Grace DeGennaro’s paintings and watercolor drawings, a collection of which can be viewed in our Art Lounge, evoke feelings of stillness, balance, and harmony. While striving for symmetry and precision, each piece is subtly asymmetric, reminding us of our collective humanity.

DeGennaro will explore the sources of her inspiration, including sacred geometry, traditional symbols, Josef Albers’ color theory, and her forty-year practice of recording dreams. Additionally, she will examine the archetypal images that serve as the foundation of her studio practice and their ability to communicate ideas transcending religion and culture.

Grace DeGennaro’s work has been internationally exhibited at galleries and institutions, including Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Rockland, ME; EFA Project Space, New York, NY; United States Embassy, Doha, Qatar; United States Embassy, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, Africa; Ellsworth Gallery, Santa Fe, NM; Visual Art Center of New Jersey, Summit, NJ; and New England Foundation for the Arts, Boston, MA. Her work is included in various permanent institutional and private collections, including Tang Teaching Museum, Saratoga Springs, NY; Heckscher Museum, Huntington, NY; Gund Collection, Boston, MA; Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington DC; Ballinglen Museum of Contemporary Art, County Mayo, Ireland and Wellington Management, Boston. She is the recipient of numerous prestigious grants, has completed two residencies at The Catwalk Institute, Catskills, NY, and was a visiting artist at numerous colleges on the east coast, including Bowdoin College, Skidmore College and Colby College. She received an MFA from Columbia University and a BS from Skidmore College. DeGennaro lives and works in Yarmouth, Maine.

The Currently Speaking series hosts experts in various contemporary art genres and media to encourage casual discourse and meaningful interactions between our community, speakers, and the art they showcase.

All series events start at 5pm, last for an hour, and are free to the public with a suggested donation of $10. No reservation is required, and the gallery will be open beforehand for viewing the current exhibition, A Place of Memory. Refreshments will be served.
