Paintings by Zoo Cain

June 6 – August 15

Zoo Cain is a professional Portland, Maine based artist known for making colorful kaleidoscope abstract paintings and slicing up old license plates to use the numbers and letters for creative statements. Zoo is a prominent member in the recovery community having changed his life from one of drugs and alcohol to dedicating himself to art and mentorship for others through their own recovery. Zoo is a beloved local persona and his art can often be seen on the streets of Portland as he drives around town in his colorfully painted truck. Sadly, much of Cain’s work was destroyed in a fire in Portland in 2018. He is also the subject of a documentary, “Peace, Love and Zoo,” by Reginald Groff.

Boys & Girls Club Annual Fine Arts Exhibit 

January 29th-February 7th

 

MSA and the Boys & Girls Club welcomed Governor Janet Mills at the exhibit’s opening night on Tuesday, January 29! We are very appreciative of the Governor’s support of youth and community art programs.

A range of work was shown by Boys and Girls club members ages 7-18 years old.  Club members produce beautiful works of art ranging from watercolor to acrylic, mixed media and collage.  The Annual Fine Arts Exhibit is a wonderful opportunity for these children to exhibit their talents.
