UMF art seniors present capstone exhibit, “Feint,” April 5–May 13

FARMINGTON, ME  (April 4, 2018)—The University of Maine at Farmington senior art students are exhibiting the culmination of their capstone research with “Feint: UMF Art Seniors Exhibition.” Their work is on exhibit in the UMF Art Gallery and the Emery Community Arts Center from April 5–May 13, with an opening reception from 5-7 p.m., Thursday, April 5.

The senior exhibition is a varied array of works exploring labor through rural objects, memory’s relationship with culture, uncanny childhood nostalgia, social alienation rooted in spectacle, the clarity of incoherence and the disintegration of nature through media. These concepts are investigated through a variety of media such as video, animation, sculpture and installation.
