ROCKLAND, ME.- The Center for Maine Contemporary Art announces four summer exhibitions that open to the public on Saturday, May 28 and remain on view through September 11.

Reggie Burrows Hodges | Hawkeye
Main Gallery

The acclaimed Maine-based artist will premiere a series of 17 paintings in the artist's first major, mid-career solo exhibition.

A hawkeye camera watches over a tennis match, providing high speed documentation. For Reggie Burrows Hodges, the gaze of this device is a catalyst for a series of paintings which grapple with the personal and conceptual aspects of memory, linking together paintings which depict referees, tennis matches, and family portraits.

Hodges is the recipient of The Ellis-Beauregard Foundation's 2020 Fellowship in the Visual Arts. His work is represented in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art; Whitney Museum of American Art (both, New York); The Art Institute of Chicago; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Hammer Museum at UCLA (Los Angeles); and the Portland Museum of Art. He is represented by Karma (New York) and Dowling Walsh Gallery (Rockland).

Veronica Perez
Guy D. Hughes Gallery

The artist will premiere a new body of sculptures made from braided and woven artificial hair, a material that Perez has been deeply invested in for the past three years. The artist’s intricately detailed works act as monuments to feelings of love, loss, and grief and are symbols for exploring the forgotten and stolen histories of the Latinx diaspora. Veronica Perez created the works on view during a year-long residential fellowship at the Colby College Museum of Art's Lunder Institute of American Art.

Veronica Perez is the recipient of The Ellis-Beauregard Foundation's 2021 Fellowship in the Visual Arts and has exhibited in Maine at the Portland Museum of Art; Cove Street Arts; New Systems Exhibitions; Colby College; and SPACE.

The View from Here
Bruce Brown Gallery + Karen and Rob Brace Hall

CMCA will present the thematic group exhibition, The View from Here, featuring works by over a dozen artists (including two collaboratives) who have previously exhibited or otherwise been involved at CMCA across our history (1952-2022). The celebratory exhibition will coincide with CMCA’s 70th anniversary, and the unifying concept will be unique and dynamic ways of looking at the world through new or recent works, underscoring CMCA’s forward-thinking trajectory. Artists include: Katherine Bradford, Ann Craven, Lois Dodd, Linden Frederick, Tessa Green O’Brien, Wade Kavenaugh & Stephen Nguyen, Aaron Stephan, tectonic industries, Joyce Tenneson, and Nicole Wittenberg, among others.

Also on view

Yashua Klos | Our Living
Marilyn Moss Rockefeller Lobby + Karen and Rob Brace Hall

The exhibition will premiere the large, commissioned installation, Our Living, by the New York-based artist Yashua Klos. In Our Living, a working collective of hands hold letter forms that are being overgrown with sprawling vines and wildflowers. The work seems to be a public announcement of Black resilience and prosperity being nurtured through communal action. In this sense, Klos also tied woodblock printing to its history as a medium for grass roots political messaging. This installation follows Klos's first museum solo exhibition titled, Our Labour, where he highlighted the invisible contribution of Black workers in building the American auto industry.

Yashua Klos has exhibited at venues including the Wellin Museum of Art (Clinton, NY); Galerie Anne DeVillepoix (Paris); the Weatherspoon Museum (Greensboro, NC); BRIC (Brooklyn); and in New York at Jack Tilton; International Print Center; and the Studio Museum in Harlem (New York), among other venues.

Reggie Burrows Hodges: Hawkeye and Yashua Klos: Our Living are organized by Executive Director and Chief Curator, Timothy Peterson. Veronica Perez is organized by Curatorial Associate and Exhibition Manager, Rachel Romanski. The View from Here is co-curated by Timothy Peterson and Rachel Romanski.
