: Bell’s small, powerful recent graphite drawings embody the force of nature. They depict mysterious cloud-covered mountains, fog-shrouded craggy fingers of land jutting into the ocean and fragmented skylines in the low light of dawn or dusk.

Selections From the Permanent Collection: Recent Acquisitions: Works historical and contemporary represent a wide variety of media and subject matter. Artists with Maine connections include Marsden Hartley, William Manning, Charlie Hewitt and Andrew Wyeth. Others represented include Odilon Redon, Enrique Chagoya and Beth Van Hoesen. Helping to create the exhibition were curatorial interns Cara Garcia-Bou ’13 and Nell Wachsberger ’13.
