The Spirit of Maine
August 10-24, 2021
When one thinks of Maine, images drawn from memory and photographs often appear: a deep navy sea, towering pine trees, and even more imposing mountains. The artists in this presentation have interpreted these hallmark features in their own distinct ways, and in doing so, challenge us to see beyond the literal and embrace the wondrous spirit of Maine captured in each stroke and color.
True to Nature
July 13-27, 2021
True to Nature celebrates the contributions of four painters-Georgia O'Keeffe, Ida O'Keeffe, Henrietta Shore, and Helen Torr-who shared the unique opportunities and challenges of women artists working in the early twentieth century.
Norman Lewis and Romare Bearden
July 27-August 10, 2021
At the height of the 1960s, Norman Lewis and Romare Bearden were frequent collaborators in addressing the role of the artist amidst vast societal and racial inequality. The convergence of these artists and their practices provided a platform for underrepresented artists to communicate their cultural, social and aesthetic concerns as a vehicle for change. This exhibition celebrates the collages, paintings, and works on paper by Lewis and Bearden, both pioneers in modernist abstraction and figuration, whose achievements came to a crescendo at a time when few critics paid attention.
