ROCKPORT, Maine — Belfast artist Reese Inman will give a gallery talk, “REMIX: Using the Computer to Reinvigorate Artistic Process,” at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 25, at the Center for Maine

Contemporary Art. She will discuss using computers as a tool for enabling new artistic practices and reinvigorating traditional ones. Topics will include data art, creative processes involving extreme repetition, and conversion and-or transformation of media.

“Technology,” Inman said, “permits us to extend ourselves beyond the physical limits of time and space. [It also] offers equal potential for separation, for distancing ourselves, for fantasy, and for the control and customization of daily experience.” A graduate of Harvard University, Inman’s formal educational background includes studies in studio art, film, literature, computer programming, classical piano and intermedia. Her work is on exhibit at CMCA in “Reese Inman: Burn Drawings and Recent Paintings,” one of four exhibitions that run through Sunday, Sept. 25. She is represented by Gallery NAGA in Boston and Simon Gallery in Morristown, N.J. Her work is in numerous public and private collections.

Admission to the gallery talk is $5; free to CMCA members. People with any level of computer ability may attend. For reservations or more information, email info@cmcanow.org or call 236-2875.

Four new exhibitions open at CMCA Saturday, Oct 1.

The Work of the Hand craft show and sale will be held Oct. 7-10 at Pascal Hall in Rockport. Proceeds from the craft show benefit CMCA’s exhibitions and programs.
