Rockport — The next Tuesday Talk at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, 162 Russell Ave., will be a slide talk and conversation in the galleries with artist Elizabeth Fox and CMCA director Suzette McAvoy. It will be held Sept. 2 at 5:30 p.m., in conjunction with Fox’s exhibition “Played to Win.” Admission to the talk is free.

In Fox’s new series of paintings, everything is not as it first appears. With their muted color palette and deceptively straightforward style, her tautly rendered mini-dramas are rich with nuance and biting social commentary.

A resident of Standish, Maine, Fox has exhibited her work widely including in New York City, New Orleans, Miami, Washington, D.C., Houston and the Netherlands. “Played to Win,” along with exhibitions of work by Tom Burckhardt, Betsy Eby and Ron Leax, is on view at CMCA through Sept. 20.

The Center for Maine Contemporary Art is a nonprofit organization advancing contemporary art in Maine through exhibitions and educational programs. CMCA’s main media sponsor is Maine Home + Design magazine.
