Michel Droge: Nocturnes
UMF Art Gallery
September 08-October 09, 2016 MORE
Cost: free
Audience: Open to the public

In Nocturnes, a new series of large oil paintings, Michel Droge approaches the qualities of the night that evoke feelings of the sublime?the powerful and disorienting diminution of the self absorbed by the vastness and impenetrability of the deep night sky and ocean. Climate change and its effect on coastal communities are concerns at the heart of Droge?s work--beneath the mystery and melancholy of her darkly luminous environments runs the artist?s insistent question of how to represent what cannot (yet) be clearly seen? Michel Droge exhibits internationally. She conducts research in Maine?s island and coastal communities along with her students at the Maine College of Art (MECA). The gallery is open from noon to 4pm Tuesday through Sunday; closed Mondays.
