2019 TOTALLY TUESDAY TALKS:
Tuesday, June 25
Arthur B. Davies’s legacy is evident in his great grandson Mac Cosgrove-Davies’s archiving, catalog, and study of the family collection. He was the co-curator of the 2013 Modern Movement exhibition at the Maier Museum. In addition, Cosgrove-Davies is a self-taught photographer–practicing historic photographic processes–with his works in the permanent collections of major institutions.
Tuesday, July 2
James Welling is internationally acclaimed for his color-filtered and digitally manipulated photographs and film. His work often focuses on locations that were historically or personally meaningful, including Ogunquit’s Perkins Cove. Welling’s Seacape is a recent joint acquisition by the Portland Museum of Art and OMAA, and his work is represented in the permanent collections of major institutions.
Tuesday, July 9
Isadora Duncan Dance Company
Under the artistic direction of Lori Belilove, the all-female company performs authentic modern dance that highlights the unique qualities of Isadora Duncan’s repertoire. From the early lyrical pieces to the tragic solos, each performance has a purity of style and excellence of movement.
Tuesday, July 16
Libby Bischof explores American society through the lens of history––and the lens of a camera. A 19th c. American cultural historian, Bischof specializes in the history of photography, particularly in Maine. Her research includes Maine history, modernism, New England women writers and the Lost Generation and Ogunquit art colony.
Tuesday, July 23
Contemporary artist Sebastian Martorana incisively carves stone sculptures which traverse a range of subjects. Working primarily in marble, Martorana charges the oldest of artistic disciplines with the concerns of a contemporary generation. His work was featured in the Renwick Gallery’s 40 Under 40 show and is now part of the permanent collection of the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
Tuesday, July 30
Cig Harvey in conversation with Joshua Bodwell
Cig Harvey’s work spans photography, video, mixed media and the written word. Harvey’s creative practice explores the physical and emotional boundaries of the senses. Eating Flowers: Sensations of Cig Harvey is her first solo museum exhibition in the United States. Her work is represented in the permanent collections of major institutions. Cig and Joshua Bodwell, Editorial Director of David R. Godine Publishing will discuss her work and the current exhibition at OMAA.
Tuesday, August 6
Antoinette Prien Schultze has been carving since 1969. Her sculptures have evolved from realistic to abstraction, with a philosophical focus and medium of expression remaining constant. Schultze creates forms that are visually beautiful and comfortable in the landscape, exhibiting strength along with the frailty that she sees in existence. Schultze will discuss her work and the recent conservation of “Life Entwined” at OMAA.
Tuesday, August 13
OMAA Associate Curator & Collections Manager Ruth Greene-McNally
