"This year's Biennial is a really lively snapshot of art making in Maine today, showcasing a wide variety of work in all mediums including strong examples of painting, sculpture, photography, textiles, installations, and video work. There is truly something for everyone in the show and I think visitors will be impressed by the quality and diversity of the work." CMCA Director Suzette McAvoy.
The CMCA Biennial Exhibition typically takes place in the fall of even numbered years. The concept of an open juried competition at CMCA dates back to 1978, when then director Ben Goldsmith presented the first Juried Exhibition. It was the only continuing statewide juried exhibition until the Portland Museum of Art introduced its first Biennial in 1998.
