George Mason open house and studio sale
Artist George Mason will have an open house and studio sale on Saturday, July 15 and 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The address is 123 Borland Hill Road, Nobleboro. Mason’s home/studio is known as the yellow ‘church’ in Damariscotta Mills.
“Over the past year in the studio, many small experiments have been playing out; all have been interesting in some particular way, helping to propel the inquiry onward or inward. With a large array of of smaller works on view, this is a good time to invite the public in to have a look!”
Mason has a background in ceramic architectural tile and his work is steeped in the exploration of materials and history. Richly textured and saturated with color, the largest of his ‘relief tapestries’ are pieced together panels that occupy entire walls.
A recipient of 3 National Endowment for the Arts awards, and a founder of Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts in Edgecomb, Mason has taught at Cranbrook Academy of Art, The College of Ceramics at Alfred University, Ohio State, U.C. Boulder, and Haystack.
In his home state of Maine, he has shown at the Portland Museum of Art, The Center for Maine Contemporary Art/ CMCA; with solo shows at the Farnsworth Museum, and the Bowdoin Museum of Art. Mason has completed 30 Percent for Art Projects for schools in Maine and New York City, as well as the Federal Reserve Bank in Atlanta.
