Maxine Fine (1942—2003) was a brilliant and talented pioneering member of the Lesbian Art Movement. Her work was published in the 1977 Lesbian Issue of Heresies, and she exhibited in the groundbreaking 1978 A Lesbian Show. Maxine was the recipient of several national awards, including the 2003 Astraea Visual Arts Award, and the Pollack-Krasner Foundation and Gottlieb Foundation grants. She wrote of her art, “Behind all of this lies the desire for completeness. And a sense that one can never know the whole story. This is the source of great sadness and also great happiness.” The exhibit runs from November 12th to December 12th, 2008.
