Charlie Hewitt

Growing up in Lewiston/Auburn, Maine and Brunswick, New Jersey, Charlie Hewitt was surrounded by the tremendous energy and culture of the mill-working communities. His work speaks of standing near the Wiseman Bridge, on Canal Street in Lewiston as a boy, to watch the hundreds of millworkers pour in and out of the mills at the end of a shift. Hewitt also talks of the three priorities that were common to all in these communities—the church, family, and work. Through indirect references, these influences and experiences have infused Hewitt's artwork throughout his career and are the foundation for some of the imagery and symbols he creates.


Hewitt has shown his work in a number of solo exhibitions since the mid-1970s including M-13 Gallery, New York, Jim Kempner Fine Art, New York, Farnsworth Museum, Rockland, Maine, and the Center for Contemporary Printmaking, Norwalk, Connecticut, among others. Group exhibitions include Portland Museum of Art, Portland, Maine, International Print Biennial, Ljubljana, Yugoslavia, and Greenville Museum of Art, Greenville, South Carolina. In 2006, Mark H.C. Bessire published The Graphic Work of Charlie Hewitt
