ROCKLAND — The Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA), 21 Winter St., announces four Winter/Spring exhibitions that open to the public Saturday, Jan. 29, and remain on view through May 8. Related events, including artist talks and an artists’ reception, will be announced in the coming weeks.

Nicola López | “Visions, Phantoms, and Apparitions”
Marilyn Moss Rockefeller Lobby + Karen and Rob Brace Hall

“Apparition I” by Nicola López.

López’s solo exhibition features the monumental mixed media installation “Barren Lands Breed Strange Visions,” accompanied by three related bodies of work that collectively view the past, present and future through the lens of climate change. López’s works for the exhibition exist somewhere between hopes and apprehensions, depicting human-built structures that are strange, beautiful, ominous, and even impossible. In addition to gallery hours, López’s exhibition will be visible at night from CMCA’s courtyard through its floor-to-ceiling lobby windows.

Chris Doyle | “The Fabricators”
Bruce Brown Gallery + Karen and Rob Brace Hall
The exhibition premieres Doyle’s 2021 digital animation, “The Fabricators,” on a screen spanning 48 feet in length. “The Fabricators” features a group of related machines locked in loops of perpetual labor. Products, by-products, and waste are transported through conduits that weave through space. Because the figures and gestures of the system appear anthropomorphic, one can’t help but look at the elements that make up “The Fabricators” and wonder about the future of human activity as the majority of production is transferred from man to machine.

Young Sun Han | “Passages From a Memoir + Tourist in the Dark”
Guy D. Hughes Gallery
Arising out of research into family narratives and grassroots peace movements on Jeju Island, Young Sun Han presents text and photo-based installations that respond to consequences of war and migration in North and South Korea. Through research and travel – mining memoir, oral histories, articles, travel brochures, and forbidden photographs – Han’s installation examines stories of the Korean diaspora.

“Walk the Line”
Main Gallery

“Accumulator #34.2” by John Houck.

“Walk the Line” features an exceptionally diverse range of works by eight Maine and Maine-connected artists who share a central use of linear or geometric forms in their compositions. Seen together, these artists underscore the expressive power of the line through works that span assemblage, photography, textile, painting, printmaking, sculpture, and artist books. Artists featured in the exhibition include Paolo Arao, Grace DeGennaro, Clint Fulkerson, John Houck, Jennie C. Jones, Jeff Kellar, Paula McCartney and Will Sears.

These exhibitions are curated by Executive Director/Chief Curator Timothy Peterson with Curatorial Assistant Rachel Romanski and in collaboration with the artists.

CMCA’s exhibitions are made possible in part by a two-year grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Visit for more information.
