Almost 100 people attended the opening on Saturday afternoon at USM, Gorham campus. President Glenn Cummings greeted the attendees and USMs Director of Exhibitions and Programs Carolyn Eyler and Maine Art Education Association exhibit coordinator Allison Price thanked the artists for their contributions. The show is marvelous – if you have a chance to venture to the USM gallery you won’t be disappointed. “Portals: Work by Maine Art Education Association Members” will be open through March 2.

This exhibition brings together the creative work of art educators from around the state of Maine to celebrate the studio practice and exploration that takes place beyond the classroom.
Artists were invited to create their interpretation of the concept of portal- a gate or entrance that is especially grand or imposing; or, an entryway, door, or threshold.

The artists represented in this show teach, or have taught, in Maine’s public and private schools and universities and are members of the Maine Art Education Association – an arts advocacy organization that promotes the artistic learning of children, encourages innovation and research in art education, and the exchange of ideas and practices among teachers.
