“Pairings: Permanent Collection in Context,” will feature items from the Tides Institute & Museum of Art’s collection paired in unusual or unexpected ways. Works will be presented to allow for study of the connections between works of art, or between items from a particular time period and related artwork. The idea for the exhibition is rooted in feedback received by members of the public when collectible items or various ephemera from the Tides Institute collections are featured in online media, whether in daily Facebook posts, or on web resources such as the Quality of Place initiative. “When can I see those?” is a question often heard. This exhibition will provide an opportunity to feature some rarely-seen items from the collection, and place them in a context to encourage a greater conversation about the connections between artists, artwork, events from the contextual time period, and other memorabilia of historical or cultural nature.
Join us at the opening reception on Friday, June 27, from 4-7 pm, to see the exhibition, which will remain on view until Sunday, July 20. The Tides Institute & Museum of Art is at 43 Water Street, Eastport. The museum offers free admission and is open to the public Tuesday-Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
