Upcoming Cumberland County Events

  • : Art - Aug 29 thru Dec 09 - Portland - Broken Treaty Quilts by Gina Adams - USM Maine Woodbury Campus Center AREA Gallery - Upcoming Cumberland County Maine Events
    Its Honor is Here Pledged: Broken Treaty Quilts by Gina Adams on display at AREA Gallery, Woodbury Campus Center, Portland campus. Although she is half Euro-American, Gina Adams's art is primarily inspired by and deeply committed to the memory of her White Earth Ojibwa grandfather. The Native North American history of forced assimilation, along with the intimate process of making, drives her project of making quilts excerpting broken treaties from each of the US states. Seven quilts are featured here, including a Maine quilt referencing broken Wabanaki land claims treaties. Gina Adams' cross-media, hybrid artwork is exhibited extensively throughout the US and Europe and resides in many public and private collections. Events include a conversation with Gina Adams on Thursday, Nov. 3 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Also on Friday, Nov. 4 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. there will be a powerpoint presentation by Gina Adams in the Burnham Lounge, Robie Andrews Hall, Gorham campus. Exhibit on display from Aug. 29 through Dec. 9, 2016.

  • : Art - Nov 16 thru Jan 14 - Portland - Mark Marchesi Exhibit - PhoPa Gallery - Upcoming Cumberland County Maine Events
    Evangeline: A Modern Tale of Acadia features photographs by Mark Marchesi. This project is inspired by HW Longfellow's epic poem Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie. First published in 1847, the piece tells a tragic story about the expulsion of early French settlers in the mid 1700s from the territory that later became Nova Scotia. Mark took an interest in the poem and began photographing the Annapolis Valley in 2012. Today, much of the rural western shore is again declining in population. The abandoned properties, vacant ports and primordial landscapes in his photos represent his own modern tale of Acadia. Mark is publishing a photographic book that will be released in conjunction with the exhibit, which will be on display from Nov. 16 through Jan. 14. Reception and book launch on Thursday, Dec. 8 at 5 p.m. Artist Talk on Sunday, Jan. 8, at 3 p.m.
