Wellness Connection
685 Congress Street (Behind Local 188)
The Wellness Connection is hosting an open house at its Portland dispensary. Curious about the benefits of medical cannabis and CBD? Come tour the dispensary and learn about the many benefits of nature's best medicine. On display for the month of July is Ann Tracy who will be showing a variety of work created digitally based on her photography. You'll see some of her early work from the Power Series as well as selected digital woodcut prints and photographs from Maine to Cuba. Tracy calls herself a "Digital Alchemist" because she takes imagery which has one meaning and combines it with other imagery to create new meaning for the viewer. And she doesn't subscribe to just one interpretation, as she feels that everyone brings their own stories to the images. Her fine art has been exhibited from Japan to Maui to New York City to Spain and Budapest, Hungary. She was a 2014, 2015 and 2016 finalist in the Julia Margaret Cameron competition and was invited to exhibit at the 3rd Photographic Biennale in Malaga, Spain, as well as the 4th Photographic Biennale this fall in Berlin.

Vena's Fizz House
"My work is about discovery. A resident of Maine for twenty years, it was only about five years ago that I began to learn of and appreciate the natural wonders of the state. From the unparalleled alpine zone of Katahdin to the rugged Acadian shoreline, from the sandy beaches of Kittery to the seaside cliffs of Lubec, Maine boasts a vast catalog of treasure. Photography has piqued an interest and curiosity of my surroundings and I would like to believe my work might do the same for the viewer." Eric is a photographer based in Portland, Maine, who enjoys creating landscape and seascape images. From the alpine climate of New Hampshire’s White Mountains to the rugged and wild Maine coastline, he has an insatiable desire to explore and document his surroundings - always with camera in hand. His work has been included in Down East Magazine, Maine Camping Guide, Visit Portland Maine visitor’s guide, and now the Portland First Friday Art Walk.

Innovative Techniques - Salazar Fineberg Family Community Room Letter to Sun: Land of Water – Edwige Charlot Spiegel Gallery Ebb & Flow La Vida Judia Contemporanea en Cuba– Linda J. Hirsch Third Floor Sanctuary - Photography Curator - Nanci Kahn Roland Salazar Rose: “Roots,” finds Salazar expressing in paint and text his quest for knowledge and understanding of his family ancestry: his Norwegian, Scotch/Irish & German roots: unearthing the hidden past. “Solar Flares & Salazar,” is an art/science collaboration; a ‘full-dome’ projection at the Emera Astronomy Center, USMO. The paintings selected are part of the eleven in his solar series, accompanied by the video from the planetarium public shows. “Land, Sea & Sky: Maine 2012-18” He writes: “I resided in Mexico over three decades bridging the 20th and 21st centuries. I returned to Maine in 2012 for personal reasons where I established as a goal for my paintings to seek to express Maine’s true essence. For I paint ‘Maine’ as unforgiving, the land, sea and sky as uncompromising, demanding your daily awareness, and testing your ability to live with nature as a constant in your life.” Edwige Charlot: Letters to Sun: Land of Water are new works by artist printmaker Edwige Charlot. This new body of work explores how, physically and culturally, both Jewish and Black ancestries were carried by water. Charlot uses the concepts of print to insight our interconnectedness within the diasporas. Her matrix-centered practice aims to recollect and record a heritage, identity, and lineage. Letters to Sun: Land of Water is an ode to this empyrean and unspecified place where we came to be. At the center of these works is how darkness came to be from light and where the land rose from water. Edwige Charlot was born in Paris, France, of Haitian heritage. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking from the Maine College of Art. She lives in Providence, RI. Linda J. Hirsh: “What I always wanted was to have my work in a museum” said Stu Nudelman, in a Seacoastonline.com review, on the occasion of his 80th birthday. Stu was a well-known photographer in southern Maine and beyond. He was an art critic as well as a photography teacher in the summer community of Ogunquit for many years. Nudelman was inspired at age 8, when Life Magazine came out with its first issue. ‘The cover was mind boggling to me”, he said “It was the Hoover Dam photographed by Margaret Bourke-White.” That one photograph led to a long life of investigating photography’s many avenues including photojournalism, portraiture, and fine art abstractions. The first part of this exhibit is his abstract color photographs, zooming in on life’s little details. The second section shows his series of portraits of artists and their work, which he photographed over many years.

