Charlie Hewitt Biography

Charlie Hewitt (b.1946) is a nationally known Maine-born painter, printmaker, and sculptor. His work is stylistically rooted in expressionism and surrealism, and is both playful and serious, a quality he shares with artists Alexander Calder, Joan Miro, Paul Klee, and his mentor Philip Guston, who was a major postwar figure of the New York School.

Hewitt grew up in a large working-class French Canadian family in the mill-working communities of Lewiston/Auburn and Brunswick, Maine. Home was a place of family, love, and faith. Life revolved around church and work, and the energetic culture of these mill towns became the foundation for his imagery and symbols.

Hewitt’s work is in numerous private and public collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; Whitney Museum of American Art, NY; Museum of Modern Art, NY; Library of Congress, Washington, DC; and in Maine at the Portland Museum of Art, the Farnsworth Museum of Art, and in the art museums at Bates, Bowdoin, and Colby colleges.

Hewitt maintains studios in Portland, Maine, and New York City, where his work has been exhibited continuously since 1973. Variations from his sculpture series “Urban Rattle” are installed on the High Line in Chelsea, New York (the only permanent installation on the High Line), and in the Maine cities of Lewiston and Portland. Hewitt recently unveiled his “Hopeful” sign at Speedwell Projects in Portland, Maine.

Hewitt lives in Yarmouth, Maine, with his wife and their two children.
