The Harlow Presents “Sasson Soffer: Monumental Dream” Art Exhibition

HALLOWELL, MAINE — The Harlow, in partnership with the Sasson Soffer Foundation, is pleased to present a survey of work by artist Sasson Soffer (b. 1925 Baghdad, Iraq – d. 2009, New York, NY). Sasson Soffer, Monumental Dream offers an illuminating overview of Soffer’s production from the late 1950s to 1990s, including a range of works on paper, paintings, sculptures and documental material. Interwoven throughout both floors of the The Harlow, the exhibition explores Soffer’s sculptures as an effort to turn his dreams into reality, whereas his paintings and works on paper attempt to turn reality into dreams, fantasies, and wish fulfillment. Sasson Soffer: Monumental Dream is on view March 30 – April 28, 2018 at 100 Water Street in Hallowell with a public opening reception on Friday, March 30, 5-7pm.

“I had a dream of the accidental elegance of nature. I had a dream of lolling, twisting shapes. I had a dream of amoebae and insects and a prehistoric garden, the paradise of another world. I had a dream in which I fell asleep and dreamed of machines in motion, and then I awoke, still dreaming, and sketched the sweep of their dumb automation. I had a dream of metal growing from the ground, as plants grow in the earth, as crystals grow in caverns. I had a dream of color and rust. I had a dream of ice and silt. I dreamed all these dreams, and in dreaming them I scooped them from the abyss of my mind and made them conscious and true.” J.C. Hallman

Sasson Soffer was an Iraqi Arab of Jewish descent. Soffer was compelled to leave Iraq during the events surrounding the creation of the State of Israel, post–World War II. In 1948 Soffer went into hiding, ultimately escaping to Iran, then to the United States via Israel. Between 1950 – 1954, Soffer was enrolled at CUNY Brooklyn College in Brooklyn, New York. There he studied under various artists including Ad Reinhardt, Burgoyne Diller and Mark Rothko. Rothko would eventually become a lifelong friend and mentor. Soffer dedicated the early part of his career to abstract painting. He had his first solo exhibit in 1958 at the Artist’s Gallery in New York City. He was also featured in Art in America’s New Talent Issue in 1962.

In 1956, Soffer was invited to visit Maine by a group of early Skowhegan artists, among them the sculptor Bernard Langlais, with whom he became good friends. Soffer came to enjoy his time in Maine and purchased property in Somerville as a summer home. The Somerville house turned out to have a leaning chimney and when Soffer went to steel fabricator T.W. Dick Co. in Gardiner, Maine to inquire about a metal brace, owner Ralph Dick suggested that since Soffer was an artist he should try to make the brace himself. Ralph Dick died in 1968 and Myrtle Willey took over the mill. From 1968 to 1976, Mrs. Willey served as Executive Vice President of T.W. Dick Co. and, in 1976, became President. It was at T.W. Dick Co., where Soffer was introduced to welding and steel fabrication. For over 30 years Soffer collaborated with T.W. Dick Co. in the production of his large scale sculptures. For Soffer, Myrtle Willey represented continuity and continued opportunity. In 1983, the University of Maine at Augusta staged Soffer’s exhibition of monumental outdoor steel sculptures, which was organized by Robert Katz who is currently Professor of Art in the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Maine at Augusta.

In the early 1960s, Soffer began to focus more on three-dimensional works and over the years perfected the art of inducing industry to play a critical role in his artistic efforts. In doing so, Soffer was able to work with steel yards in Philadelphia and Indianapolis, a ceramics factory in Japan, and a textile mill in France where they produced his tapestries.

Soffer’s work has been included in group exhibitions at the Whitney Museum, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Massachusetts; Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut; OK Harris, New York; and Carnegie International. Soffer’s solo exhibitions include presentations at the Betty-Parsons Gallery, New York; Poindexter Gallery, New York; John Daniels Gallery, New York; Portland Museum of Fine Arts, Portland, Maine; and Galerie Birch, Copenhagen, Denmark. Public collections in which Soffer’s work is represented include the Whitney Museum, New York; The Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, Ohio; Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indiana; Chase Manhattan Bank, New York; and Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, New York.

This exhibit is presented by The Harlow in association with The Sasson Soffer Foundation and

In 1998, the Sasson Soffer Foundation was incorporated as a non-profit organization to promote patronage of sculpture and painting; to sponsor art exhibits; and to advance public interest in the works of Sasson Soffer.

