"Five to Nine" exhibit poster

Five to Nine exhibits a collection of works that range conceptually through the humanization of strangers, deconstruction of nostalgia, the search for meaning, exploration of the uncanny, reflexivity of form and representation, and the exposure of consumption as an apathetic mechanism.

Mediums include photography; film; sculpture from found objects and fabrics; animation; and drawings that use charcoal, wood, paint, and string. Together, this work creates an immersive environment that reintroduces the audience to the world they thought they knew.

The 2017 senior art exhibit is sponsored by the UMF Division of the Arts.

The UMF Art Gallery is located at 246 Main Street in Farmington, behind the UMF Admission Office. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 12 to 4 p.m. and by appointment. For more information or to make an appointment please contact Sarah Maline, UMF Art Gallery director, at maline@maine.edu or 207-778-1062

The Emery Community Arts Center is located on Academy Street, adjacent to UMF Merrill Hall.  The Emery Flex Space Gallery is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
