DIAA announces “Phases of Matter”

The Deer Isle Artists’ Association announces a new three-person show “Phases of Matter” featuring the work of Sam Jones, Heather Lyon, and Anya Antonovych Metcalf. The show will run from October 8 through October 26.

The three women work in a variety of mediums, including painting, glass, and photography. For example, in an ongoing series of photographs titled “Simulacra vs. the Weather”, Anya Antonovych Metcalf explores light as a metaphor for knowledge. She is interested in natural and artificial light as they might denote ways of knowing, but she is especially interested in cases where the light source is ambiguous or where nature and culture/technology are engaged in complex relationships.

An opening reception will be held on October 8, from 3-6 p.m. This is also Deer Isle’s Wednesday and a Half, and potter David McBeth will be holding a demonstration at the gallery during this time. Additionally, a closing reception will be held on Saturday, October 25, from 5-7 p.m.

The DIAA gallery is open Fridays through Sundays, from 11:00 AM– 5:00 PM, and is located at 15 Main Street in Deer Isle Village. For more information, call (207) 348-2330.
