Maitland’s Art & History museum complex wakes up into 2015 with a surreal dream of a show: Art and the Subconscious: Salvador Dalí & Andre Smith
, which pairs enigmatic images from Dalí’s “Conquest of Cosmos” series with ethereal watercolors and abstract sculptures by the Maitland Art Center founder.
The inaugural Culture Pop party of 2015 offers a first look at this stunning show, as well as an introduction to two new Artists-in-Residence, Masha Ryskin
and Serge Marchetta
. Also on hand, Artist-in-Action Maxwell Hartley
(one of our favorite local woodworkers — yes, we have enough to have favorites) stages a pop-up art installation in the newly renovated Germaine Marvel building, and writers from the Kerouac Project
engage guests in a freestyle writing game meant to unlock inner creativity. Looks like this year is going to open your mind.
