“Second Nature: Abstract Art from Maine,” the New York City gallery exhibition curated by Mark Wethli, Bowdoin’s A. LeRoy Greason Professor of Art, enjoyed a successful opening March 6 with a big turnout of Bowdoin alumni. Anne Goodyear, co-director of the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, was on hand, as were a number of other museum directors, curators and artists from Maine. The inaugural exhibition at The Curator Gallery, founded by former Time Inc. chairman and CEO Ann Moore, includes work by John Bisbee, Meghan Brady, Clint Fulkerson, Cassie Jones ’01, Joe Kievitt and Andrea Sulzer. In addition to Wethli’s, Bisbee’s and Jones’s Bowdoin connections, Brady has taught at the College and Andrea Sulzer is a former lab instructor in biology here.
