We are pleased to announce a new exhibition going up next week, 'Objects with History' featuring mixed-media works by Helene Farrar and Amanda Jones.
In her series, 'The Retelling of the Past', Farrar juxtaposes collected photographs from the far past with new "spaces". Hélène Farrar has a Master of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts from Goddard College. She is an adjunct professor of art at the University of Maine at Augusta. Amanda Jones is primarily self-taught. Her work is genuine in its use of objects from the past often with significance personal to the artist.
The show opens Friday, May 8th with an opening reception to be held that evening from 5-8pm in conjunction with Art 'Round Town. All are welcome! The artists will be present and refreshments will be served.
