FARMINGTON — University of Maine at Farmington professor Sarah Maline will present Collecting Meiji-Era Prints: Modernism and Transformation on Sunday, Nov. 13.

The presentation will be at 5:30 p.m. in UMF’s North Dining Hall, in the Olsen Student Center, 111 South St. It’s free and open to the public.

Japanese wood block prints were the Pop Art of the Meiji period, and her collection shows a culture struggling against, and reacting with, the European modernism of the time.

Maline is an associate professor of art history at UMF. She teaches visual culture, modern and contemporary art, the history of photography, and Japanese art and film. She is the director of the UMF Art Gallery and the Water Bear Confabulum.

Her talk is the first of the 2016-17 series hosted by the Shiretown Bookers, the community friends of Mantor Library. This group of collectors and book lovers provides exhibitions and lectures throughout the year toward the goal of fostering the relationship between the university and the community.
