May 4 – June 23
Maine Jewish Museum
Beloved Portland-based artist Rush Brown returns to the Maine Jewish Museum with an exhibition of new and recent work. Brown’s paintings depict a diverse reach of subjects, from landscapes to the human figure. He is well known for his paintings of people interacting with art and each other in museums, inviting us to ponder the narratives that emerge. Included in this show are dozens of smaller works in which he seemingly plucks museum visitors and paintings from the galleries of his larger works and playfully displays them for our consideration. The exhibition also includes paintings of Paris, iconic Portland scenes, a figurative study of another well known Portland artist, and other works that will be familiar to his collectors. Brown received his BFA from Philadelphia College of Art and a Masters in Painting from NYU, and has exhibited at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, the University of New England, the Maine Jewish Museum, and many galleries.
