Belfast artist Reese Inman will give a gallery talk titled REMIX: Using the Computer to Reinvigorate Artistic Process Sunday, Sept. 25 at 3 p.m. at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, 162 Russell Ave. Admission to the gallery talk is $5; free for CMCA members.

Inman will discuss using computers as a tool for enabling new artistic practices and reinvigorating traditional ones. Topics will include data art, creative processes involving extreme repetition and conversion and/or transformation of media.

“Technology permits us to extend ourselves beyond the physical limits of time and space … [It also] offers equal potential for separation, for distancing ourselves, for fantasy and for the control and customization of daily experience,” Inman said.

A graduate of Harvard University, Inman has a formal educational background that includes studies in studio art, film, literature, computer programming, classical piano and intermedia. Her work is currently on exhibit at CMCA in “Reese Inman: Burn Drawings and Recent Paintings,” which is one of four exhibitions that run through the day of her talk. She is represented by Gallery NAGA in Boston and Simon Gallery in Morristown, N.J.; and her work is in numerous public and private collections.

People with any level of computer ability are welcome. For reservations or more information, send email to or call 236-2875. Four new exhibitions will open on Oct. 1; and the “Work of the Hand” craft show and sale will be at Pascal Hall in Rockport from Oct. 7 through 10. Proceeds from Work of the Hand benefit CMCA’s exhibitions and programs.
