In 1984, a few years before his death from AIDS-related complications, Wagstaff sold his collection to the J. Paul Getty Museum.

Artist's Choice - Portland Museum of Art

7 Congress Square
Portland, Maine 04101
Phone: (207) 775-6148

          

Feb 03 thru May 29, 2017. The photographs in this focus exhibit all belong to the artist and collector Judy Glickman Lauder, who has spent her life immersed in photography. She is an acclaimed photographer herself, yet her joy in the medium began during her childhood, when she would model for her father, Irving Bennett Ellis. Lauder began collecting photographs over 40 years ago, visiting the studios of other artists whenever possible and finding community and friendship through photography, both as an artist and an admirer of the works of others. An active participant in the Maine Photographic Workshops (now the Maine Media Workshops) in Rockport, she began swapping photographs with friends she met there in the 1970s and '80s. As a result, one notable aspect of her collection is that it includes art by many of the Workshops' most illustrious alumni. Exhibit on display from Feb. 3 through June 4, 2017.

Francis Orville Libby Exhibit - PhoPa Gallery

132 Washington Avenue
Portland, Maine
Phone: (207) 517-0200

          

Apr 12 thru May 27, 2017. A Keen Eye and Soft Focus, guest curated by Susan Danly, presents the work of Francis Orville Libby (1883-1961), one of Maine's first art photographers, a leading pictorialist, and an early president of the Portland Camera Club alongside the work of contemporary photographers who share some of his early aesthetic concerns. For over a century, from the turn of the 20th century to the 21st century of today, art photography has included a range of approaches. From detailed, sharp focus images in black and white to softly focused pictures in muted color, modern photographers have produced a wealth of images that convey mood, artful expression, and impressionistic views of our surroundings, both rural and industrial. The exhibition will highlight work by contemporary, Maine-based photographers Judy Glickman Lauder, Koichiro Kurita, Amy Parrish, Shoshannah White, David Wolfe among others, following in Libby's footsteps. Opening reception on Thursday, Apr. 20 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Curator's talk on Thursday, Apr. 27 at 5:30 p.m. Exhibit on display from Apr. 12 through May 27.

The Mistress and the Muse - Portland Museum of Art

7 Congress Square
Portland, Maine 04101
Phone: (207) 775-6148

          

Feb 03 thru Apr 04, 2017. The Mistress and the Muse: Selections from the Isabelle and Scott Black Collection features paintings, sculptures, and works on paper from the esteemed Isabelle and Scott Black Collection. The exhibition explores the social and aesthetic dynamics that distinguish portraiture, a genre of art in which an individual's specific characteristics are paramount, from figure studies, where the identity and personality of the model is secondary to the artwork's narrative. The relationship between these two artistic modes was made increasingly complex in the modern period, when artists' efforts to depict men and women were marked by fragmentation, pictorial distortion, and abstraction. Exhibit on display from Feb. 3 through June 4, 2017. Event #18348 |   Report Update   |   Submit An Event   |   Shop Amazon


Sal Taylor Kydd + Megan Magill - PhoPa Gallery

132 Washington Avenue
Portland, Maine 04101
Phone: (207) 517-0200

          

Mar 08 thru Apr 08, 2017. Momentary Certainties features work by Megan Magill and Sal Taylor Kydd. Megan Magill will exhibit work from her recent project, My Business is Circumference, in which she created one of a kind works on paper by pushing dry mediums, such as powdered graphite and chalk pastels, through a photographically exposed silkscreen. Sal Taylor Kydd will show platinum palladium photographs that capture passing moments in the natural world, expressing both a sense of place and discovery. Both artists think of the photographic object as a "keepsake of human experience" and hope that their work will prompt viewers to reflect on time, memory, and the fleeting moments of our passing lives. Through working in alternative processes, such themes are embodied in the artistic practices in which the artists engage. Sal Taylor Kydd and Megan Magill are recent graduates of the MFA program at Maine Media College (MMC), in Rockport, Maine. The low-residency program at MMC is geared toward artists interested in engaging in a rigorous educational experience leading to the MFA degree in the media arts fields of photography, filmmaking and multimedia. Opening reception on Thursday, Mar. 9 at 5 p.m. Artist talk on Thursday, Apr. 6 at 5:30 p.m. Exhibit on display from Mar. 8 through Apr. 8.
