David Row | The Shape of Things

May 29 - September 12

The Shape of Things is the first major exhibition of painter and master printmaker David Row’s work in his home state. Born in Portland, in 1949, Row is a multi-generational Mainer. His father’s family settled in Perry, a small town in Washington County near the Canadian border, in the early 19th century. Row visited the family homestead many times as a child and thought of it “as the wildest place I’d ever seen.” In his teen years, Row’s family began…

S.B. Walker | Nor’East

May 29 - September 12

For six years beginning in early 2014, photographer S.B. (Sam) Walker traveled more than 100,000 miles throughout Maine, a well-marked gazetteer at his side, in an attempt to render a truly nuanced visual record of the state. On the face of it, a project such as this appears to be a rational, census-like undertaking akin to the vast photographic surveys conducted in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In reality though, it was an odyssey determined by intuition, serendipity,…

Will o’ the Wisp

May 29 - September 12

The Will o’ the Wisp is a mischievous sprite that leads weary travelers deeper and deeper into a treacherous swamp with its lantern-like, shimmering countenance. For the exhibition Will o the’ Wisp, eight artists bound together by a common interest in speculative futures and ecology bring forth a collective vision of a dreamworld populated by spirits that entice and confound perception. Will o’ the Wisp weaves personal narratives into the setting of a bog roiling with mysterious gases. This psychedelic miasma combines lightworks,…

Aaron T Stephan | Simple Twist of Fate

June 29 - August 31

The Portland-based artist is presenting his monumental sculpture, Simple Twist of Fate (2020) in CMCA’s public courtyard from June 29 through August 31, 2021. The sculpture is composed of interlocking, hand-twisted concrete blocks that form a free-standing spiral structure. Stephan has also used dye in casting the blocks, resulting in two shades of gray and pink that accentuate the twisting movement of the piece. The sculpture’s spiral form and color palette dynamically capture light and shadow in a multitude of…

Spatial Relations | Main Gallery

October 2, 2021 | 8:00 am - January 9, 2022 | 5:00 pm

This three-person exhibition will present sculptures by Elizabeth Atterbury, Gordon Hall and Anna Hepler, that were created to rest directly on the floor or gallery walls. The artists each employ spare, sometimes repetitive forms displaying a visibly direct use of materials (wood, ceramic, metal, concrete). The exhibition title alludes to each artists' exceptional use of volume, scale and surface in each of their works and to the charged negative space that will exist between them. The exhibition will be installed…