Congress Square Park
Stop by Congress Square Park from 6-8pm during July First Friday Art Walk for a free concert and dance party with Sabouyouma! Sabouyouma is a high energy 7-piece polyrhythmic groove machine that formed through ongoing musical relationships in Burlington, Vermont’s vibrant West-African dance and drumming scene. Sabouyouma is led by Guinean-born Ousmane Camara: the band’s front man, composer, and master Balafonist (the Balafon is a West-African marimba). In 2017 Sabouyouma opened for nationally touring acts like Xenia Rubinos (Brooklyn), Polyrhythmics (Seattle), Ikebe Shakedown (Brooklyn), and Jonathan Scales Fourchestra (Asheville, North Carolina), and has performed at music festivals that have become staples of the Vermont music scene: Burlington Discover Jazz Fest, Waking Windows, and The Manifestivus. Ousmane Camara is a 6th generation Griot: Historically, in West Africa, Griots passed messages from the king throughout the kingdom before pen and paper. Griots continue to play an important role in Africa today as poets, musicians, singers, and historians, preserving their ancient traditions through song. At the age of seven, Ousmane left his family’s home to go live with his teacher, Djeli Sana Camara. He would study and play balafon with his teacher for the next fifteen years. Ousmane continued to play throughout Guinea and traveled through nine other African countries. He has subsequently taught students from around the world.

This exhibit runs through July 26. Susan Roux, Maine artist and owner of the gallery, will be revealing a new body of work. She brings us a selection of oil paintings that range from delicately soft figurative females on the beach to bright and beautiful flowers dancing in sunlight. Her work is serene and uplifting. It is an expression of herself. Roux is passionate about capturing light. Whether indirectly through the fabric of a sundress or shining directly onto folds in the clothing, her depiction is glowing and filled with color. She has an impressionistic brushstroke that catches light as you walk by, causing a shimmering effect. With thin and thick passages of color, she pulls you into her paintings, inviting you to linger awhile and dream. Come see what she has been creating lately. Last year the July exhibition was shared with Igor Raikhline. The gallery is very sad to announce his passing on June 6, 2019. It’s mind boggling what a difference a year can make. He was so full of life then. Igor was an amazing artist with tremendous talent and a special gift to engage people and make them feel comfortable and at ease. He was world known and won countless competitions world wide. His sense of humor, his intelligence, his adorable accent and his prolific painting skills will be greatly missed. Please join us on July 5, as we will also be celebrating his life. Celebration rather than mourning is what he would have wanted. Join us in remembering this amazing man. Roux & Cyr International Fine Art Gallery is truly Uniting the World Through Art. Our Studio Exhibit is showcasing the works of two artists who won prizes in our recent juried show. B.

Grant Wahlquist Gallery
Grant Wahlquist Gallery is pleased to announce “Technique/Support,” Tad Beck’s second exhibition with the gallery. The show will run from June 29 through August 10, 2019. The gallery will hold an opening reception on Saturday, June 29 from 4 – 7 pm. Please note that the gallery is open by appointment only July 3 – 6. “Technique/Support” features selections from two recent photographic series and a new multi-channel video installation that use re-photography and repetition to both elucidate and complicate their architectural, erotic, and performative concerns. Continuing a strategy from Beck’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, each body of work is hung at a unique height; as with a chamber music score, the installation allows each to function semi-autonomously while also forming part of an ensemble. In the aggregate, “Technique/Support” demonstrates Beck’s pursuit of photography’s edges, to stretching its capacities by doubling down on its most basic attributes. It develops and adopts forms of expertise—“technique” is multivalent, equally applicable in photographic, choreographic, and sexual contexts—to test what a photograph can do. In his ongoing series “Blanks,” Beck begins by photographing a white sheet of glossy photographic paper, capturing reflective traces of the studio environment and camera. The photograph is printed and re-photographed under glass, occasionally embellished with white spray paint. This process is repeated a number of times such that the resulting image is a composite of multiple photographs. Beck begins with an empty subject and dilates the photographic moment until the studio itself functions as an apparatus for the creation of a new abstract space. While the “Blanks” owe much to modernist painting and structuralism—they at turns recall Alvin Lucier, Robert Ryman, Cy Twombly, Jan Dibbets, and Michael Snow—they toggle between digital and analog, painting and photography, system and accident, and image and architecture with an elegant insouciance. These are “pictures of nothing” that are nonetheless documents of specific times in specific places with a specific quality of light. “Colby” addresses how context changes the meaning of a pose. Beck worked with pornographic film star and artist Colby Keller. After capturing body positions from his films suggestive of other forms of performance, Beck had Keller carefully recreate these poses in his studio, solo and in dance tights. The images isolate the original poses against a black studio floor, blurring the lines between choreography and sex. The series explores both the importance of context in understanding what a body “means” as well as the choreographic nature of even the most (biologically) basic of movements. Condenser is a multi-channel video installation featuring Maine-based artist and dancer Riley Watts that extends a strategy developed in Beck’s photographic project “Double Document.” Beck took still photographs and video of Watts performing from above. He printed and placed select images on the floor and Watts re-executed the original movements on top, distressing and tearing the prints. Beck backlit the distressed prints with the original video footage, re-filming the prints with a video camera directly opposite the projector, a setup that evokes a darkroom enlarger (a condenser compresses light en route to a negative). The finished work is projected on suspended plexiglass. Like “Double Document,” Condenser explores photography's relationship to performance and the abstract body, incorporating a new form of duration to expand on its blurring of flat and sculptural space. Tad Beck received a B.F.A. in Photography from the School of Visual Arts, New York, and an M.F.A. in Fine Art from Art Center College of Design, Pasadena. He lives in Vinalhaven, Maine. In Summer 2019, his work will be featured in “Be Seen: Portrait Photography Since Stonewall” at the Wadsworth Atheneum. Beck’s solo exhibitions include: Grant Wahlquist Gallery; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; The Fisher Center at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson; Samuel Freeman Gallery, Los Angeles; Marisa Del Re Gallery, New York; Nathalie Karg Gallery, New York; and the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Rockport. Two-person exhibitions include collaborative works made with the artist Jennifer Locke at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions and an exhibition with Diana Cherbuliez at Theodore:Art, Brooklyn. His work has recently been featured in group exhibitions at: Grant Wahlquist Gallery; the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Rockland; FotoFest, Houston; Spritmuseum, Stockholm; the Addison Gallery of American Art; the Portland Museum of Art; and the Worcester Art Museum. His work is in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; the Portland Museum of Art; the Worcester Art Museum; and the Addison Gallery of American Art. The gallery is located at 30 City Center, Portland, Maine. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 11 am to 6 pm, and by appointment.

