Exhibit depicts Alzheimer’s through art

Leave a comment

Somewhere, a series of paintings, drawings and video by Brooklyn, NY-based artist Jason Bard Yarmosky, explores issues of aging and, specifically, dementia and Alzheimer’s. The exhibit, co-sponsored by St. Joseph Healthcare Foundation and the University of Maine Center on Aging, runs now through September 2 at the University of Maine Museum of Art. Focal point of this exhibit is a large three-panel work depicting the artist’s grandmother.

“What’s happening to my grandmother is happening to so many people now,” says Yarmosky in an article published recently in the Bangor Daily News. “Sometimes she is just lost, and other times she is still so clear. Of course, she’s still in there.”

Museum hours are 10 am to 5 pm Tuesday through Saturday. It is located at 40 Harlow Street in downtown Bangor.
