It’s officially summer! While things slow down in many other parts of the country, in Maine everything is speeding up. That’s especially true for Maine museums, whose big summer shows are opening this month, and for the writers who cover them.
With this post, I’m sharing just two of many pieces appearing between now and September. Click on the article titles or the thumbnails for full pdf versions of the articles.
“O’Keeffe, Stettheimer, Torr, Zorach: Women Modernists in New York,” Antiques & The Arts Weekly, July 1, 2016. A feature about the new exhibition at my former stomping grounds, the Portland Museum of Art.
“Painting in Verbs: Maine Literary and Artistic Traditions,” Southern Maine Art Guide, 2016. Featuring Maine museums like the Sarah Orne Jewett House, the Ogunquit Museum of American Art, the Brick Store Museum, and another former workplace for me: the Dyer Library/Saco Museum.
(Note that if you’re interested in Childe Hassam—he and Celia Thaxter are a big part of the Art Guide article—you’ve also got to check out the upcoming show at the Peabody Essex Museum [which I’ll be writing about soon for Antiques & The Arts Weekly!] and look into the amazing Shoals Marine Laboratory on Appledore Island, which offers Hassam-themed day trips.)
There’s more to come! Look for more articles soon from Antiques & The Arts Weekly, Maine Women Magazine, and maybe a surprise or two. See you out there this summer—I’ll be the one kayaking with my laptop.
