We are pleased to have Matt Demers and Allison McKeen join us from Gardiner for this week’s artist drop in! Join us via Facebook to watch Matt and Allison present and discuss their varied multimedia works.
Allison McKeen is a self-taught interdisciplinary artist who focuses primarily on block printing. She creates bold and textured designs that explore shape, color, and pattern. McKeen remarks that her work “aims to bring cheer and brightness to everyday life”. To learn more, please visit:
Matt Demers is primarily a painter and muralist and his work has been featured at Jumee Kim Gallery, UMVA Gallery, Frank Brockman Gallery, Common Street Arts Gallery, Sheepscot General Gallery, Harmon’s and Barton’s Gallery, Harlow Gallery, and a variety of venues throughout Maine. Demers is inspired by everyday objects, “I grew up making the kind of crafts you make out of toilet paper tubes and pipe cleaners, coloring outside the lines of coloring books, scribbling everywhere and on everything, reading old comics, and customizing everything I owned. My childhood home was filled with old stuff which led to my passion for objects and material.”
To watch, please visit the Common Street Arts Facebook page at 1pm on Friday the May 29. You can also watch later by choosing the “saved” videos on Facebook.
