FARMINGTON — Senior art students at the University of Maine at Farmington announce the opening of their thesis exhibition, Company Picnic, at the UMF Art Gallery and the Flex Space Gallery in the Emery Community Arts Center. The senior show will run from April 21 through May 14. The exhibit is free and open to the public. An opening reception will be held from 5-7 p.m., on Thursday, April 21.

Company Picnic features the work of six talented artists: Luke Deems of Friendship, Bridget Flaherty of Plymouth, Mass., Jill Gingras of Jay, Tonner Hann of Naples, Channa Schroff of Fayette and Spencer Shaw of North Anson.

The exhibition is a diverse compilation of work encompassing the relationships of culture, nature and technology; the exposure of the intimacy of the human psyche; the identity of things and people, hopeless power structures, relationships between design, seduction and disgust, and perception and expression.

The 2016 senior art exhibit is sponsored by the UMF Department of Sound, Performance and Visual Inquiry and the Emery Community Arts Center.

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.

The UMF Art Gallery is located at 246 Main Street in Farmington, behind the UMF Admissions Office. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 12 to 4 p.m. and by appointment.
