New England Art Featured At UMMA Gallery

The University of Maine Museum of Art in downtown Bangor is displaying the finalists for the I-95 Triennial. In its second installment, a traditional jury show, the I-95 Triennial prides itself on providing a wide representation of New England artists, many of whom are from the Downeast region.

For two months, the main gallery hall is set aside to make room for the finalists - usually a rotating selection from the permanent collections (which includes works by Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali) as well as featured contemporary artists (including Michael De Brito and Alan Bray). This year out of 113 artists, 34 were chosen for exhibition. The jury this year was composed of Timothy McDowell, professor of art, and George Kinghorn, director and curator.
