UMaine Intermedia Student Exhibition, Unfolding Traces at UMA’s Danforth Gallery through Oct. 11th.

UnfoldingTrac4inThe Danforth Gallery at the University of Maine at Augusta is presenting a selection of new work by seven artists from the Masters of Fine Arts in Intermedia program at the University of Maine at Orono in an exhibit that runs from September 3rd through October 11th.

The exhibit, Unfolding Traces, explores the concept of time in seven unique creative visions, through the talents of students from all levels of the three year program, including recent alumni now pursuing Interdisciplinary PhDs. Works from Ozgur Akgun, Benjamin Burpee, John Carney, Bethany Engstrom, Siglinde Langholz, Sally Levi, and Susan Smith have expressed this common thread through interactive sculpture, painting, installation, and video. Although the individual artists differ in concerns and approach, in revealing the trace left behind or the process of entropy they have developed a body of work that engages the viewer in time and temporality.

The Intermedia MFA is an interdisciplinary program focused on new forms of creative production. Both faculty and students in the program come from a wide variety of disciplines, comprising new media, dance, science, writing, fine arts and philosophy. They are united by their common interest in engaging in multiple research processes, critical thinking, and working collaboratively with current production tools and technologies.

The Danforth Gallery, located in Jewett Hall on the UMA campus, is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday through Wednesday from 9AM to 5:00PM, Thursday from 9AM to 7:00PM and on Fridays from 9AM to 1:00PM.
