Art/Work: The Work of Art Show Opening
Caption: Art/Work: The Work of Art

 

Art/Work: The Work of Art is a collaborative art show between the Union of Maine Visual Artists and The Southern Maine Workers' Center, co-sponsored by Portland Outright. Using their unique gifts of creative expression, local artists will be showing pieces based on the broad theme of the meaning of work in today's society, exploring multiple perspectives highlighting not only the exploitative and oppressive aspects of work and our modern economy, but also the potential for work to be dignified. Among the many local artists included in the show, the show will also feature two pieces by Robert Shetterly, a renowned Maine artist and creator of Americans Who Tell the Truth, whose mission is to create portraits and narratives that "highlight citizens who courageously address issues of social, environmental and economic fairness."
