OMAA Online: ARTifacts – Charles Woodbury: Open Studio #1

If you’ve been following our ARTifacts Series, you may recall an earlier post sharing our behind-the-scenes preview of OMAA’s re-creation of Charles Woodbury’s Perkins Cove studio. Today, as part of OMAA Online, Curator and Collections Manager Ruth Greene-McNally and Preparator Larry Hayden provide a progress update as they install original artifacts on loan to the museum for the upcoming exhibition, “Charles Woodbury: Open Studio.” OMAA is grateful to exhibition sponsors Elizabeth Cutler & Joanna Manikas and the Maine Bicentennial Commission for their support. Stay tuned for updates on the completed project and be sure to share your questions and thoughts in the comment line!

Artist Pamela Moulton* looks forward to her “Garden Intervention”

Andres Verzosa remembers Dahlov Ipcar

As many of you may know by now, one-of-a-kind painter, sculptor and illustrator Dahlov Ipcar passed away last month.  She was 99 years young.  I had been working closely with Dahlov and her family on behalf of the museum to organize an exhibition of her work for the OMAA’s 64th Season opening this May.  Our…

A Touch of Grey

By Jill Burke February, a typically grey monochromatic month in New England, was brightened for me by my weekly OMAA Art Education Outreach visits.  I love working with the art groups at Waban Lifeworks in Sanford and The Art Certificate Program in Biddeford because the students are so happy to be there and appreciative of…

Hanging Out with Bernie

by Tori Rasche No, not Bernie Sanders. I recently got to ‘hang out’ with another Bernie, the artist Bernard Karfiol (1886-1952), through a collection of his drawings and ephemera from his life that was generously given to OMAA last year by the Karfiol family. As a gallery attendant, I normally work at the museum when…

OMAA on the Go at Governor Baxter School for the Deaf

Where do I winter?

By Ron Crusan I often get asked, “What do you do all winter while the OMAA is closed?”  After our season ends October 31, I don’t pack up and head to Florida to wait for our May 1 opening (appealing as that may seem on a 20 degree Maine-in-January day).  In fact, I and a…
