Farnsworth Art Museum: Women

In 2017 the Farnsworth is presenting two major exhibitions featuring the work of women who have played important roles in twentieth-century American art, both of whom also had deep connections to Maine:  Marguerite Zorach and Louise Nevelson.

10/6/17 to 04/1/18

Black and White Exhibition

Louise Nevelson is recognized as one of the most important sculptors of the twentieth century whose wood sculptures, painted in black or white, revolutionized artists’ ideas of what sculpture could be. This exhibition will feature signature examples of these works, drawn from the Farnsworth’s collection, the second largest collection of Nevelson’s work in the world.

Kennebunkport Food and Wine Festival

Maine’s largest food and wine festival—a week-long celebration of the chefs, craft brewers and spirits makers, artists, and people who make our state such an amazing place to live. It’s also the home to an event that we like to think of as the official kick-off of summer.

From intimate dinners in private homes where friends new and old dine on specially created menus and talk about the art that surrounds them, to cocktail parties and after parties, to food and dance parties like Spirit and Grand Finale, the Kennebunkport Festival is, truly, an experience that’s all about creating lasting friendships and happy memories.

Of course in addition to the dinners and parties, you’ll also enjoy art openings and the Maine Craft Music Festival that features local musicians and local brewers.
