08 May Visual Artists Announced for All Roads 2016
As an extension of our mission to showcase indie + Maine talent, this year we have the pleasure of hosting a handful of Maine based visual artists to be mixed in with this years musicians. The addition of visual arts allows us to highlight another sector of the Maine creative arts community.
The artists and artist groups to be featured are:
Fast Food Prints, a traveling screen printing studio founded by Portland, Maine artist Shawn Brewer.
Freehand Armada a Portland, Maine based collective of artists, illustrators and designers working in unison to create a contemporary arts dialogue rooted in a skate and punk rock ideal often under-represented in Maine. To be featured at the Festival this year is “Summer Mix-Tape” event, founded in the summer of 2015.
Hannah Berta, emerging Rockport, Maine-based installation artist cuts away organic shapes from yards of “altered” paper creating an intricate lace of mark-making using form, light and shadow.
