Arts and Letters by the Sea: Cig Harvey
October 16 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Cig Harvey will discuss her body of work including the new, limited-edition book Eat Flowers (Two Ponds Press, 2021).
Cig Harvey (b.1973) is a British-born artist and writer living in Maine and working in large-format color photography and poetry. Rich in implied narrative, saturated in color, and deeply rooted in the natural world, her work is devoted to the topic of what it is to feel. In 2019, the Ogunquit Museum of American Art presented the exhibition, “Eating Flowers: The Sensational Artwork of Cig Harvey.”
Harvey has produced five books, including Blue Violet, published last year by Monacelli/Phaidon. Her photographs and books are in the permanent collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York; Museum of Fine Arts in Houston; the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland; and the International Museum of Photography and Film at the George Eastman House in Rochester. She is represented by galleries in Rockland, New York, Boston, Atlanta, Santa Barbara, and Zurich, and has exhibited at international art fairs, including Paris Photo, Art Miami, and AIPAD in New York, for the past fifteen years.
In 2021, Harvey was awarded the Maine in America Award from the Farnsworth Art Museum. Most recently, Eat Flowers won the Fine Press Book Associations Judge’s Choice Award for Best Book in Show at the Manhattan Fine Press Book Fair in 2022.
Harvey is a member of the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) and the Society of Professional Journalism (SPJ).
Reception begins at 4:00pm, and talk begins at 5:00pm.
