Press Herald reviews two UMaine Museum of Art exhibits

The Portland Press Herald published a review of two current exhibits at the University of Maine Museum of Art in downtown Bangor — Jared Cowan’s “The Life of David” and Siobhan McBride’s “Four Hour Fortune Cookie.” The author wrote the two shows struck him as an “unlikely but surprisingly well-matched pair.” “The Life of David” is a small installation comprising impressive bronzes, photography and video components to convey a biographical sketch of Emilio David Mazzeo, (1920–1997) an Olympic runner whose lower legs were amputated later in life, according to the article. “Four Hour Fortune Cookie” features 16 small gouache paintings that depict glimpses of everyday object scenes, the article states. The shows are on display through May 6.
