You are invited to attend the grand opening of – “My New Arc” – an art show by Maine artist John Bisbee – Friday, March 10, from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm at the Moss Galleries, 100 Fore Street, on Munjoy Hill.

Bisbee’s new arc is a reference to his shift from a noted sculpturer to a painter.  Perhaps that in part explains the reason for the diversity of his paintings – this first showing of his new arc is an experiment in many ways.  It’s one way to find out what works and what doesn’t work.  Bisbee is well known for his sculpting using nails.

He earned a BFA from Alfred University and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture.  He has held residences at the MacDowell Colony and Yaddo..  Bisbee has exhibited in Buffalo, New York; Kansas City, Missouri; and the Portland Museum of Art in 2008, Maine.  He has been reviewed by the  “The New Yorker,” The New York Times,” and “The Boston Globe.”

“My New Arc” opens Friday, March 10, and runs through April 16th, 2023 at Moss Gallieries, 100 Fore Street, on Munjoy HIll.
