I shared some pics from the Portland Museum of Art's Art in Bloom on Wednesday. And I could have sworn that I've shared pics of PMA's permanent collection, but when I looked through my archives, I didn't see a post. (FYI: You can use the search box on the blog to look for any posts you might be missing or thinking about.) If that's true, I'll have to go spelunking for the photos from my visit last year and get them posted to share with you!
In the meantime, PMA is hosting a fantastic exhibit called "Relational Undercurrents." It's contemporary art from the Caribbean Archipelago. I thought I would share a few photos. I found the exhibit beautiful and thought provoking and informational -- all the things I like art to be! Take a peek:
Be sure to read the info card about this next painting. I liked the painting from afar but when I read about it, I liked it even more!
I found this piece so powerful. A great example of visual impact versus words. So, I'll let the art do the talking.
This last piece is an enormous installation. This pile of rubbish takes up most of the gallery. And it smells.
It's meant to represent the wave of garbage -- especially plastic garbage -- that washes ashore on the Caribbean Islands. Waves of refuse.
If you get a chance to check out PMA, it's a lovely little museum and always worth a visit.
Thanks for stopping by!
