Artist Open Houses


Check out the work of our current artists during the next Artist Open House. Join us at the Artist Open House as we celebrate two Westbrook artists- Caren-Marie Michel & Fred Michel!

Caren-Marie Michel is a Maine Contemporary Landscape Painter who works in plein air and studio based painting. Her paintings employ a strong and distinctive brush work with a bold use of color in a highly individualized palette. Among those focusing on local and regional landscapes of Maine, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia her work is distinctive. Caren-Marie is an important and well regarded contemporary Maine landscape artist.
Fred Michel is a master horticulturist who explores the intersection of Horticultural and Art through a unique process of large-scale photocopying. By methodically harvesting, exploring, altering, then arranging elements from nature on the glass of a high resolution copier Fred is able to achieve unique and lush images. These are then printed on aluminum to achieve an intensity of detail and color.
Both artists have exhibited and are in collections locally, regionally and nationally. They will have works for sale.

Artist Open House for Caren-Marie Michel & Fred Michel will be at Westbrook On Tap, February 16th, 4 to 6:30 PM.


DDW hosts open houses for local artists and invites the community to view and celebrate the artists’ works. These events have been quickly growing in popularity since their inception in December 2021. The fun informal gatherings feature great opportunities for the community to connect and celebrate the many talented artists in Westbrook. The artwork is for sale.
