I am donating Tandem, a monotype print, to Art for Marc, the first annual art auction and reception in support of the University of New England’s Marine Animal Rehabilitation Center (MARC).
I love to swim and identify with the swift and graceful movements of marine mammals. The animals I depicted swimming in tandem are river dolphins, a type of dolphin that lives in the cold Maine waters.
While looking out at the Kennebec River at Fort Popham several years back, I saw a pair of river dolphins leap out of the river and dive several times. It was an exquisite sight to see these animals leaping out of the water and arching downward on their journey to the sea. I am very pleased to support MARC in it’s mission.
The UNE Art Gallery is located at 716 Stevens Avenue, Portland, Maine. The Auction and reception will be held on Tuesday, August 31, 2010 from 5-9 pm. For more information visit www.une.edu/research/msc/marc/. Mark your calendars for this special event!
