Painters, Poets, and Players at the Lewis Gallery

Inner Terrain

Kate Cheney Chappell is one of 16 painters whose work will be included in the upcoming Painters, Players, and Poets exhibition. From the Painters, Players, and Poets website:

“Painters, Players and Poets is a unique collaboration celebrating the tremendous talents of 48 Maine artists. Included in the project are 16 Maine painters, 9 Maine players/composers, 7 Maine poets and 16 Maine chair makers.

In the spring of 2009 Writer/Producer Con Fullam asked several well known Maine composers and poets to identify a living Maine painter whose work inspired them, and to then choose a specific painting to interpret via poem or musical composition. That process has now been completed and a traveling exhibition featuring those 16 collaborations is set to hit the road in July 2011.”

The show opens at the Lewis Gallery at the Portland, Public Library on September 7th from 5:00 – 8:00 PM, and will also be up and open for the First Friday Artwalk September 2nd.
