IN NATURE + GRAND OPENING DEC. 16

Grand Opening of Engine’s Exhibition Space with In Nature, featuring the work of Deborah Randall, Andy Rosen, and Stephen Burt

BIDDEFORD—Engine, based in Biddeford, Maine, announces a grand opening of its exhibition space at 265 Main Street on Friday, December 16 from 5-8pm, featuring the work of Deboral Randall, Andy Rosen and Stephen Burt, in a show entitled In Nature.

In Nature will occupy 2000sf of newly-renovated space at 265 Main Street, the new home of Engine, a Biddeford arts organization.

The work of Randall, Rosen, and Burt, all Maine artists who teach art at the University of New England-Biddeford, shares a common thread of nature, but not in a traditional representative style. Randall’s work predominantly features abstracted human forms in natural environments–forests, bodies of water, mist–while Andy Rosen’s sculptural creatures are anything but natural and beg the question, “What?” Stephen Burt’s meticulous landscapes draw from previous centuries’ motifs to suggest the possibility of transcendency from our present state.

Music and light refreshments will be served. Engine’s hours will be from 12pm-6pm, Tuesday-Friday, and 9am-12pm on Saturdays.

Engine’s mission is to make arts-driven programming, cultural development, and sustainable creative entrepreneurialism an explicit community value and civic priority in Biddeford.
