The Bowdoin College Museum of Art exhibitions Maurice Prendergast: By the Sea and August, featuring the works of Katherine Bradford, are the subjects of focused attention in the Boston Globe and Portland Press Herald.

Globe reviewer Sebastian Smee calls the Prendergast exhibition “the loveliest, most languid art show of this New England summer.” Read the Boston Globe review here.

In addition to a short video, the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram affords the Katherine Bradford show quite a bit of ink, noting that the arist, who summers in Brunswick, has always coveted a show at the Museum of Art. 

“Every summer, I would invite the curator to my studio. Every summer, I would give the curator lunch and laugh at their jokes,” she said. “And then I met Joachim [Homann, Bowdoin College Museum of Art Curator], and he laughed at my jokes.” Read the Portland Press Herald piece.
