“Curator’s Choice” opens at CRAFT Gallery, finishing the 2019 season with a selection of the finest work by gallery artists. Included are select pieces from the ZEN show and new work chosen by CRAFT owner and curator Barbara Michelena. Her choices are based on visual beauty, spiritual uplift and excellence of craftsmanship.
Included in the show is “Slice of Life” a charcoal drawing by Lissa Hunter recently exhibited in her curated “Darkness and the Light” show at ICA in Portland. It embodies the experience of living, tracing the fading of light as a metaphor for life’s journey.
Lynn Duryea, Joe Hemes and Jan Owen, whose work is in the “Darkness and the Light “ show are also in “Curator’s Choice”. Tim Van Campen’s “Moon”, a computer generated panel on aluminum illustrates stillness, meditation and the power the artist has in expressing the spirit of Zen philosophy.
The October 4th opening coincides with Maine Craft Weekend, American Craft Week and Rockland’s First Friday Art Walk. CRAFT is located in the courtyard at 12 Elm Street in Rockland.