Maine Potters Market
376 Fore St.
The Maine Potters Market will feature the recent work of Fireside Pottery for the month of July. Nancy Button is known for her richly textured functional pieces. She uses a slab technique, with textured surfaces created by handmade stamps as well as rope, blocks of wood and anything else that looks like it might make an interesting impression. Her reduction fired wares are enhanced by glazes that accentuate that texture. Though her pieces are sometimes narrative many of them speak to us in a quiet language of form and design.

Portland Public Art Committe
Frederic E. Boothby, Portland Mayor from 1901-1903, installed a watering trough at one end of Boothby Square Park in 1902 to commemorate the philanthropic work of his wife, Adelaide. Water was in constant need, and public watering troughs were established and used by both “Man and Beast.” The watering trough at Boothby Square was used to water horses and dogs and goats. The “City Beautiful” movement also felt strongly that public fountains encouraged contemplation and respite from city life. Located at an intersection and in the middle of Fore Street, the Boothby Square Watering Trough was very exposed to traffic, and in July 1946 it was struck by a car with enough force to knock the trough off of its base and break off the ornate piece that once stood on top. Soon it was deemed a traffic hazard and along with the base was carted off to one of the city’s storage areas. There it sat, out of view and pretty much forgotten for twenty-five years. Boothby Square suffered a similar fate, turning into a simple unadorned grassy strip in the middle of the street. In 1983, antiques dealer William Johnson bought the trough and set it up on his property in Wells. The publicity around the sale caused renewed interest, and several attempts to buy it back were turned down until 2004 when Mr. Johnson finally accepted an offer for $50,000. The money was provided by a Libra Foundation grant and a group of donors headed by Eric Cianchette. Cianbro Corp. donated labor and equipment needed for the site work and reinstallation of the watering trough. The watering trough now has a small protective island, and is guarded by short granite posts to help prevent any future traffic mishaps. Very little re-plumbing was necessary as the original piping was mostly intact when the trough was returned to its place at the end of Fore Street. It is a working trough with two levels, one for horses and another for dogs. A simpler flattened stone has replaced the granite dome-like piece that once stood on top but otherwise it has been restored to its original state and re-entered into the Portland Public Art collection in June 2005. It’s interesting to note the Boothby Square area has retained its fundamental character since the park was established in 1902. The 1893 Chicago World’s Fair promoted a new vision for cities and the “City Beautiful” movement spread. The bold ideas put an emphasis on the aesthetics of civic life and pushed for urban planning that included parks, fountains, and public art. The idea of creating government centers with a series of parks connected by boulevards or esplanades was a central theme for urban renewal in the late 1800’s. This was the civic sentiment from which Boothby Park was created. Frederic Boothby, in encouraging the taking of the strip of land for the park, wrote “Another summer the open spaces will be grassed over, and the green freshness will purify the air and amply justify the expenditure necessary to redeem this portion of the city, so that, instead of being avoided, it will, with its picturesque old buildings, prove most attractive.”
