Summer was stolen

A look at artists who prepared for the fall
From here, the strongest pull of the art season comes—surprise, surprise—from the Portland Museum of Art, where a mostly sculptural assembly of works by Aaron T. Stephan should throw a wrench at the syntax of institutional aesthetics.

The pull of the earth

The arc of Bernard Langlais at Colby's Museum of Art

Taking center stage

Acorn bounces from Westbrook to Portland
“I’ve always loved hidden treasures,” says Michael Levine, founding artistic director of Acorn Productions, as he climbs the stairs to the third-floor ballroom of Mechanics Hall, a gem of a historic space concealed in plain sight right on Congress Street.

Barn full of wonder

theater_madhorsecabaret1_li

Welcome obscenity

Mad Horse stages intimate, shocking Cabaret
When dancers or denizens at these close tables rustle, giggle, or whisper something titillating, it sounds like the prurience is coming from someone in our own party.

Built to last

Nadal and Buckwalter fly the flags at Mayo
Just like kids’ forts, the room is a forum for the constant bending of logic.

The dream lives on

Theater of 'unwavering ideals' in its 78th year
The Deertrees experience is not just theater shows, and not just its program of concerts. Deertrees is also a certain ethos of small-town summertime in Maine.

art_brentonhamilton_list

What the light reveals

Maasch's room of dark statues, fresh flowers
Their latest duo at Susan Maasch Fine Art, Brenton Hamilton and Kiki Gaffney, is worth a stop, its works adventurous enough to satiate the art-educated while sufficiently wall-mountable to please strict collectors.

All the world's a stage

Shakespeare's colorful As You Like It in Monmouth, Bath, and Deering Oaks Park
When three theater companies, all within a one-hour drive of Portland, choose to present the same Shakespeare play on overlapping dates, you have to wonder what about that particular show resonates with this particular moment.

art_richardtuttle_list

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.

Steel poppies

City Theater revives stripper romp
Linda Sturdivant directs a spirited and attractively appointed production of the musical The Full Monty , the Americanized version of the 1997 British film, at the historic City Theater, in Biddeford.

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.

The most brutal sport

Billy Elliot scores big at Ogunquit Playhouse
Ballet is not for pussies.

Man is the sum of his arts

Marc Swanson sets stage for Rehearsal Space
Rehearsal Space has an atmosphere of sneaking into an abandoned house, a domestic arrangement of personal effects that contains nothing more, nothing less, than prescribed.

Distilled portrait

MSMT’s  Chamberlain pays faithful homage
The greatest love of the show’s title—for both Chamberlain and its audience—remains the war itself.

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.
