ROCKPORT, Maine — Artist Alan Magee will hold his annual Open Studio from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.Saturday-Sunday, Aug. 6-7, at Pascal Hall, 86 Pascal Avenue in Rockport. The public is invited to attend free of charge.

This year Magee will introduce four new tapestries, a series of recent black and white monotypes, and a group of thematically related relief sculptures. The new work continues and expands on Magee’s two concurrent themes: the celebration of beauty, as found in some of its most unassuming guises, and the artist’s reflections on violence and war.

This exhibition includes the latest additions to Magee’s graphic examinations of human violence and suffering. The new monotypes were completed last winter and early spring as responses to our ongoing wars and their often hidden human costs. For more information visit http://www.alanmagee.com
