Midcoast artists for Sunday Salon

Apr 13, 2018

Rockland — The Center for Maine Contemporary Art, 21 Winter St., invites the public for a Sunday Salon discussion between Midcoast painters John Moore and Sam Cady April 22 from 3 to 5 p.m.

Moore’s work is featured in the current exhibition “John Moore: Resonance.” Cady’s work was the subject of the exhibition “Sam Cady: Parts of the Whole,” presented at CMCA in spring 2017. Both artists are renowned for their visual acuity and unique perspectives on representation, so their interchange should be wide-ranging and thought-provoking.

Moore’s work is in many museum collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Chicago Art Institute, the Yale Art Gallery, the Colby College Museum of Art and the Portland Museum of Art, among others. He has taught at the Tyler School of Art, the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, the University of California, Berkeley, Boston University and the University of Pennsylvania. He lives in Belfast.

Cady taught in the graduate program at the School of Visual Arts, New York City, from 1984 to 2007. Throughout this period, he split his time between New York and his home and studio in Friendship, where he lives today.

CMCA's Sunday Salons are an ongoing series of engaging talks and conversations by artists and leaders in the fields of contemporary art and design. Sunday Salons are included in admission, free to CMCA members. Participants are invited to stay following the talks for further conversation and refreshments.
