Lauded as “the show to see this year,” Bernard Langlais features Maine artist Langlais’s expressionist paintings and abstract wood sculptures of the 1950s and early 1960s as well as his folksy carved-wood animals of the late 1960s and 1970s. Art critic Edgar Allen Beem professes, “Bernard Langlais … is not just the most important exhibition of the Maine summer art season, it is one of the best exhibitions of Maine art in years.” Featuring 187 works, the show is on view through Jan. 4, 2015.
