News from the Portland Museum of Art

In the first half of the 20th century a small group of American modernists chose to summer in the mid-coast communities south of Bath, in a region that was then known as “Seguinland.” Maine Moderns: Art in Seguinland, 1900–1940, on view June 4 through September 11, 2011, at the Portland Museum of Art, will feature more than 65 paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photographs by artists such as Mardsen Hartley, Max Weber, Marguerite and William Zorach, Gaston Lachaise, Gertrude Käsebier, and more. The exhibition will examine the close personal and professional relationships of this group and the distinctive landscape that bound them together.

The exhibition runs June 4 to September 11, 2011.
