upcycling pot warp

Eric Darling to present his Drift Rope Project at Merryspring Nature Center 

Event has passed

    CAMDEN — Local artist Eric Darling will lead an outdoor presentation on his current exhibition, The Drift Rope Project, Tuesday, June 20, at 12 p.m., at Merryspring Nature Center. 

    The Drift Rope Project, installed at Merryspring Nature Center, is a public installation sculpture funded in part by a grant from the Maine Arts Commission to draw awareness of the potential of upcycled pot warp as an art medium that is both interactive and visual in nature.

    Darling, a self-taught artist native to New England, earned a BA in Anthropology at San Diego State University. Interests such as photography, travel, and culture, as well as an overall appreciation for the natural world are all evident in his work. He oscillates between mediums using elements from his photography to catch impressions of fleeting moments with oil on canvas; or using finished wood panels and stains, and upcycled pot warp in mixed media assembly.  

    This program is part of the Summer Talk series at Merryspring, sponsored by Renys – A Maine Adventure, and co-sponsored by First National Bank and Camden Riverhouse Hotel.

    Attendance is free for members; $5 for non-members.
