The Sohns Gallery presents “New Works by Michael Lewis”


The Sohns Gallery in Bangor presents “New Works by Michael Lewis.” An artist’s reception and discussion will be held on Friday June 27 at 6:30 with the artist discussion at 7 p.m. Michael Lewis attended art school at Syracuse University and later earned his MFA at Maine College of Art.   This show is comprised of work assembled while immersed in numerous books on the cultures of the Northwest Pacific Coast Salish and Tlingit, as well as the Navajo. “While I have restructured and composed individual mythologies which are unconcerned with the myths of those indigenous nations, the foundation and methods of communication were always there to guide me.”   As the myths have developed so too has the work.  Each layer of imagery builds both metaphorically and physically to create works with Deleuzzean rhizomal association displayed in low relief.  For more information please call 947-2205
