Closing the gap

Is Portland ready for a $15 per hour minimum wage?
The Mayor wants to give low-wage workers a raise, but will it be a modest boost or a Seattle-style jump?

Inquiry under pressure

Richard Tuttle's experiments in printmaking
That said, “Richard Tuttle: A Print Retrospective” affords a fascinating opportunity to get a more complete picture of the artist, who, apparently, thinks like a sculptor engaging space even when paying his respects to the medium of printmaking, its practitioners, and its history.

Play oud in the West Bank
"(Israeli) immigration asked me at the airport why I didn’t leave when I could have and I said it was because I felt safe. They told me I was nuts.”

Number crunchers

Press Releases
Maybe instead of devoting still-more resources to food reviews, Maine’s leading news organizations should spend money on keeping better tabs on Augusta.

A little nip

Politics and Other Mistakes
You might not realize it, but while it’s legal to carry a gun in Maine (either openly or, with a permit, concealed), putting a flask containing an alcoholic beverage in your hip pocket is against the law.

Selling our shares

Despite its perks, Airbnb is making it tougher to live in Portland
Before we herald Airbnb as the harbinger of Portland’s “sharing economy” revolution, some troubling side effects are beginning to show. Airbnb is raising rents, fracturing neighborhoods, accelerating gentrification, and diminishing Portland’s stock of affordable, available, permanent homes.

Inclinations & otherwise

Three artists break out at Corey Daniels'
In an assembly that is at once challenging, aesthetically diffracted, and oddly comforting, the Maine artists Peter Bennett, Heather Chontos, and J.T. Gibson unite their work at the breathtaking Corey Daniels Gallery, the Wells art house built on a plot half in the world of regional antique culture, and the other firmly in a modernist fantasia.

What you say, Ryan?

Ghost returns with Proper Placement
Ryan’s calling card is his sincerity. While the production and presentation are of a genre, you won’t find him talking about puffing the chron or dissing women or dropping a million f-bombs or using a bunch of contemporary rap jargon. He’s got a plan and he executes it, with more variety and modes of attack than he’s had on display to this point.

Girls (and boys) on film

 MIFF 2014 features Glenn Close, Sara Driver, and a boy's unforgettable adolescence
The Maine International Film Festival, now in its 17th year in Waterville, remains one of the region’s more ambitious cultural institutions, less bound by a singular ambition than a desire to convey the breadth and depth of cinema’s past and present. (This, and a healthy dose of music and human-interest documentaries.) On that account, MIFF ’14 is an impressive achievement, offering area filmgoers its best program in years. With so much to survey, let’s make haste with the recommendations. (Particularly emphatic suggestions are marked in bold print.)
