In October 2017, the Portland Museum of Art announced their participating artists for the 2018 Biennial exhibition. The Biennial will be open January 26 to May 30, 2018.
This 10th Biennial is intended to highlight artists with meaningful connections to Maine, with a focus this year on the influence and presence of Wabanaki artists. The PMA chose Nat May, former Executive Director of SPACE Gallery, as the guest curator for the exhibition.
Maine College is Art is proud to have a number of artists from our community featured in the exhibit. Congratulations to:
Gina Adams ’02, Stephen Benenson (Adjunct Instructor of Foundation), Anne Buckwalter MFA ’12, Jenny McGee Dougherty ’05, David Driskell Hon. DFA ’96, Daniel Minter (Assistant Instructor of Illustration), and Joshua Reiman (Assistant Professor of Sculpture and MFA).
“We’ve assembled a great group of people, of identities, and of histories to be represented. The value of the show is in the dialogues it will create, among the artworks selected and among the artists and viewers. I have learned something from each of the participating artists and I look forward to sharing their work with you” — Nat May
