  • EPILOGUES, new work by Abbie Read and Jessica Straus @ Perimeter Gallery

    From April 1 through May 17, Perimeter Gallery presents "Epilogues" a show of mixed media constructions by Maine artist Abbie Read and Boston area sculptor Jessica Straus. Both artists make labor intensive handwork and the re-purposing of discarded or obsolete materials integral to their art practices. For the current exhibition, books are their fodder. Straus meticulously crafts sculptures that juxtapose splayed pages from Boston Yellow Pages or computer manuals with carved and painted wood. Read uses hardcover books, which she cuts into strips, reconfigures and sews back together to create large wall-hung collages reminiscent of quilts. ... view event

  • "Bearing Fruit: Art at the Intersection of Human and Vegetable" @ Maine Farmland Trust Gallery

    through May 9. Works from Anne Alexander, Leah Gauthier, Jacinda Martinez, and Julie H. Rose. Bearing Fruit plays at the intersection of human form and plant forms, the interdependence of species, or better yet, inseparable-ness - as reflected in the physical sensuality of Alexander's vegetables or the vulnerability of Martinez' models wrapped in their vegetable-fiber dresses. On the most basic level, the imagery suggests that we all stem from the same source. view event
