Stephen Burt, M.F.A., chair and associate professor in the Department of Arts, Andy Rosen, adjunct professor in the Department of Arts, and Art Gallery Director Hilary Irons will have works featured in the Portland Public Library's new exhibit “Folkland.”

Folklore and fairytales have long reflected our desire to understand the natural world and human behavior. Stories and illustrations connect us to each other and show how our relationship with nature is constantly evolving.

Crafting a new kind folklore, the artists tell a story of the natural world now, threatened by change yet still rife with mystery and wonder. Their works ask us to revisit and reclaim our relationship with the world around us.

The exhibit opens during First Friday Art Walk on October 4 and runs through December 21, at the Lewis Gallery in the Portland Public Library.
