Rockland, Maine, October 28, 2016 —The Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) invites artists of all ages to seek out the makers and materials that speak to them most in the 2016 CMCA Biennial. Led by ArtLab educator Alexis Iammarino, participants will dive into the diverse currents of contemporary art making and wade into the creative depths explored by this year’s twenty-five Biennial artists. Participants will reflect on and share their own art and ideas using creative prompts with words and pictures. Perhaps you’ll find an artistic ancestor or kindred thinker! Bring your friends, your family, or come on your own on Saturday, November 5, from 2-4 pm at the new CMCA, located at 21 Winter Street, Rockland. ArtLab welcomes children, teens, adults, and families, and is free of charge and open to all.
CMCA’s Saturday afternoon ArtLabs are led by interdisciplinary artist/educator Alexis Iammarino. Alexis received her Masters in Community Art from Maryland Institute College of Art, and is also a member and educator at Steel House in Rockland.
ArtLab is supported in part by the Milton and Sally Avery Art Foundation, the Bob Crewe Foundation, Camden National Bank, and individual donors.
