Cynthia Winings Gallery presents Heather Lyon’s “The Weight of Water “

The Weight of Water
A Performance by Heather Lyon

Friday, October 1, 6:30PM

Heather Lyon’s work is a visual and movement-based inquiry into the miraculous. “The Weight of Water ” is a durational performance, an interaction between her body and 75 pounds of dark blue sand. The weight of the sand corresponds to the weight of the water content of Lyon’s body and is a manifestation of the unknowable, the void. Lyon invites us to become empathetic witnesses to her contemplative movement of and with the sand. The slippage of sand vibrates and expands into the void and from that emerges pattern and form. This work is in resonance with her recent paintings of whirlpools, a response to the pull of the sublime.

The Weight of Water will be performed on one evening, Friday October 1, 6:30 pm.

Reservations are necessary, we have limited available seating.
Masks will be required, thank you for your understanding.

Heather Lyon is a performance, video and installation artist born and based in Blue Hill, Maine. Combining her interest in the meanings of materials (ranging from rebar to sequins to milk to ash) and the question of the human body, she investigates relationships and the ways in which we negotiate longing, loss, desire, and vulnerability. She holds a BFA (2002) and MFA (2004) from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work has recently been exhibited and performed at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Rockland, Maine; SPACE, Portland, Maine; Cove Street Gallery, Portland, Maine; TEMPOart, Portland, Maine; The Danforth Gallery, University of Maine Augusta, Augusta, Maine; Cynthia Winings Gallery, Blue Hill, Maine; Zaratan, Lisbon, Portugal; “The Picnic Pavilion” a parallel project to the 58th Venice Biennale, Venice, Italy; The State Silk Museum, Tbilisi, Georgia and at Artisterium 10, Tbilisi, Georgia, for which she received an Emergency Artist Grant from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, New York.

Stonington featured at Blue Hill Bay Gallery 

The early summer show at the Blue Hill Bay Gallery features two devoted artists whose recent works evoke the rugged beauty of Stonington and the Maine Coast.

Phil Laughlin has just brought new works to the gallery following a scouting trip to the Blue Hill Peninsula, where he was especially impressed with Stonington. Laughlin trained at the Worcester Museum Art School and began to explore modern realism as a young artist in New York City, where he studied at the Art Students League. He has lived and painted in New England since 1986. 

Bonnie LaBelle concentrates her talents on painting Downeast Maine from her home in Machias, down the coast to Acadia, Deer Isle and Stonington. She paints with the authenticity and authority of one who lives here year-round. LaBelle studied oil painting with Edward Harrigan of Rockland, who was mentored by Paul Strisik. 

This show can be seen during the entire month of June at the Blue Hill Bay Gallery on Main Street in Blue Hill. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, email peter@bluehillbaygallery.com or call 207-374-5773.

Spring Greetings from the Cynthia Winings Gallery

 

For the first time, in a while, I am feeling hopeful. It feels so great to be able to say just that much. To begin to experience some enthusiasm for the future; have a sense that, perhaps, we might be together with greater comfort, and with our hearts more open to inspiration and beauty.

While the signs of spring are everywhere, new artworks are also emerging from the artists’ studios and I am happy to share them with you here. I have been astounded at what has been produced through this challenging stretch. Inspiration can’t be stopped. Artists continue to dig deep, and reveal greater and greater truths. With great enthusiasm, I am looking forward to a new season at the gallery. For you, I wish the opportunity to come and stand in front of this years work. I hope to see you this summer.

The gallery will be welcoming visitors for the new season on Tuesday, May 25, 2021.
