Maine is known for its great art and artists. Here’s a chance to learn about several local artists through an informal ZOOM presentation about their work and creative process. We’re offering this program in cooperation with Markings Gallery.
Susan Perrine constructs introspective textiles ranging from handheld to wearable to inhabitable. Her works may include paper, horsehair, or twigs. Beginning as a weaving apprentice, Perrine later learned to use water- and electric-powered Jacquard and Dobby looms. Currently her seven-foot-tall, woven twig garden lamp is in the window at Markings Gallery.
Wayne Robbins has been sculpting sea creatures for more than forty- five years from wood sustainably harvested in Maine. His works incorporates anatomical accuracy and realistic poses and are enhanced by the color and texture of the woods as well as the natural, clear coating that he has perfected over the years. His whale carvings can be found on walls and display cases from coast to coast, in several foreign countries, in an Oceanarium and a museum.
