Burckhardt for Tuesday Talk

Jul 06, 2018
A commentary on climate change, Tom Burckhardt’s “Studio Flood” turns the world upside down as if hit by a catastrophic tidal wave.

Rockland — The Center for Maine Contemporary Art, 21 Winter St., invites the public to a Tuesday Talk with artist Tom Burckhardt Tuesday, July 17, at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday Talks are free with admission, and participants are invited to stay after the talk for further conversation and refreshments.

Burckhardt, a resident of New York City and Searsmont, will present a slide show on his work, followed by a walkthrough of his current installation, “Studio Flood,” a life-sized re-creation of an artist's studio executed entirely in cardboard and black paint.

Burckhardt is perhaps best known for his paintings that examine aspects of abstraction and often incorporate sculptural elements. His work has been shown nationally and internationally including at the McNay Art Museum, San Antonio, Texas; the National Academy Museum, New York; and City Museum, Aalst, Belgium. His paintings have been exhibited at Tibor de Nagy Gallery, Caren Golden Fine Arts and PIEROGI, in New York City; and Gregory Lind Gallery, San Francisco.
