Abstract

"Cover Story" piece on Portland gallery owner June Fitzpatrick, 60, who is equal parts mother, teacher, art dealer, gallery owner, and one of the most popular people in the local arts scene. In the past decade, Fitzpatrick has made a name for herself as a respected arbiter of taste with a discerning eye for cutting-edge, intelligent work. About 90 percent of what she shows would be considered abstract. A native of England, Fitzpatrick came to Portland in 1964 and, for four years, was a feature writer for the Maine Sunday Telegram. During the 1980s, she was a foster parent to a total of 42 babies. And in 1985, she began Portland Nannies, a placement service. She took over the Trove Gallery in 1992. With special focus on the works of painters John Bonanno and Greg Day, and ceramics artist Sequoia Miller.
