DK in the news -- OK!

Here's a nice article and great images from a Bangor Daily News article about the Dearly Kept show.


Dearly Kept Artist to Give Talk in Liberty June 9

Liberty artist Martha Piscuskas, whose exhibition The Dearly Kept can still be seen (and heard) in many venues around the town of Liberty, will be giving a presentation about her creative process on Thursday, June 9th at 7 PM at the Liberty Library.   The work depicts objects long-kept by Liberty residents, including audio recordings about each piece.   “I’ll address how this project is a combination of high tech, historical preservation, cultural anthropology, and just down-home visiting neighbors,” says Piscuskas. She will talk about the creative genesis of the project, her process of engaging community members, and will lead a discussion on why we keep what we do.   She adds, “Many people have wondered how I made these, so I’ll also be bringing a sample of my materials.”  All are welcome to this free event.   This project was funded in part from a grant from the Maine Arts Commission.  For more information, visit or call 592-2070.
