FARMINGTON —The University of Maine at Farmington presents “Five to Nine,” a thesis exhibition by UMF graduating senior art students. The show will run from April 13 to May 13, at both the UMF Art Gallery and the Emery Community Arts Center.
An opening reception at both venues is set for 5 to 7 p.m, Thursday, April 13. The exhibits are free and open to the public.
Both galleries will showcase the work of James Corcoran from Upton; D.T. Shane Cynewski from Shirley, Mass.; Laura E. Dickey from Searsport; Gabrielle Ganiere from Berwick; Tim Stokes from Auburn and Corey Wallace from Poland Spring.
“Five to Nine” exhibits a collection of works that range conceptually through the humanization of strangers, deconstruction of nostalgia, the search for meaning, exploration of the uncanny, reflexivity of form and representation, and the exposure of consumption as an apathetic mechanism.
Mediums include photography, film, sculpture from found objects and fabrics, animation, and drawings that use charcoal, wood, paint and string. Together, this work creates an immersive environment that reintroduces the audience to the world they thought they knew.
The UMF Art Gallery is located at 246 Main St. Farmington, behind the UMF Admissions Office. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday, noon to 4 p.m. and by appointment. For more information or to make an appointment please contact Sarah Maline, UMF Art Gallery director, at [email protected] or 207-778-1062
The Emery Community Arts Center is located on Academy Street, adjacent to UMF Merrill Hall. The Emery Flex Space Gallery is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
