Painting is a means of feeling "living". Painting is the only art form except still photography which is without time. Music takes time to listen to and ends, writing takes time and ends, movies end, ideas and even sculpture take time. Painting does not. It never ends, it is the only thing that is both continuous and still.

This ain't no stitch 'n bitch... Four artists use fiber crafts to explore influences both historical and contemporary.
Eirene Efstathiou: No Direction Home + Bennett Morris: Part Seen Imagined Part
September 2 - 26, 2009
Eirene Efstathiou and Bennett Morris are interested in the epic spectacle of society and its ongoing deterioration. Each examines un-identified events with enormous collective meaning, futuristic or historical, apocalyptic or revolutionary, in a way that capitalizes on the limits and dilapidation of reality and perception.

The show will be supplemented by educational events discussing how the art scene continues to thrive in Maine. Be dazzled by the scope, innovation, and beauty of the "drawings" by a group of our favorite artists. An affirmation of the vitality and variety of the arts scene in Portland!

Aaron T Stephan - Taken Out of Context
Whitney Art Works is pleased to announce another blockbuster from Aaron T Stephan.
With his usual mix of humor, and beauty, new work by
Aaron T Stephan will inhabit Whitney Art Works for the month of June.
Working with plaster, steel, plastic, and wood, Stephan tweaks notions of art history and geography. Both monumental and minuscule, these sculptures reference the sublime while playing with scale and are produced with remarkable craft.
June 3rd - 27th
Artist Talk by Jaime Gili
Gili's work is an invigorating lens, a personable sheen that offers its glossiness to society and activates the urban. It contains the slick, hopeful zing of Futurism or Rayonnism and brims with a romantic wish for the world that is conversely anachronistic and fresh.

Irene Stapleford at Walker Terrace
"Everyday objects re-imagined or familiar nursery rhymes re-cast invoke a daydreamy surreality."
Five dynamic artists build, bend, fracture and layer.
May 8th - 30th

Leon Johnson + Creative Material Group Invites You To Dinner
April 30, May 01-02
A thoughtful exhibition in which three contemporary artists wrangle personal and historical concepts by producing beautiful and formal works on paper, sculpture, and paintings. This show is a lesson in observation and the special personalization which art can portray of elements that are familiar to us all.
April 3rd - 25th
Like falling down a rabbit hole, where Alice swims about in her own tears, and learns that the lobsters she very much likes to eat dance wild quadrilles across the sea, Wonderland presents a vibrant fantasy darkly tinged with the consequence of being human.
