UMaine Museum of Art Announces Winter Exhibitions

The University of Maine Museum of Art has announced three winter exhibitions.

Hannah Cole’s “Time’s Wife”; Kenny Cole’s “Parabellum (Prepare for War)”; and “From Piranesi to Picasso: Master Prints from the Permanent Collection” will run from Jan. 17 to March 22 at the museum in downtown Bangor.

“From Piranesi to Picasso” will feature more than 60 prints from the museum’s permanent collection. Established in 1946, the collection contains original prints by internationally renowned artists.

Highlights of the selected works, which date from the 18th century to the late 1980s, include Giovanni Battista Piranesi’s etchings from 1748–1772 that document Rome’s architectural landmarks; Francisco Goya’s aquatint and etchings from “Los Caprichos;” and Pablo Picasso’s “Faun Unveiling a Woman,” considered to be one of the artist’s most significant graphic works.

Winslow Homer’s 1887 etching “Eight Bells,” John Marin’s 1910 etching “Chartres Cathedral,” and Edward Hopper’s “The Lonely House” from 1922 will also be featured in the exhibit that will demonstrate diverse printmaking processes such as etching, silkscreen, woodcut, lithograph, drypoint and engraving.
