Portland Museum of Art Announces Artists Participating in 2018 Biennial

Maine’s Portland Museum of Art has announced the artists participating in its 2018 biennial, which opens on January 26, 2018. Among those exhibiting works are painter Anne Buckwalter, photographer Rosamond Purcell, mixed-media artists Gina Adams and David Minter, and canoe-maker David Moses Bridges. All artists live in Maine or have ties to the state.

“Rather than put together a ‘greatest hits’ exhibition,” said independent curator Nat May, “we wanted to use the opportunity of the Biennial to focus on artists who hadn’t previously participated in PMA Biennials or other programming at this institution. To show work in a museum can be an important step for an artist, and to present work to a museum audience can invite a unique opportunity for dialogue and exchange in our varied cultural community.”
