Join Skowhegan and the Portland Museum of Art for a conversation inspired by the discursive environment on campus and the PMA’s current exhibition, Skowhegan at Seventy. Artist Polly Apfelbaum (Skowhegan resident faculty, 1999) and art historian Faye Hirsch will explore how the printmaking process sparks a spirit of inquiry and experimentation in the studio, and delve into the intersection between printmaking and painting in contemporary practice.
