Eric Ebbeson graduated from Dartmouth College with a degree in Studio Art in 1968. He has exhibited in many art galleries and art shows in New England for the last 50 years and works in many media, including serigraphs, watercolors, acrylics, pen and ink, calligraphy, and alcohol ink. Sometimes he combines these media in creative and unusual ways. His work ranges from realistic and figurative to abstract and unusual. He frequently combines art and letterforms, and has created a very successful series of prints and notecards combining both. He has been an art educator, teaching art at all levels. He has taught art at The Darrow School (New Lebanon, NY), the Hampton Academy, the Brush and Palette (North Hampton, NH) and led several drawing groups. He has also illustrated two books, “The Ambiguity of Autumn,” a book of poetry by Jeff Volk and “Luna and Floyd Visit their Grandparents,” a children’s book by Lauren Levine. During the pandemic he participated in “The Sketchbook Project,” a compendium of artists’ sketchbooks put online and also exhibited at the Brooklyn Art Library. Of his artistic process, Eric shares:

“Like countless other artists before me, I am influenced by the Natural World around me. Creating art is a meditative experience for me. I do not keep to a single ‘style’ when I create my work, but rather use the style to fit the subject. I am particularly drawn to the ‘edges’ of things-the coast, rivers, mountains, twilight, dusk, dawn.”

A portion of the proceeds from each art sale will be donated to York Hospital. You may view a price list here.

The hospital’s online gallery first opened in April, 2021 as a way to reach beyond COVID-19 restrictions that prevented visitors from coming in to the York Hospital Dining Room where a rotating schedule of works by local artists has added color and joy to the atmosphere for years.

William Harby Paintings

August 15 to October 14, 2021

Artist William Harby (1927–2015) spent many of his most productive artistic years at his family summer home in York. Harby’s careers in art and engineering alternated and overlapped for much of his life. His engineering career led him, in 1965, to the Harvard College Observatory, where he served as program manager for the Orbiting Solar Observatory, a joint project with NASA and the Skylab Program, for two decades. Retiring mid-career, Harby became a full-time artist, traveling around the world to paint and sculpt. This show was curated from six decades of paintings, drawings, sculptures and assemblages in metal, stone and other materials that explore the range of possibility from representation to abstraction..

Caroline Kelley Pastel Paintings

October 15 to December 30, 2021

Of her artistic process, Caroline Kelley says: “I am a pastel painter from seacoast Maine who treasures her memories of this inspiring landscape. Memories of moments that are both imperfect and fleeting. My New England is forests, beaches, marshes and mountains, small towns on ports, or built around rivers straddled by textile mills. Through the changing seasons, I paint spring gardens, cold winters, lake summers, stone walls and fall leaves. Pastel painting allows me to work with vibrant, accurate color in an expressive manner that I hope conveys the pleasure I receive in witnessing all of these.”
