HOME/LAND: A multimedia exhibit

HOMELAND

Through an open call, MFT Gallery invited farmers, artists, artisans and writers living in Maine, from diverse social-economic, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, to create art, craft or poetry which reflects on their unique relationship to home/land.

MFT Gallery asked that the works submitted “speak to a deep relationship which comes from cultivating the land, or a longing for connection with the land.” Art and poetry selected for the final exhibition includes work by farmers/artists which expresses the relationship with the land they cultivate; work by farmers/artists who have been separated from home/land in some way and are cultivating a new relationship to the land they are on; and work by those who are longing for a renewed relationship to home/land.

MFT will host the exhibit at its Gallery in Belfast from November 12, 2018 through March 1, 2019.

Art talks and reception will coincide with Belfast’s Holiday Art Walk, Friday December 7th: art talks at 5pm, opening and art walk 5:30-8pm.
