The Good Supply Celebrates its 10th Anniversary
with “Whale Club” by Artist Cindy Pease Roe
Pemaquid, ME - A gathering in Maine’s midcoast; farmers, conservationists, artists, scientists, and more; to celebrate a love for the ocean, community, and environmental stewardship. A cumulative 10 years of values and progress for The Good Supply and its partners.
The Good Supply of Pemaquid, ME, will celebrate its 10th anniversary on Saturday, August 6, 2022 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm with the opening of “Whale Club,” an exhibition featuring the installation of a nine-foot whale sculpture by UpSculpt artist Cindy Pease Roe and undersea-themed art from a selection of Maine’s creatives that make up the 90+ artists represented in the retail-gallery.
The public is invited to the celebration which will debut new art by 5 artists and include local food and drinks to enjoy, community connection, displays and information from local marine biologists, and special edition merchandise to shop. Additionally, there will be kids activities and garden-party appropriate festivities.
“Whale Club” is the follow-up event to The Good Supply’s successful 2016 art show “Whale of a Good Time,” which explored the intersection of art, marine science, and the environment and featured Cindy Pease Roe as she formed UpSculpt. Cindy Pease Roe is known in art circles around the world including the famed Art Basel Miami for her transformation of colorful collections of ocean trash into playful and imaginative works to focus on the problem of plastic pollution in our oceans.
“Breach the Beach” and gather materials for artist Cindy Pease Roe. As usual, we've counted on artist collaboration at every stage. The collage above shows graphics by Jessie Renew, painting by MollyMaps, and an Earth illustration by Hannah Rosengren Studios.
Community-sourced beach trash is being collected by The Good Supply through August 1. Neighbors from Pemaquid, and those from neighboring towns, are being asked to bring to the barn what they find on the beach (plastic and other debris). The goal is to combine the “reclaimed litter” with plastics gathered by The Rozalia Project for a Clean Ocean, a woman-run non-profit that will engage in a broad Maine coast clean-up in June in connection with the Ocean Conservancy. The materials will be used by Roe and other volunteers to create the whale sculpture for The Good Supply exhibition.
In the lead up to the ‘Whale Club” art party, The Good Supply will host a morning outdoor yoga class with visiting instructor Adam Weatherford on August 4th at 8:30am for one hour. Following the class, attendees are invited to shop and view artwork in The Good Supply’s post and beam barn. Adam is 200 HR RYT yoga alliance instructor, a certified stress and relaxation therapist, and a certified sports nutritionist. He serves on the board of Donate Yoga, and runs his own non-profit, Adams Balanced Citta, focused on healing through recreation. His class will be a hatha and vinyasa focused session with mindful breathe and movements.
Inspiration for the exhibit comes from the American Museum of Natural History in New York where artist and collaborator of The Good Supply Alec Madoff serves as the Museum’s senior principal preparator. Mr. Madoff will participate in the installation and debut sculpture alongside his own assemblages included at “Whale Club.” The goal is to inspire connection with the ocean, collective waste, and creatures big and small.
“The nexus where art and science meet makes for dream collaborations in Midcoast Maine,” says Catherine. “The Darling Marine Center [University of Maine’s marine laboratory] is here as is the Bigelow Laboratory of Ocean Science. Artists and naturalists in Maine share a common point—both groups find inspiration from Maine’s coastal environment.” Both marine science institutions will be represented at the event.
Transforming colorful collections of ocean trash into graphic sculptures of sea life—real and imagined—is a signature of Roe. She says, “Being aware of the accumulation of plastic waste is important. We need to reimagine these materials to make sure people are aware of our collective impact.” The artist initiated UpSculpt with whale forms to illustrate the enormity of our problem with plastics in the ocean.
About Cindy Pease Roe
Artist, educator, and marine advocate, Cindy Roe takes inspiration from her deep, immovable kinship with the sea to craft her unforgettable paintings and sculptures. A lifetime of living both on and next to the water has enabled her to express its serenity, history, function, and vulnerability. Roe incorporates a variety of media to capture the depth of her subjects. She deftly paints historic, and often endangered working waterfronts. But most importantly, she has garnered the interest of art lovers and environmentalists alike by collecting plastic flotsam she finds along the shoreline and transforming it into thought-provoking, visually stimulating three- dimensional forms.
