Local Gallery Gets Festive for New Performing Arts Festival in June
One local gallery exhibits "festive" art and offers space to Fringe performers for new festival in Portland Maine.
- Portland-South Portland, ME (1888PressRelease) May 30, 2012 - It's said that art sometimes mirrors life and that is the case with the new exhibit by members of Constellation Gallery, 511 Congress St in Portland ME until June 30th.
Festival is the theme for the show as Constellation has become a site for the Portland Performing Arts Festival's (PPAF) Fringe Events.
There will be an artists reception on Friday, June 1st from 5 to 8 pm. The event is free and open to the public.
The theme is interpreted wildly by David Marshall, Frank Gruber, Robin Farrin, Ann Tracy, Kenneth Kohl, Anastashi Weigle, Yos Ruks, Anthony S. Marino, Kyler Henningsen and Yelena Fiske.
The artists come at the idea from an abstract angle to portrayals of performing artists and assemblages. During the PPAF Fringe, from June 28 to July 1, events ranging from poetry readings to belly dance performances will take place in the gallery.
Constellation Gallery is the home of the Maine Artists Collective whose mission is to connect the public with Maine artists and support development by providing exhibition and studio space, education, and professional workshops.
