About the Artist
As an artist trained in industrial design, Christine Dentremont’s work explores the intersection of art and function.
Born and raised in New York State, her connection with Maine, started on summer vacations in the 1980s. Two days after finishing up at Pratt Institute, in Brooklyn, N.Y., she jumped at the chance to relocate to an island off the coast of Maine, and has happily spent the last eighteen years.
She found herself viewing the environment in terms of form and function—the waves of the sea, the curve of a hull, the creatures of the deep.
She has recently moved to a studio that has allowed her to expand her repertoire in a variety of genres, including sculptural furniture, home décor, giftables, and fine art.
Her work has appeared at the Wayne (Pennsylvania) Art Center’s 15th Annual International Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Craft; and Belfast, Maine’s ECO-Motion and Clifford Gallery at Waterfall Arts.
In March 2015, Christine was honored to be named the Maine Arts Commission’s 2015 Functional Craft Arts Fellow.
