INTERACTION: PEOPLE + PLACES

We are pleased to be opening a three-artist show “Interaction: People + Places” on Friday, September 27, from 5:00pm-6:30pm at Engine’s current exhibition space at 265 Main Street, Biddeford. The show will run through October 19.

The three artists are three young artists, Anne Buckwalter, Pilar Nadal, and Willow Ross. Buckwalter and Nadal both recently graduated from Maine College of Art, and Willow Ross from University of Southern Maine. The show is co-curated by another Maine College of Art MFA graduate, Julie Gray, whose work was featured at Engine this past month.

The bodies of work by the three artists are connected by a narrative around communication, people, and place. Buckwalter’s drawings spring forth from nightmares, news stories, traditional folklore and fiction while Willow Ross’ scenes, built atop artificial cupcakes made slightly larger than actual size are snippets of our surroundings, environments, and experiences frozen in time. Nadal’s work using traditional printmaking and participation investigates the habits, systems, and intricacies of correspondence.

Nadal and Buckwalter will host an interactive show called “N-Pilar,” a spoof on NPR, on October 18 at 7:00pm. The live show will pull from the audience and from input submitted by visitors to the exhibition.
