The Opening Reception of the Mirages Exhibition at the Crisp-Ellert Art Museum is Friday, September 3, 2021, 5:00pm-8:00pm; with an artist walk-through at 5:00pm.
Mirages is an exhibition of new work by Elizabeth Atterbury, Strauss Bourque-LaFrance, and Katy Cowan. It brings their work together for the first time. The exhibit runs from September 3 through November 6, 2021.
Though geographically separated (in Portland, Maine, Los Angeles and Berkeley, California) their conversations over the last year have helped to shape the trajectory of this exhibition.
The exhibition title makes reference to the process through which each of these artists transforms materials and objects (wood, paint, images, rope, canvas, aluminum, photography) in order to reinterpret and reimagine the familiar. The artists embrace a simple premise: can a thing be a thing but also another thing?
Museum Hours: Monday – Friday, 10:00am to 4:00pm | Saturday, 12:00pm to 4:00pm
