A panel discussion in Rockport is tied to a juried exhibit organized by the Atrium Gallery at Lewiston-Auburn College.

ROCKPORT – The Center for Maine Contemporary Art will host a panel discussion focusing on the current exhibition, “The Figure Revealed,” at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 1, at the center.

The exhibition was organized by the Atrium Gallery at Lewiston-Auburn College in an effort to promote working from a live model.

It was on display at the L-A campus in the fall. The exhibition is a statewide juried exhibition of work created in life drawing groups.

“These small groups exist around the state, somewhat in isolation, their members working quietly with focus and dedication,” wrote Robyn Holman, director of exhibitions at the Atrium Gallery, in the exhibition brochure.

“Since most work created n these groups is not intended for exhibition but as practice, we have an opportunity to enter the private world of artist and model and to better understand the tradition they continue.”

Speaking about drawing, painting, and sculpting from a live model will be panel members Anthony Shostak, Nancy Morgan-Barnes, Peter Fogg, Lee Silverton and Jack Montgomery.

All but Montgomery have work in this exhibit. The panel will be moderated by Genetta McLean.

There will be a reception following the panel discussion.

The Center for Maine Contemporary Art is at 162 Russell Ave. in Rockport Village. The panel discussion is free with admission to the center. The center’s current exhibitions, “Norman Tinker and Dudley Zopp: Discovering the Physical,” “The Figure Revealed” and “Hidden Words” will be on display through Feb.29.
