Art lecture at MAG about work by Joseph Fiore

Two former Damariscotta gallery owners, who showed the work of Joseph Fiore, will share memories of this great American artist at the Maine Art Gallery (MAG) on Saturday, June 1, at 4 p.m. The lecture coincides with the current exhibition ‘Generations: The Legacy of Mentors’, in which Fiore has a number of works.

Yvette Torres, owner of Yvette Torres Fine Art, located first in Damariscotta and then in Rockland, showed work by renowned Black Mountain College artists, including Fiore. Geoffrey Robinson owned the River Gallery in Damariscotta and showed American painting from the 19th and 20th centuries, including work by Fiore. Robinson was also a personal friend and visited Fiore’s farm studio in Jefferson when the artist and his wife were in Maine for the summer. They will be in conversation with MAG board member Kay Tobler Liss, who met Fiore in the early 2000s and wrote about his art.

The show, which has received widespread acclaim and features a full-color catalogue, runs until June 9. The Maine Art Gallery gratefully acknowledges season sponsor Sherri Dunbar of Tim Dunham Realty and title sponsor Islebrook Village in Wiscasset, an Everbrook Senior Living community. A donation attributed to Friends of the Maine Art Gallery is the exhibition sponsor. Opening hours are Thursday to Sunday from 11am to 4pm. The gallery is located at 15 Warren St., Wiscasset.
