HOMAGE

Maude Kerns Art Center Presents

Homage
Work by Rachel Marcotte,
Maude Anne May,
& Brooke Stone


Exhibit Dates:
January 11 - February 8

Opening Reception:
Friday, January 11, 6 - 8pm

The Maude Kerns Art starts off its 2019 exhibits season with “Homage,” featuring the work of Rachel Marcotte, Maude Anne May, and Brooke Stone. The exhibit, which brings together three artists who explore ideas of home and family, opens with a public reception on Friday, January 11, from 6 – 8 pm. “Homage” is on view through Friday, February 8.

Portland mixed media artist Maude Anne May imagines stories of people and places using the iconic form of a house, a simple square or rectangle topped with a triangle. Her evocative collages are created with linen fabric, cotton thread, photo transfers, and encaustic. She says: “Photographing abandoned houses – wondering about their stories – and collecting quotations about home and what others have written is a long-standing preoccupation.”

Sisters Rachel Marcotte and Brooke Stone of Eugene carry on a Marcotte family tradition of portraiture, expressing their love of family and community in oil on canvas portrait paintings. Both artists, who grew up in New England, were influenced by their aunts Reg and Lucille Marcotte, portrait painters during the early-to-mid 1900s. Brooke, who is also well known as a jeweler, paints portraits to pass on family images to her children and grandchildren. Rachel pays homage to her aunts by continuing their work in portraiture.