The Harlow is supported by Camden National Bank, the City of Hallowell, Kennebec Savings Bank, The Liberal Cup and The Maine House, the Roxanne Quimby Foundation and by our members. Season Sponsors for 2018 are Book Orchard Press, Capitol Dental Care, Chris Walters Productions, Doug & Melinda Jennings, Eaton Peabody Attorneys at Law, Scrummy Afters Candy Shoppe, Slates Restaurant and Target Electric Corporation. Programming is funded in part by a Partnership Grant from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Art.

Harlow Gallery Features Two Exhibitions

Seven

SEVEN | Jan. 26 – Feb. 24, 2018

Harlow Gallery presents SEVEN – their last art exhibition at 160 Water Street in Hallowell, where the gallery has existed since its opening in 1963, before moving down the street to their new home at 100 Water Street. SEVEN highlights the work of Maine abstract painters Emily Blake Blaschke, Jenny LaMacchia Campbell, Alicia Ines Ethridge, Celeste June Henriquez, Doreen Nardone, Brenda Overstrom and Donald M. Peterson.

SEVEN is a group of Maine based painters. The group emerged out of a Maine College of Art abstract painting course with Michel Droge This exhibit offers viewers an assortment of abstract painting styles. Each painter has created a unique language to express their visions of the world around them and their experiences in it.

“We are a group of seven abstract painters working in Maine. We meet once a month at each other’s studios to present and discuss new works in progress. As a group of abstract painters, we understand each other remarkably well. This coherence comes from our common fascination and openness to process. Our gatherings are brave, warm and direct. We value self-reflection and enter into dialogue about how to let go of things that get in the way of our full creative potential. We urge one another to have the courage to explore and experiment, to fabricate systems that guide one’s process and then break those rules, to take outrageous creative risks and make mistakes, to risk failure in pursuit of new ideas and new ground. As abstract painters, we rely on intuition and trust the process to lead us. We are guided by what shows up on the surface. This includes messy beautiful swathes of color, detailed imagery, ugly and pretty, precise and carefully constructed, meaningful and meaningless, and quick or dirty. All scenarios are valued: such as painting when we’re inspired or tired, angry or blissful, agitated or confused. We are committed to maintaining the community we have created. We are committed to each other, to encouraging and carrying each other through painters block, busy times, and troubled waters. We are committed to manifesting our truest selves in our work and to valuing an honest and forthright approach to the act of painting and critiquing.”

Harlow Gallery is Expanding!

Harlow 1

Harlow Gallery just signed a lease for 100 Water Street, which is the large dark-red building at the intersection of Water, Winthrop and Front Streets. The board and staff are very enthusiastic about the potential the new space provides for expanded programming and increased visibility. The building includes two floors with:

  • more than double the linear wall footage for exhibitions
  • dedicated workshop and meeting space
  • a real office instead of a converted closet
  • an accessible bathroom on each floor
  • a full kitche
  • more storage

Convenient parking is close by at the waterfront. Plans are in the works to make the building entrance and both floors accessible in the near future.

This move has been a long time coming. Over the past decade, the Harlow Gallery has gradually outgrown our current space both for our programs and in its ability to support practical staffing needs. Our programs and our earned income are limited by the fact that everything has to take place in one room of less than 800 square feet. Our office space only allows one staff member to work at a time, storage space is inadequate and the space is not ADA compliant.

Harlow Gallery leadership has been discussing options to meet these challenges since 2007. We have steadily built our brand over the past decade, proving year after year our ability to craft high quality programs with statewide impact. We are a cultural destination and resource for local people and tourists, drawn by our growing reputation for unique, innovative and inclusive exhibitions of Maine art. While we love the old Harlow Gallery, it is time to make this change. Watch for news of an open house celebration coming soon! For more information visit harlowgallery.org or Follow Us On Facebook

The event, held at 160 Water Street in Hallowell, features two women well known to Maine poetry: Anna Wrobel and Marita O’Neill. Refreshments are served, and a $3 donation is appreciated at the door to support operating costs at the Gallery.

Both life-long, dedicated teachers, Wrobel and O’Neill present their passion for and knowledge of life, love, and human struggle through spoken word. Their poetry shares experiences that have shaped them into strong, loving, and impacting women who value activism through peace.

