October 25 - December 14

Pairing Iceblink, a project by artist Carrie Scanga, with the archival source materials from Marie Peary Stafford’s papers that inspired Scanga’s work, this exhibit explores the personal and societal projections of spiritual aspirations onto the Arctic landscape. Stafford’s return to the land of her birth as an explorer in 1932 is documented in her journals and scrapbooks, the details of which inform Iceblink, work that follows Stafford’s gaze across the ice. During the opening, Cathleen Miller and Carrie Scanga will read passages from Stafford’s journal and related text to illuminate the prints and objects on display.
Opening reception Thursday, October 25 at 7pm.
Hosted by the Maine Women Writers Collection at University of New England, Portland Campus.
