America Now, a dialogue…

A group of artists, living and working in Maine,  is coming together to mount a group exhibition entitled : AMERICA NOW.

This exhibition is focused on artistic creativity in a country divided against itself and considers the purpose and function of the arts in times  of social and political stress.

This exhibition is hosted by the HOLOCAUST AND HUMAN RIGHTS CENTER of Maine (HHRC) and will be displayed ONLINE at this website , and at the Center, University of Maine at Augusta.

This group show will include paintings, prints, photographs and installations and is Curated by Bruce Brown.

It is mounted under the direction and with the encouragement of HHRC Program Director David Greenham.

We, the artists, consider this work to be in the nature of a dialogue, and we invite you to join us.

This exhibition will feature the work of five artists, working in a variety of disciplines, who have taken part in the Haystack Open Studio Residency. Established in 2013, this program provides two weeks of uninterrupted time and space for professional working artists to explore their work in a supportive community. The residency takes place annually, and is designed to foster artistic exploration at the highest level.

Participating artists:

Jody Burr

Haystack’s exhibition series is an outgrowth of the school ’s commitment to supporting the dynamic work being done by makers of contemporary craft and to the creative process implicit in that. These exhibitions are an incredible resource for the community—featuring work by internationally distinguished makers—and also provide an opportunity to learn about these makers’ creative process as well. Past exhibitions have included recycled and repaired Japanese textiles – to work by traditional artists from Northern New England – to works by artists whose creative process has been influenced by their time at, and association with, Haystack. The Center for Community Programs is open on Wednesday and Friday-Sunday from 1:00–5:00 p.m. throughout the summer season, with informal receptions held every other Sunday afternoon. From time to time, we also schedule visits by appointment. These events, free and open to the public, attract a cross section of island residents and summer visitors, as well as our workshop participants.
