Closing the gap

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.

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.

Man is the sum of his arts

Midcentury maestros

 Pollack collection dances with modernism
As Maine’s art tourists gobble up the area’s major summer exhibits—Richards Estes and Brown Lethem, Andrea Sulzer, and the inexhaustible Alex Katz—they’d be smart not to overlook the fine arts enclave on Forest Ave., where collector Edward Pollack has operated for much of the past decade.

Telling truth from fallacy

The art and artifice of DRC’s Equivocation
His considerations about whether and how to tell the truth drive Bill Cain’s remarkable Equivocation, a gripping and dizzyingly erudite work of historical fiction.
