Local artist Martha Piscuskas, whose exhibition “The Dearly Kept” can still be seen (and heard) in many venues around town, will give a presentation about her creative process Thursday, June 9 at 7 p.m. at the Ivan O. Davis Library, 59 Main St./Route 173.

The work depicts objects long-kept by Liberty residents including audio recordings about each piece. Piscuskas will address how this project is a combination of high tech, historical preservation, cultural anthropology “and just down-home visiting neighbors.” 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.

“Many people have wondered how I made these, so I’ll also bring a sample of my materials,” she said.

All are welcome to this free event. The “Dearly Kept” project was funded in part from a grant from the Maine Arts Commission. For more information, visit eluxstudio.blogspot.com or call 592-2070.
