Lines are one of the fundamental building blocks of visual artwork. They are an integral element found in both subject matter and the process of drawing, painting, photography & sculpture in this exhibit. "Defining & Essential Lines" explores how seven Maine artists see, imagine and create their art with the use of lines.

Roberta Baumann’s mysterious and intimate photographs emphasize organic and geometric curved lines. In this new body of work she continues with her recognizable romantic sensibility but in an entirely new way. Her photos often have a feeling of looking through a microscope and discovering new and unfamiliar worlds. Linden Frederick’s exquisite etchings are beautifully rendered with subtle layers of line that describe his subjects and the tone of light in landscape. Naomi Aho’s amazingly detailed pencil drawings of bird nests are a metaphor for home, and sanctuary. The circular nature of her nest drawings also suggests a world or larger universe of great intricacy. Gifford Ewing uses a 5” x 7” view camera to capture coastal Maine and linear subjects. His fine B&W photographs are hand printed in his darkroom. Nancy Linkin’s curvilinear bronze sculptures are simplified linear forms. They have an innate sense of nature, being reminiscent of plant, seashell and other forms found in nature. Bruce Brown’s keen eye for art is distilled into his refined photographs from recent travel destinations. His perfectly composed and exposed B&W photographs find linear inspiration in unusual places. Bruce Busko uses the forest as inspiration for his mystical oil / mixed media work. Layers of tree trunks and branches exist within a palpable atmosphere, contrasting the linear subject of the forest.

UMMA’s second I-95 Triennial: From Connecticut to Maine highlights the diversity of contemporary creative practice by artists from five New England states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island. The exhibition features works in an array of media—from sculpture and painting to photography and mixed media. One hundred and fourteen artists submitted works for consideration and, after a highly competitive jury process, 34 artists were invited to participate. The jurors were Timothy McDowell, professor of art and former chair of the art department at Connecticut College and George Kinghorn, director and curator of the University of Maine Museum of Art. The Triennial showcases a wide range of approaches to materials and styles, including representational, abstract, and conceptual works.

The 90-plus works by these New England-based artists attest to the multitude of approaches to art making and the pluralistic nature prevalent in contemporary art.
