Bounty, 2016 Biennial Faculty Exhibition

August 24 - September 29
Maine College of Art,
522 Congress St.
Portland, ME United States
+ Google Map

Curator Sage Lewis ’04 has selected artists and work coalescing around the idea of bounty. Bounty refers to both generosity and reward, but particularly for the reward sought out by the pursuit of artistic practice.

The East Pointers sort of fit into OLS’s usual realm of music BUT they have a bit of a twist. They’ve taken traditional Celtic music and modified it to speak to the next generation (aka my generation/Millennial generation). When they perform abroad their audience is packed with 20 somethings and 30 somethings because of the new wave of Celtic they’ve created. Here’s a link to the ticketing link, which includes a video and info on pricing etc. https://onelongfellowsquare.com/event-registration/?ee=531
