University of Maine Museum of Art opens three new exhibitions

“I Remember What I Did Not See” by Sachiko Akiyama

The University of Maine Museum of Art in Bangor will open three new exhibitions on Friday, October 4. In “Sachiko Akiyama: On Finding Home,” Sachiko Akiyama creates figures that are carved primarily from wood and finished with beautifully painted surfaces. The sculptures are often self-portraits which speak to the inner lives of individuals. “Susan Burnstine & Lynn Saville: From the Shadows,” features works by Los Angeles-based Susan Burnstine and Manhattan-based Lynn Saville. In these black and white images, both photographers capture mostly urban landscapes heightened with a sense of mystery and drama. In “Gregory Kalliche:  GPOY,” GPOY stands for Gratuitous Picture of Yourself, Gregory Kalliche’s series exploring the idea of visual effects. UMMA’s fall exhibitions will run through January 4, 2014.
