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.

To build a more perfect shape

'Install 4’ draws lines between three Maine artists
