Rockland — The Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA) hosts an artist talk on Earth Day, Thursday, April 22, at 6 p.m. on Zoom and Facebook Live. "Futures Worth Imagining: Biennial Artists Talk Environment" features four Biennial artists and will be moderated by Julie Poitras Santos.

In celebration of Earth Day, the public is invited to join CMCA virtually for this free and engaging conversation between artists whose work, concepts, or processes consider the environment. Participating in the event are Biennial artists Sam Finkelstein, Gregory Jamie, Tom Jessen, and Elijah Ober and moderator Julie Poitras Santos. Julie Poitras Santos is a respected artist, writer, teacher, and the Director of Exhibitions at the ICA at MECA; her work focuses on the relationship of site, story, and mobility in the age of climate change.

This edition of the CMCA Biennial features the work of 34 artists from 17 Maine communities. The selected artists were chosen from a pool of more than 500 individual submissions by jurors Nina Johnson-Milewski, owner, founder, and director of Nina Johnson Gallery, Miami, Fla., and Kate McNamara, an independent curator and educator based in Providence, R.I. The exhibition will remain on view at CMCA in Rockland through May 2, and is sponsored by The Via Agency, Portland.
