few have been as eloquent as Welliver, who speaks in the vivid and expressive language of his unique visual art. His paintings invite an appreciation of the countryside through the eyes of an artist and explorer, and his work is an inspiration to all who wish to turn our nation's natural heritage into a cultural legacy.

The exhibition will debut a new print by Welliver titled Synthetic Blue St. John. The print focuses on the environment of the St. John's River in the Allagash region of Maine, which has been of particular interest to the artist for many years. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this print benefits a campaign conducted under the auspices of The Nature Conservancy to preserve this wilderness area for generations to come.
