Andrea Waxman Mulcahy - Kennebunk, ME (web)
Sculptor

"Time In Space" | Steel | 34"X32"X30"

Artist Statement: "My work illuminates an energetic state that exists yet is generally not seen. Movement as it's captured in space, on earth, and within the physical body indicates pathways and energy flow. Visualization of this movement brings to mind that which is not seen in the world but still exists. The etheric field, where an exchange exists between the universal energy field and the physical body, can be felt yet not seen. It's my interest to illustrate that type of energy flow through three dimensional lines. I'm intrigued the way simple lines can become complex structures and how complex structures can be reduced to simple lines." -- Andrea Waxman Mulcahy

Judy O'Donnell - Falmouth, ME (web)
Sculptor

"Aveta" | Bronze | 17"HX9'"WX8"D

Artist Statement: "The natural environment and man's primitive inter-connectedness to it are my inspiration. My bronze sculptures depict life's outer and inner experiences, it's myths and mystique, through creatures, their symbols, natural settings, textures and rhythms. There is energy in all things. Even from seeming endpoints can come transformation, regeneration and rebirth. The biological rhythms in man and nature include those occurring in the transition from one state of being to another. Examples of such rhythms can be found in an autobiographical collection from an eight year period of breast cancer discovery, treatment and survival. This period doesn't define or overshadow my 30 years as an artist. Rather, the works relay a literal and figurative transformation from the inside out, during which customary perspectives of time, self and consciousness ceded to nature's own processes. By staying open to this discomforting re-ordering as nature dictated my processes, regeneration materialized in a series of "Mindscapes" on canvas and reliefs constructed of wood and found objects. The bronzes cast in year eight embody the tempered re-joining of disconnected parts culminating in the triumph of healing and renewal. Taking inspiration from what nature hands me also happens on daily walks in the woods. Staying artistically open to these experiences, I find the surroundings rich in visual and textural imagery and found objects. From the twisting, knotted forms of ancient tree roots to the filigree and subtle patterns of tree fungus, nature's transformational evidence is everywhere. From the old, even "dead," emerges the new. My job as an artist is to stay open to the wonders and keep up with its revealings." -- Judy O'Donnell

Maine Artists Quotes

Maine-Magazine

Since 2008, Maine Arts Scene online magazine has been promoting Maine artists and arts organizations in new and enterprising ways. We quietly revolutionized the local magazine world by offering a truly democratic voice to Maine artists and arts organizations throughout the state. For a small fee, individual artists and arts organizations can submit their press releases to present their work and promote their events on our popular site and social networks. As we reached the 10,000 visits per month milestone in 2009, we decided to push the online magazine boundaries one step further by launching the first statewide juried multi-disciplinary virtual online showcase. We created a unique virtual experience that resembles an actual gallery space, with various rooms to navigate and art work displayed to scale. In 2012, Maine Art Scene is going one step further.  Maine artists and private collectors of Maine art will soon be able to create online stores and sell their work. Arts organizations including galleries, museums, and non-profits will also be able to set up online gifts shops,  box offices and donation pages.
