SUMMER EXHIBIT
Eating Flowers: Sensations of Cig Harvey
Ogunquit Museum of American Art, 543 Shore Rd., Ogunquit, ME  207-646-4909.

For her first U.S. solo museum exhibit, multimedia Rockport artist Cig Harvey says she wanted to create a “riot of colors and smells,” an experience that goes beyond simple observation. Eating Flowers brings the outside into the gallery, with live plants and flowers intertwined among Harvey’s dreamy, ethereal photos, videos, letterpressed materials, and more. And the show extends the gallery outside, into the museum’s seaside gardens, where a 7-foot-long neon sign among the tulips declares “Eat Flowers,” reminding us that life’s richest moments employ all of our senses. — J.E.
