Jeffery Becton Talk + Book Signing

Jeffrey BectonJeffery Becton’s “Blue Calm,” digital montage realized as archival pigment print

The Center for Maine Contemporary Art concludes its summer 2015 lineup of gallery talks on Wednesday, August 26 at 5:30 p.m. Please join us for a book signing and conversation with artist Jeffery Becton and author Carl Little on the occasion of the publication of “Jeffery Becton: The Farthest House.”

Jeffery Becton, one of the first artists to explore the possibilities of digital montage in fine art photography, creates dreamlike, contemplative images reminiscent of watercolors that blur the lines between the domestic and natural worlds. In this comprehensive volume, author Carl Little traces Becton’s development as an artist from the 1970s to now, focusing on Becton’s use of New England–and especially Maine–landscapes and landmarks in his work.

This event will be at CMCA’s summer 2015 temporary space in the Bicknell Building, 11 Lime Street, Rockland. The talk and signing are free of charge; seating is limited, please call 236-2875 for reservations.
