This is some select audio (of middling quality) from a 2015 interview between Norman E. West (Ogunquit Art Association / Barn Gallery artist) and Eric Taubert for Artscope Magazine - against the backdrop of images from Norman giving an artist talk at the Barn Gallery on Shore Road in Ogunquit (2015), images of Norman's home studio (2015), and images of Norman's estate sale (also at the Barn Gallery - on 5/6/17).
Norman E. West Jr., 64, of Ogunquit, died Friday, November 11, 2016 at Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston after a period of failing health.
Norman was born May 16, 1952, in Exeter, N.H., the son of Norman E. and Alice M. (Gimond) West. He grew up in Newton, N.H., one of seven children. He attended Sanborn Regional Schools graduating in 1972. He received a scholarship to Plymouth State. Norman moved to Maine in 1974. He then attended Portland School of Art, graduating in 1980.
Norman was passionate about art and became a renowned artist and teacher. He attributes his next door neighbor in Newton, Clifford R. Bryer (Uncle Cliff), for not only giving him art lessons but taking him to museums and cultivating his passion for art. Norman taught many classes at many schools - Heartwood College of Art, Traip Academy and St. Thomas Aquinas to name a few. His work is around the world in many private collections but locally it can be found at the Ogunquit Museum of American Art, the Barn Gallery and Van Ward Gallery. He was a member of the Union of Maine Visual Artists, the Ogunquit Art Association, N.H. Art Association and was on the board of the Ogunquit Heritage Museum.
