The Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA), in Rockland invites the public to attend the second in a series of Sunday Salon gallery talks related to the exhibition “Temporality: The Process of Time,” on January 5 at 3pm. Presenters will include exhibiting artists Caleb Charland, Clint Fulkerson, and Kate Russo. Each artist will share images and discuss how they use time as a material in their work.
Exploring ideas of repetition, duration, and process, the exhibition “Temporality | The Process of Time,” looks at how contemporary artists are using time as a means of making. The exhibition explores the question of what is time, and how do we measure and give value to it? One certainty is that artists need time to make their work and viewers need time to look. In a society that’s constantly on the move, the artists included in the exhibition are asking the viewer to slow down and consider the relevance of time as material.
Caleb Charland (Brewer, ME) uses the photographic process to question visual possibilities within the natural laws of the world. His practice is based in wonder, a state of mind somewhere between knowledge and uncertainty.
Clint Fulkerson (Portland, ME) creates drawings that are the result of contemplating the relationships between space, time, matter, and energy. His murals are created using pre-determined limitations and visual analogies.
Kate Russo (Portland, ME) explores the use of color as narrative in her paintings. She borrows the color palettes of well-known, historical artists in an effort to convey an artist’s character through color.
Sunday Salons are free to CMCA members, others with admission. Participants are encouraged to stay following the talk for refreshments and further discussion. The next Sunday Salon in the series will take place on January 26, 2020. For more information, please visit cmcanow.org.
