Artists Opening Reception

Saturday, March 30 –

Event Time: 2:00-5:00 p.m.

Friends of Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge
9 Water St, Rockland

Come to the opening reception for a unique collection of nature-inspired art. Post-Morphean Dreamwork is composed of the images collected in a dream journal over several years, then made tangible using ethically-sourced taxidermy, discarded materials, plaster casting, and clay sculpture. Alexandrea Farquhar is a 4th year undergraduate at College of the Atlantic where she studies natural history and museum exhibit prep. Post-Morphean Dreamwork began as her senior project. St. George middle school students in grades six, seven and eight will be exhibiting their nature-inspired artwork. These talented students are all passionate about art and some participated in the Young Artists Program last fall. Georges River Land Trust will be exhibiting a sampling of Langlais’ artwork that are part of the permanent collection at the Langlais Sculpture Preserve in Cushing. While known for his larger than life sculptures, a dozen of which are at the Preserve, Langlais also has a large body of work that includes drawings, and paintings in watercolor and oil. Some of the works on display for this show are available on short-term loan for public display as part of the Land Trust’s Langlais Loan Program. This art will be on display for the month of April.
