Opening with an artist reception on Friday, August 5 (5:00-8:00pm), Keeping Track of Time is a solo exhibition by Philip Brou at 3S Artspace in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

In addition to being an educator at MECA&D, Brou is an artist and amateur runner. During 2021 he brought his studio practice and running together; making a drawing to document each time he went running. The artist views the project as a type of clock that processes days by both running and slowing down; creating a very specific way of keeping track of time. The metronomic rhythm of running one day and drawing the next stitched together a time that felt otherwise fractured.

The exhibition presents all 197 drawings, as well as a selection of watercolor paintings, and will remain on view until October 2.

Philip Brou would like to thank Maine College of Art & Design for their generous support of Keeping Track of Time through the Hildreth Fund for Faculty Development.
