The Center for Maine Contemporary Art, 21 Winter St., will present a gallery talk with exhibiting artist Don Voisine, in conversation with artist and educator Mark Wethli, Sunday, Oct. 9, at 4 p.m. The talk is free with museum admission and is presented in conjunction with the current show “Don Voisine: X/V,” on view through Oct. 28.

Voisine and Wethli are longtime friends with a shared aesthetic approach and appreciation. They will discuss the 15-year survey of Voisine's work currently on view in CMCA's Main Gallery. Rooted in the language of architecture, Voisine's paintings, prints and drawings convey a sense of shifting spatial interactions through the use of symmetry, color and precise, hard-edged forms.

Voisine was born in 1952 in Fort Kent and studied at the Portland School of Art (now the Maine College of Art). He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, N.Y. Wethli is a painter and public artist who lives and works in Brunswick where he is also the A. LeRoy Greason Professor of Art at Bowdoin College.
