"I don’t recall ever being to an opening quite like the one that heralded “3,” the pop-up show put on by Norway-based Lights Out Gallery at the third-floor Frank Brockman Gallery in Brunswick (through April 2). I was very familiar with the work of two of the four artists in the show (Lynn Duryea and Oliver Solmitz), and found the work of the other two (Lynne Barr and Mark Little) wonderful and surprising."
– Jorge S. Arango, Portland Press Herald
Lynne Barr has been a working artist since 2016, after publishing three books with Stuart, Tabori & Chang/Abrams in which she developed new techniques, stitch patterns, and constructions for hand knitters. In 2021, Barr had her first solo show, Telling Stories, at 3S Artspace in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and was awarded a Project Grant from the Maine Arts Commission in support of this show. Barr received a BS in Mathematics with a minor in Art from the University of Miami. She was raised in Coral Gables, Florida, and currently lives in Cornish, Maine.
Professor Emerita of Art at Appalachian State University in Boone NC, Lynn Duryea was a studio artist working in Maine before earning a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Florida. She now works in Maine full-time, in South Portland and on Deer Isle. Lynn is a Founding Trustee of Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts and a co-founder of Sawyer Street Studios, an artist-owned ceramic facility in South Portland, Maine. She was a recipient of the Maine Crafts Association 2012 Master Craft Award. Her work is widely published and has been exhibited internationally.
Like many artists, art chose me, rather than my having chosen art: making is what my life is about. My own work is an interdisciplinary process ascending from an undergraduate degree in architecture (earned during a paramedic career, raising a family, and building a home in the remote woods of western Maine) combined with graduate studies in sculpture and the color relationships of painting.
