February 8, 2019 (Newswire.com) –
Folding screens were especially popular in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, serving typically as room dividers and often used by their owners to dress or undress behind, but have also been a more experimental form of artistic expression. Prominent artists, architects and designers in both Europe and America are among many who have explored the screen form.
Now, the Farnsworth Art Museum is celebrating this versatile piece of work by displaying many great works from local Maine artists in a new exhibition called The Screen Show. On Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019, the museum will open a juried exhibition of new works that explore the screen form. The Screen Show will be on display in the museum’s Rothschild Gallery from Feb. 9 through Sept. 22, 2019. The exhibition will include six new works selected by the jury for this show.
The Maine artists that have been selected by the jury are the following: industrial designer Allison Davis of Rockland, Maine; textile designer Gigi Aea of Camden, Maine, in collaboration with cabinet maker Owain Harris; artist and frame maker Johanna Moore of Farmingdale, Maine; graphic designer Laurie Downey of West Baldwin, Maine, in collaboration with woodworker Ryan Rhoades; assemblage artist Susan Levett of Tenants Harbor, Maine; and painter Alla Broeksmit of Brooklin, Maine.
