“WOVEN: The Work of Nancy Hemenway Barton”

Maine Fiberarts presents an exhibition of woven work from October 10 through December 23, 2017. Also on display are examples of Wabanaki basketry and other weavings by members of Maine Fiberarts.

The work of Nancy Hemenway Barton is on display as part of a “trail” of exhibitions and educational programs at several different art venues commemorating the artist's work, life and art career.

About the Trail

The exhibition “Ahead of Her Time: The Life and Art of Nancy Hemenway Barton” opened on September 28 at the UNE Art Gallery and will run through December 20, 2017 with an educational program and a series of events on October 14. Family and friends are encouraged to visit the Trail in its entirety, or at least the local venues on October 14. Maine Fiberarts' Executive Director Christine Macchi will take part in a panel discussion at UNE on October 14, from 4-6 p.m. Apart from the exhibition at UNE's Art Gallery, during October-December, Hemenway's work appears at Gulf of Maine Research Institute, Portland; Joanne Waxman Library at Maine College of Art, Portland; Portland Museum of Art, Portland; Bates Olin Arts Center; Lewiston; Central Maine Community College, Auburn; Farnsworth Art Museum, Rockland; Maine Fiberarts, Topsham; and Wheaton College in Norton, MA.
