Winslow Homer’s Civil War. On loan from the Portland Museum of Art, this exhibition features 30 woodcuts by Winslow Homer, one of the greatest nineteenth-century American painters. These prints were some of the first anecdotal images of war in the United States.
Todd Webb: Georgia O’Keeffe & the American West. Todd Webb was an intimate friend of O’Keeffe after meeting her in Stieglitz’ New York studio. In many trips to the American West, he captured her on film in her own environment: her studio and the desert of New Mexico. This exhibition is part of the Maine Photo Project and curated by Andres Azucena Verzosa.
Enjoy also the on-going exhibits from the Museum’s permanent collections, and the beautiful sculpture gardens.
