WISCASSET — “Acquired Symbols,” featuring work by Maine artist John Lorence and colleagues, is to be on display Saturday, June 12, through Saturday, July 17, at the Maine Art Gallery at 15 Warren St.
An opening reception is scheduled for 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday, June 12.
All of the artists in this gallery show have a connection with Lorence. The show, originally scheduled for 2020, evolved during a discussion among the participants, who agreed that art is often a symbolic expression of what is going on in the world around us.
Works in mixed-media, collage, sculpture, photography, pottery, drawing, and painting reflect the worldly influences that affected Elliott Barowitz, Matt Blackwell, Fellice Boucher, Clara Cohan, Camille Cole, Sara Cox, Ellen Gutenkunst, Peter Haller, John Lorence, Jorge Pena,
