By popular demand, artist Linden Frederick is hosting a second Tuesday Talk! Join us as he discusses his current exhibition Night Stories, a collaboration with 15 noted authors. Stay after the talk for refreshments and further conversation.

The exhibition, Night Stories, and the accompanying book, have been eight years in the making. When artist Linden Frederick (b. 1953) realized a growing number of his collectors are novelists and screenwriters, 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 as inspiration and then, over the following months, write a unique story inspired by it.

A native of Amsterdam, New York, Linden Frederick’s paintings are celebrated for their evocative light and atmosphere. Compared favorably to Edward Hopper’s American scene paintings, Frederick’s contemporary works suggest the human presence without depicting it, allowing the viewer to complete the narrative.

Frederick has lived and worked in Belfast, Maine since 1989. He has had more than twenty solo exhibitions of his work throughout the United States, including the exhibition You Are Here, held at CMCA in Rockport, in 2010. Night Stories will be on view at CMCA through November 5, 2017.
