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…

Piper Cub

Mark Wethli | Piper Cub

February 11 - May 14

Who can do anything better than this propeller? Can you? —Marcel Duchamp, speaking to Constantin Brancusi in front of an airplane, 1914 The most noticeable thing about artist Mark Wethli’s Piper Cub is that it’s incomplete; the abstract framework of an airplane rather than one that’s ready to fly. Piper Cub’s identity is further complicated, like Magritte’s famous pipe, by its uncertainty. Is it an actual plane, a sculpture of a plane, a full-scale model of a plane or in…

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. Presented in this exhibition are selected examples of the artist’s recent woodcuts, serigraphs,…

Sam Cady | Parts of the Whole

February 18 - June 11

“The world is emblematic. Parts of speech are metaphors, because the whole of nature is a metaphor of the human mind.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson The first full-scale retrospective of the work of artist Sam Cady, this exhibition presents a broad selection of the artist’s emblematic shaped and rectangular paintings created over four decades, as well as a sampling of drawings, studies, and recent “fragments,” painted abstractions culled from the remainders of the shaped canvases. Ever tuned to seeing aesthetic possibility in…

Jenny Brillhart + Sara Stites | Temporality

May 20 - August 13

The sixth iteration of CMCA's Counterpoint exhibition series brings together the work of artists Jenny Brillhart (Stonington, ME) and Sara Stites (Thomaston, ME and Miami, FL). The notion of light moving over time offers a conceptual approach to Stites and Brillhart's intuitive ways of working and individual narratives. Documenting shadow movement through paint, material, and photography, the artists advocate connections of process, studio, and specificity of place. Their use of found and made objects as sculpture as well as subject…

William Wegman | Video Works and Drawings 1970-1978

June 10 - October 22

An important pioneer in video art, William Wegman created thousands of short performance-oriented video works 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. Working concurrently with other early West Coast video artists as Bruce Nauman and John Baldessari, Wegman’s videos from the period are delightfully absurd parodies of “high…

John Walker | From Seal Point

June 24 - October 29

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,…

Linden Frederick | Night Stories

August 19 - November 5

The exhibition and book Night Stories has been eight years in the making. When artist Linden Frederick realized a growing number of his collectors are writers of novels and screenplays, he wondered what would happen if the writer-illustrator relationship were reversed: the painting first, then the writing. The result is Night Stories. Fifteen celebrated American fiction writers each agreed to select one painting especially created by Frederick for the exhibition as inspiration and then, over the following months, write a unique story inspired by…
