StudioWorks Artist Talk: Lena Schmid and Duncan Hewitt
September 19, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC-5
Join two current StudioWorks Artists-in-Residence, Duncan Hewitt and Lena Schmid, on Wednesday, September 19, for open studio receptions. Beginning at 7 pm, Lena Schmid will present dyed and painted textile works-in-progress and a slide show presentation at StudioWorks, 48 Water Street, Eastport. Schmid, who lives in Brooklyn, NY, says, “I am interested in iconic images that defy definition. (My) works make a connection between the kind of slow, strange change experienced in a space long inhabited: be it a body or a well known landscape.”
Immediately following Schmid’s presentation, visitors are invited to the studio of Duncan Hewitt at the North Church Project Space, for a chance to see sculptural works created during the 4-week term and finished sculptural works. Hewitt makes and replaces things that are important to him. They reappear as touchstones that exist in real and imagined space and are both sculptures and objects. Most are made of carved and painted wood. Hewitt lives and works in southern Maine.
The StudioWorks program, now in its sixth year, is an initiative of the Tides Institute & Museum of Art. For more information about these artists, see their websites: Hewitt: https://www.duncanhewitt.net/ and Schmid: https://schmidlena.com/home.html.
