CICELY AIKMAN (American 1923 – 2013) painted the changing world around her studios in Friendship, Maine, and by a canal to the Indian River in Vero Beach, Florida. For many years, she lived and worked in Brattleboro, Vermont, where she produced light-filled paintings that explored lively color relationships and shapes of plants and animals in seasonal landscapes and interiors. The many galleries and museums that have featured her one-woman and group shows include The Farnsworth Art Museum, Rockland, ME, The University of Maine at Augusta, Green Mountain Gallery, Westbeth Gallery and Artists Gallery of New York, and Provincetown Art Association in Massachusetts. She studied at Corcoran School of Fine Arts, the University of Chicago, and the Art Students League. Her oil on canvas “January” was included in WINTER IN MAINE, a book written by Carl Little, published by Down East Books.
