Gallery Show at the Salt Institute

Dear CAFAM members,

The upcoming gallery show of students’ work at the Salt Institute, will include work by Liz Mak.

She will be presenting a photo essay and multimedia piece on the Cough family.

Liz writes, “My personal project involves the Cough family — I first learned about Barbara’s great grandfather, who was the first Chinese man to become a naturalized citizen in Maine; I then learned of her two daughters — Catie and Kimberly — who she and her partner, Marilyn, adopted from China. Their daughters represent the next generation in their modern Chinese family, and I’m interested in exploring how the mothers integrate Chinese culture into their daughters’ lives.”

The show opens on Thursday, May 16, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm at the Salt Institute, 581 Congress in Portland.

Best,
Craig
