“Conover-Cable Study: 2” is a mixed media piece that features parts from a Conover-Cable upright piano (circa 1915). The piano was passed down through three generations of a particular family before making its way to me. As part of its series for “Maine Things Considered” called “Works in Progress,” Maine Public Broadcasting Network aired the radio piece “Piano Artist” (produced by Patty Wight) about Louise and her work in August, 2012. She was also interviewed at that time by Daniel Wakin of The New York Times for his article “Where A Condemned Piano Can Win Appeal.” Boston Home Magazine featured Louise in the article “Artisan Next Door: Key Player” published in their Fall 2011 issue.  Louise lives and works in South Portland, where she shares her home with two cats and her studio with thousands of piano parts. http://www.louisephilbrick.com/

James T Greco – Art

James T Greco

James Greco is a Brooklyn based painter and sculptor whose work is a continued exploration of improvisational mark making that in turn, develops into a narrative abstraction. The work flows as pure without emotional or intellectual constructs or concepts -the marks leading to the discovery of the picture that lies between the gestural and referential. His work is collected both in Europe and the US. Using traditional oil paints, epoxy resins, house paints and other mixed media, his abstract variations range from small explorations on paper to large scale paintings. http://www.jamestgreco.com/


 

Phillip Roebuck – Music

“To be in a room with Roebuck while he’s performing is a very thrilling thing. He is one guy, making a lot of noise on a number of instruments at once, and singing so passionately you’d be vegetable to not be moved by the whole of his performance”. As Pfac’s Marketing Director Mike McGrann commented succinctly, “Philip Roebuck is one of the most unbelievable performances that I have ever seen.”  http://philliproebuck.com
