  • : Art - Jan 18 thru Mar 04 - Portland - Drawing with Seaweed: Celeste Roberge - PhoPa Gallery - Upcoming Cumberland County Maine Events
    Drawing with Seaweed presents a variety of Celeste Roberge's newest explorations with seaweed on paper, ranging from mixed media compositions incorporating seaweed, fabric and photographs to cyanotype impressions of collected seaweed. Celeste became interested in seaweed in 2008 while walking along Hirtle's Beach on the south shore of Nova Scotia. Attracted to the intricacy of patterns and variety of colors, Celeste began making sculptures of seaweed boats in wax, bronze, cast iron and brass, and in the seaweed itself. She studied the science of seaweed further, learning to identify various types, and soon began pushing wet seaweed around on wet paper. She says, "the more I manipulated the seaweed, the more I saw relationships with similar concerns in earlier art works and analogies to design and technology in fabrics and metals. I was smitten." Celeste Roberge was born in Biddeford, Maine. She lives and works in South Portland. She is Professor Emerita, College of the Arts, University of Florida where she was Head of Sculpture in the School of Art + Art History for twenty-two years. She received her MFA degree from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, BFA from the Maine. Opening reception on January 19 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Artist talk on Feb. 4 at 3 p.m. Exhibit on display from Jan. 18 through Mar. 4.
  • : Art - Feb 03 thru Apr 04 - Portland - The Mistress and the Muse - Portland Museum of Art - Upcoming Cumberland County Maine Events
    The Mistress and the Muse: Selections from the Isabelle and Scott Black Collection features paintings, sculptures, and works on paper from the esteemed Isabelle and Scott Black Collection. The exhibition explores the social and aesthetic dynamics that distinguish portraiture, a genre of art in which an individual's specific characteristics are paramount, from figure studies, where the identity and personality of the model is secondary to the artwork's narrative. The relationship between these two artistic modes was made increasingly complex in the modern period, when artists' efforts to depict men and women were marked by fragmentation, pictorial distortion, and abstraction. Exhibit on display from Feb. 3 through June 4, 2017.
  • : Art - Feb 03 thru Apr 30 - Portland - The Thrill of the Chase - Portland Museum of Art - Upcoming Cumberland County Maine Events
    From 1973 to 1984, Samuel J. Wagstaff, Jr. (American, 1921-1987) assembled one of the most important private collections of photographs in the world. Wagstaff promoted photography as an art form by organizing exhibitions, delivering lectures, and publishing material on his collection. In 1984, a few years before his death from AIDS-related complications, Wagstaff sold his collection to the J. Paul Getty Museum. Numbering several thousand, the collection now forms a cornerstone of the Getty Museum's holdings of photographs. Exhibit on display from Feb. 3 through Apr. 30, 2017.
  • : Art - Feb 03 thru May 29 - Portland - Artist's Choice - Portland Museum of Art - Upcoming Cumberland County Maine Events
    The photographs in this focus exhibit all belong to the artist and collector Judy Glickman Lauder, who has spent her life immersed in photography. She is an acclaimed photographer herself, yet her joy in the medium began during her childhood, when she would model for her father, Irving Bennett Ellis. Lauder began collecting photographs over 40 years ago, visiting the studios of other artists whenever possible and finding community and friendship through photography, both as an artist and an admirer of the works of others. An active participant in the Maine Photographic Workshops (now the Maine Media Workshops) in Rockport, she began swapping photographs with friends she met there in the 1970s and '80s. As a result, one notable aspect of her collection is that it includes art by many of the Workshops' most illustrious alumni. Exhibit on display from Feb. 3 through June 4, 2017.

  • : Art - Mar 08 thru Apr 08 - Portland - Sal Taylor Kydd + Megan Magill - PhoPa Gallery - Upcoming Cumberland County Maine Events
    Momentary Certainties features work by Megan Magill and Sal Taylor Kydd. Megan Magill will exhibit work from her recent project, My Business is Circumference, in which she created one of a kind works on paper by pushing dry mediums, such as powdered graphite and chalk pastels, through a photographically exposed silkscreen. Sal Taylor Kydd will show platinum palladium photographs that capture passing moments in the natural world, expressing both a sense of place and discovery. Both artists think of the photographic object as a "keepsake of human experience" and hope that their work will prompt viewers to reflect on time, memory, and the fleeting moments of our passing lives. Through working in alternative processes, such themes are embodied in the artistic practices in which the artists engage. Sal Taylor Kydd and Megan Magill are recent graduates of the MFA program at Maine Media College (MMC), in Rockport, Maine. The low-residency program at MMC is geared toward artists interested in engaging in a rigorous educational experience leading to the MFA degree in the media arts fields of photography, filmmaking and multimedia. Opening reception on Thursday, Mar. 9 at 5 p.m. Artist talk on Thursday, Apr. 6 at 5:30 p.m. Exhibit on display from Mar. 8 through Apr. 8.
