Art of the Vegetable by Lynn Karlin

Fineberg Family Community Room
Curators – Nancy Davidson/Nanci Kahn
 
Originally from New York, Lynn Karlin graduated from Pratt Institute. She has an impressive list of employees and clients over her four-decade career shooting food & gardens for major magazines worldwide. Sole photographer of three award winning garden/lifestyle books, Lynn added fine art photography to the mix ten years ago. Her photographs of vegetables, flowers and edible plants are a natural progression. They are about the obvious but often overlooked beauty of the harvest. These still-lifes challenge her to create within a confined space, either on a pedestal or looking down at arrangements in a tray; each with its own unique character and personality. Lynn works from her studio in Belfast.


Glasslight by Martin Kremer

Spiegel Gallery

Martin Kremer’s award-winning fused glass vessels and sculpture have been shown across the country and overseas since the late 1980s. Since moving to North Yarmouth 3 years ago he has been concentrating on teaching and developing a local fused glass community. Kremer is no stranger to Maine- he has exhibited at the Maine Jewish Museum and the Stein and Kany Glass Galleries in the past. The new illuminated glass panels in this show, Glasslight, depict fragments of fabric, of mazes, of lattice designs. The patterns are largely composed of recycled glass from previous work over the years. The visual depth and vibrancy of the work is conveyed by the transparency of the glass in combination with sophisticated LED panels.

Revisiting Stu Nudelman

Third Floor Sanctuary
Curator – Nanci Kahn
Stu Nudelman was a well-known photographer in southern Maine and beyond. He was an art critic as well as a photography teacher in the summer community of Ogunquit for many years. Nudelman was inspired at age 8, when Life Magazine came out with its first issue. ‘The cover was mind boggling to me”, he said “It was the Hoover Dam photographed by Margaret Bourke-White”. That one photograph led to a long life of investigating photography’s many avenues including photojournalism, portraiture and fine art abstractions. The first part of this exhibit is his abstract color photographs, zooming in on life’s little details. The second section shows his series of portraits of artists and their work, which he photographed over many years.
