PORTLAND, Maine - Conversations about art happen every day - in classrooms, coffee shops and museums. But Portland artist Aaron Stephan wondered what it would be like to broach the subject with strangers in an unlikely setting. And the results of that excercise are part of his latest exhibition at the Portland Museum of Art.
Aaron T Stephan is primarily a sculptor, but in his first solo exhibition at the PMA, he's introduced an audio component.
CAMDEN, Maine - Four years after the release of its album "Sea Monster," The Jason Spooner Band has a new CD, recorded in a new studio in the Midcoast town of Camden.
