Fresh Cup Gallery is proud to announce the addition of works by local artist Gabriella D’Italia. D’Italia’s professional practice began with an emphasis on fiber, especially quilting techniques, which has earned her membership in Maine’s longstanding craft guilds such as The Maine Crafts Guild and the Maine Crafts Association. The conceptual nature of D’Italia’s practice has expanded her range of materials and techniques, and although she still uses labor intensive, repetitive processes in most work, it now includes video, writing, and installation. Her work has been exhibited internationally as well as in Maine. Fresh Cup is also proud to exhibit new works from local potters Nate Willever, Paige Pride, Adam Bogosian, and Cory Upton-Cosulich.
Maine Farmland Trust Gallery shows Cow Tales. This exhibit combines the pared-down modernist cow paintings of Frances Hynes and the plucked-from-the-pasture, plein air paintings by Sharon Yates with recent statistics on the dairy industry in Maine. Several original drawings and watercolors by Dahlov Ipcar, from the 1940’s and 50’s, are also included.
Quench: Provisions for the Savvy on Beaver Street will open Artfully Orchestrated: Illustrations on Vintage Sheet Music by Jessica Harris.
