Richard Brown Lethem: Figure <=> Abstraction

The Smoker by Marci Oakes Woodbury
Richard Brown Lethem, Surveyor, mixed media, 2010

 

Brown Lethem’s work is borne of Abstract Expressionism, but reaches beyond the bounds of simple abstraction into the world of the figure. In his best work, he combines the inward life of the abstractionist with the outer world figures, connecting emotional consciousness with the visceral form.

In the Sculpture Gallery.

Amy Stacey Curtis: Drawings

The Smoker by Marci Oakes Woodbury
Amy Stacy Curtis, Safety Pin, graphite, 2013, 10 x 10"

 

In 1998, Amy Stacey Curtis began what would be an 18-year commitment to art-making, a project culminating in nine solo-biennial exhibits from the year 2000 to the year 2016. In the end, she will have installed 81 large-in-scope, interactive works in the vast empty mill spaces of eight or nine Maine towns. Each solo biennial is a 22-month process from conceptualization to documentation, each exploring a different theme while requiring audiences to perpetuate its multiple installations. For the first time Curtis’ biennial installation will be located in southern Maine (location to be determined at this writing). MATTER, her exhibition sponsored in part by the OMAA, comprises nine temporary large-scale works, each an audience-activated experience. This exhibition is comprised of drawings purchased by the Museum in support of the artist’ installation.
