Alan Magee : Maine master( Visual )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His paintings invite wonder at the inherent dignity and beauty of simple objects such as letters, tools, and stones that are imbued with a history of communication, labor, and time ... But [he] also produces another kind of work, his monotypes for which the test is to meet their gaze. The faces in these monotypes bear witness to the world's history of oppression and cruelty ... This portrait of Alan Magee is one of the on-going series of the Maine Masters Project, documentaries of Maine artists interviewed in their studios discussing their lives and work."--Container

Olive Pierce: Maine master and ; Olive Pierce: Children of Iraq( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maine Master: "For photographer Olive Pierce the part is never more important than the whole, the individual more important than the community, and the photographer never as important as the people being photographed. Her black and white photographs document the spirit of community whether she finds it in high school kids (No Easy Roses), or among Maine fishing families (Up River), or with children in Iraq. She never sensationalizes. Instead, Olive Pierce seeks to portray the intersection of the dual mysteries of individuality and collective spirit, to make visible the fabric of community. Ms. Pierce received the Peace and Justice Award from the City of Cambridge, Massachusetts, and has won two Bunting Fellowships from Harvard."--Container
