New year, new exhibition. Three of my photos will be included in the annual Maine College of Art staff exhibition at the June Fitzpatrick Gallery at MECA. The work is a little different from what I typically show, but it didn’t feel like either the right venue or time to show the still untitled hate crime/speech work.
I also designed the postcard. Over Christmas I noticed it was upside down on my mother’s refrigerator, always a good sign. The image is from the inside of the Porteous building in the 30’s or 40’s, I also added the store’s logo. It’s a bit of an homage to Warhol’s purposely, mis-registered screen prints (like it wasn’t obvious).
It is First Friday that night, so make the rounds and load up on free wine, cheese and crackers – oh yeah, and see some artwork too.
