Screen | Loretta Park | Recent Animations

January 24 - June 12

Questioning when a work is finished, Loretta Park’s animated pieces reside in a  constant state of flux, made of various lines, shapes, and lengths. Although the forms do not depict any specific ideas or items, the work is embedded with a sense of figure and passage of time. Moving drawings are created by combining photographic images, marks, and colors--the small visual elements accumulate and turn into complex, animated structures. These densely detailed structures move continuously at varying speeds, becoming both…

David Driskell | Renewal and Form

February 11 - June 4

“Religion and ritual and the mythic are concerns I have always nurtured in my art.” – David Driskell Boldly drawn and richly patterned, David Driskell’s imagery in his prints, as in his collages and mixed media work, derives from his childhood experiences growing up in the rural South, his deep love for the Maine landscape, and his in-depth knowledge of and appreciation for African art and textiles.

William Wegman | Reel to Real

June 10 - October 22

An important pioneer in video art, William Wegman created hundreds of short performance-oriented videos between 1970 and 1978, which are now considered classics in the field. He began experimenting with the new medium in earnest in 1970, while living in Southern California, where he taught for a year at California State College, Long Beach.

John Walker | From Seal Point

For more than two decades, artist John Walker has been painting the view from his property at Seal Point, Maine, and his tough, lush, muscular paintings from this place have been described as “existential images.” Seal Point is for Walker what Mont Saint Victoire was for Cezanne, a subject to be revisited time and again until, as the artist says, “one knows more about it than anyone else. That is what Seal Point is to me.” For the first time,…
