Waterfall Arts in Belfast will host a talk by Maine artist Amy Stacey Curtis at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 28. Curtis, who is Maine Arts Commission’s 2005 Individual Artist Fellow for Visual Art, will talk about her large-scale work. When completed, Curtis will have installed 81 large interactive installation and new media works in the vast mill buildings of a number of Maine towns.
Curtis has begun moving into the former Carlton Woolen Mill in Winthrop where she will install her seventh solo exhibit, SPACE. The exhibit opens on Saturday, October 6 and is open daily through October 26. Many of the installations require participants’ physical touch or effect while others function through active and purposeful perception. The audience will be asked to manipulate, maintain, enter, detect, distinguish, recognize and will be challenged to contemplate space in new ways. The talk is free, but donations are welcome.
