The Constellation Gallery, home of the Maine Artists Collective, is pleased to announce their Dreams exhibit for June. The exhibit will have works from 14 different artists on display, each with their unique styles and disciplines. From paintings, cabinets of curiosity, photographs, to maps and much more the artists have created 27 works of wonder, mystery and magic.
Anastasia Weigle’s piece, Dreaming Elephants, was chosen for as the Best of Show.
“Elephants have always found their way into my art as objects of reverence or playfulness,” said Anastasia Weigle. “In Dreaming Elephants the elephant is aware of all things at all times—they are divine.”
Weigle has an extensive background in library sciences, archival processes and preservation, and book conservation. Her technical background combines with her artistic insights and skill to always create a cohesive structured body of work, which encourages the viewer to discover a piece of themselves inside her art.
