Monkitree invites you to “Rejuvenation” a show of works by eight local artists. In Maine, thoughts of Spring revive us even if it doesn’t yet feel like Spring. With Rejuvenation, artists are sharing, through their art, what reinvigorates them.
While nature is a common theme- early blooms, fresh green landscapes, wildlife- sometimes the strength of others is rejuvenating. Robin Brooks entries include a piece from her Foremothers Project. She explains, “I began to meditate on foremothers, influential women whose lives laid the path for me to live into my potential as a human, artist, and activist.” This show features the work of eight artists working in a variety of medium- photography, mixed media collage, fiber pulp painting, metal work. Artists include-Karen Jordan Allen, Kathryn Beausang, Robin Brooks, Christine J. Higgins, Payden Maddocks-Wilbur, Matthew Sapirstein, Heidi Spadter and Melissa Walden.
While the show begins with snow on the ground, hopefully, it will wrap up while nature reawakens.
The show can be seen at Monkitree-263 Water Street, Gardiner, ME beginning March 1st during regular shop hours. March/April hours- Tues/Wed- 10-4-Thurs/Friday 10-5, Saturday 10-4 or by appointment.
