Rockland, ME, May 29, 2020 — The Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) is hosting its monthly ArtLab for All Ages workshops via Facebook Live while its doors are closed to the public in response to CDC guidelines on COVID-19.
Artists of all ages are invited to join ArtLab educators Mia Bogyo and Alexis Iammarino for the third livestream workshop on Saturday, June 6, from 2 to 3pm at facebook.com/cmcanow. Following the workshop, participants are encouraged to share their work in a community show ‘n tell via Zoom at 3:30pm. To participate in the show ‘n tell, email Mia Bogyo at firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link.
The theme for this month’s ArtLab is inspired by the work of artist Anne Neely on view in the current exhibition, Skirting the Line. The exhibition may be viewed in advance of the workshop at cmcanow.org/virtual-tours. Workshop participants will be introduced to a variety of painterly processes to create personal narratives drawing on Neely’s work as inspiration. A materials list will be posted to CMCA’s Facebook page and website prior to the start of the workshop.
ArtLab for All Ages takes place on the first Saturday of every month and is made possible free of charge through the support of Wells Fargo, the Fisher Charitable Foundation, Margaret E. Burnham Trust, Milton & Sally Avery Arts Foundation, Morton-Kelly Charitable Trust, and individual donors.
