Abstract

"Outdoors" piece on "The Maine Odyssey," a four-day kayak adventure to Upper Goose Island in Casco Bay that reprises expeditions taken by the Brushians, a little-known group of local artists active in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The six-person crew consists of artist Bob Braine, 41, and his botanist-wife Leslie Reed, 24, both of Brooklyn, New York; Toby Kamps, 39, director of Maine College of Art's (MECA) Institute of Contemporary Art; as well as Nathaniel Edmunds, 21, Noah Frigault, 20, and Jack Rigollet, 22, all seniors at MECA. The Brushians (sometimes called the Brush 'Uns or Brussians) were an informal group of post-Impressionist artists who painted and sketched on outings to the Casco Bay Islands. Led by George Frederic Morse, other members included John Calvin Stevens, Charles Frederick Kimball and Edward Souther Griffin.