Anna Wrobel is an American historian, teacher, and poet. Marengo Street was published by Moon Pie Press in 2012; a second collection is slated for 2018. Educator, scholar of Holocaust Studies, Anna extracts global history and personal narratives into poetic forms in manuscript, Sparrow Feathers, from which her presentation, “Second Generation/First Person,” is derived. Poems are used by history and literature teachers in several states, also in Poland, Germany, Israel and Palestine. Poems, historical essays and critical reviews appear in venues including Cafe Review, Lilith, Off the Coast, Holocaust Human Rights Center of U-Maine, and Jewish Currents (contributing writer). Anna curates Lowry’s Lodge, Maine’s second longest running feature poetry series (after Harlow).

Marita O’Neill is a poet, teacher, and bird admirer. She has lived in Maine for over 20 years and originally hails from the not-so-mean streets of Philadelphia. She earned her MFA in poetry from Vermont College. She is currently teaching high school English to seniors and sophomores at Yarmouth High School. She has published two chapbooks: Love Dogs by Strikestudio Press and Evidence of Light by Moon Pie Press. Her poem “Crow Calling” was recently published in the Deep Water series through the Maine Sunday Telegram and her poem “Dragon” in the Maine Arts Magazine. Lately, she’s exploring what it means, in Pema Chodrin’s words, “to refrain”: “the practice of not immediately filling up space just because there’s a gap.

The Harlow Gallery located in downtown historic Hallowell is home to the Kennebec Valley Art Association, a membership based 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to connecting and celebrating art, artists and community in central Maine since 1963.

“Androscoggin River, February” by Robin Brooks | painted paper collage | 22″x30″ | private collection

On Sunday, March 12, 2-4pm March’s Second Sunday workshop, “Drawing with Torn-Paper Shapes”, is lead by artist Robin Brooks. Celebrate spring; come create and experiment with paper collage. All ages and experience levels are welcome. No registration necessary.

“Drawing with Torn-Paper Shapes” comes right out of the Silberstein-Storfer Jones book titled “Doing Art Together: Discovering the Joys of Appreciating and Creating Art as Taught at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s famous parent-child workshop.” Robin states, “I love the idea of parents and children having the chance to work in the same room. Ideally there will be a parent table and a children’s table so there can be both proximity and independence.”

Mark your calendars and look forward to a variety of activities on the second Sunday of every month from 2-4PM at the Harlow Gallery. These events are free and open to the public. Some materials are provided, but participants are encouraged to bring their own as well. These workshops are opportunities to both try something new and sharpen old skills – they are open to everyone; form beginners to professional artists and everyone in between. SECOND SUNDAYS brings artists and art lovers together to enjoy the process of making art as well as looking at art and discussing it. Most events are perfect for families, and all ages are welcome. Children under 10 MUST be accompanied by an adult. For more information call

Harlow Gallery presents The Venn Project

Untitled-745x425

On View: February 3 – March 11, 2017 | Opening Reception: Friday, February 3, 5-7pm

The Harlow Gallery presents The Venn Project, featuring the work of Pamela Hetherly, Anita Morrissey, and Nancy Keenan Barron. The Venn Project is on view February 3 – March 11, 2017 with an opening reception on Friday, February 3, from 5-7pm. Both the exhibition and the opening reception are free and open to the public.

The three artists came together in the spirit of the Venn diagram: what they share, what they don’t.  Each artist claims one circle as her own and shares a piece of that circle with the other two. (A Venn diagram is a concept developed by John Venn in 1880.   He used overlapping or non-overlapping circles to show relationships.  Where the circles overlap, something is shared or in common.  Where the circles do not overlap, items are different.)

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 9.07.23 PM

Eighteen months ago artists Anita Morrissey, Pamela Hetherly and Nancy Keenan Barron began meeting regularly to paint together from life.  They explain their process as follows:

We took notes of our similarities and differences.  As the months passed we observed the others’ ways of working, challenged each other, and broadened our thought processes.  We observed how our individual practices changed and evolved from the influence of the others.  The goal of the project was to notice what worked, to try new things, and to support each other in this process.

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 9.07.46 PM

Early on in the project, it became clear that one large shared, overlapping piece in the Venn diagram for all three artists was the Harlow Gallery. We first met each other at the Harlow, we are all longtime members and have all benefited greatly from the Harlow community.

The artists invite the viewer to take note of the similarities, the differences and the changes that took place in their work during their 18-month-long project.

Participants will have the experience of working with foam, rubber, wood and linoleum blocks learning the different qualities of each material.
