Through May 3. Gleason Fine
Art is pleased to announce that the gallery has added color woodblock printer
Robert Clark to its roster of artists. Well-known around Mount Desert Island as
a builder of custom homes, Clark has developed his own unique approach to wood
block print making.
Clark's tools include the computer, digital camera, and laser engraver. Using
artist's oil paint instead of printer's ink, Clark builds his images by inking
and hand burnishing each block multiple times. This yields vibrant prints that
have both depth and texture.Clark's prints are strongly influenced by the early 20th century print makers,
especially Gustave Baumann.
Through May 1. This show is part of a traveling exhibition of more than 100 artists' books made by international artists from 24 countries. The books and broadsides in this exhibit were made in response to the March 5, 2007 car bomb that exploded on Al-Mutanabbi Street, the ancient street of booksellers, poets and writers, located at the literary and cultural heart of Baghdad, Iraq. The exhibition, curated by Beau Beausoleil and Sarah Bodman, aims to bear witness to the events on Al-Mutanabbi Street and to collectively affirm that the right to a free exchange of ideas and culture in public space is never to be taken for granted. view event

Through June 4, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm Maine College of Art alum Anne Ireland grew up on a saltwater farm in Maine, where she returns every summer. Ireland's work reveals the ongoing dialog she has with the Maine landscape. Reflecting a complicated and ardent relationship with color, Ireland strives to capture the emotion present in hayfields, stands of pine, and ever-changing skies. Her intent is to "transform the iconic into the newly discovered, transporting the viewer to a place that is at once familiar and foreign, a place that asks questions and demands answers, a place of infinite possibility." view event
