Chocolate Church hosts exhibition of women’s works through Nov. 18

BATH — The Chocolate Church Arts Gallery is hosting the exhibition “Hunting Positive,” which features writers and visual artists discussing the difficult times we are currently surviving.
The free exhibition runs through Nov. 18 at the gallery, 804 Washington St.
The exhibition features 15 women’s voices assembled in a show featuring works on paper, installations, sculpture and painting, alongside essays and poetry.
There is also an interactive piece that gives visitors an opportunity to contemplate how they are coping with the stresses of living in 2020. The show will have a walking tour in video format for people who can’t travel to Maine. The artists all reside in Maine, from Bath to Deer Isle, as well as Massachusetts.
Artists are Susan Webster, Susan Wilder, Berri Kramer, Elena Brunner, Deb Putnoi, Lorry Fleming, Leah Sugarman, Kathleen Raddatz, Penny Lane, Kathleen Bird, Laurel Wishman, Darreby Ambler, Kristina Goransson, Lisa Goren and Kimberly Becker.
“Hunting Positive” is curated by Becker, of Bath. Becker is a feminist artist who uses her work to tell women’s stories. In 2017, she was the curator of the exhibition “A Woman’s Place,” which first appeared just outside Boston, where she lived at the time, and then traveled to the Chocolate Church Arts Center. It was an exhibition of work by 16 women that discussed the issues around being female one year into the Trump administration. The show was well received in both locations, and was featured on the front page of the Metro West section of the Boston Globe.
