Maine Media Gallery is pleased to announce The Door Between featuring work by Valerie Carrigan, Tillman Crane, Susan Davens, Brenton Hamilton, Jeannie Hutchins, Sal Taylor Kydd, Nancy Loeber, Jim Nickelson, Jason Philbrook, Anneli Skaar, Richard Reitz Smith, Alan Vlach, and Deanna Whitman. The exhibition will be on view from August 14-October 6. An Opening Reception will be held on Wednesday, August 16, 5-6:30pm.
The Door Between features work with an emphasis on the handmade. In this digital age, images are immediate and ubiquitous--we are constantly bombarded with visual information. Both book arts and historic process photography celebrate a return to the handmade. All of the work in this exhibition bears marks of the artist’s hand, and is as much about the process of making it as about the finished work itself. The Door Between spans a wide range of subject matter, artistic sensibilities, and personal visual taste, but is united by the handmade nature of the medium.
Carrigan, Loeber, Skaar, and Smith have all been Book Artists in Residence at Maine Media Workshops, which is an opportunity for emerging and practicing book artists, letterpress printers, and photographers combining word and image. It is designed to help the chosen artist complete their proposed project by providing studio space, funding, housing, and the support of a curious, interdisciplinary arts community.
