Current Exhibit

ApiAriadnae

The Cut Paper World of J. M. Frase-White will run June 23 through September 8, 2017 at Emporium Framing & Gallery in South Berwick, Maine. James Frase-White's cut paper pieces depict a range of imagery from ApiAriadane, goddess of Honeyflies and Butterbees to his dog and former students flying a kite on the beach. The exhibit also includes two of his stainglass pieces.

James Frase-White working in his studio in Concord, Vermont states, “My art has evolved out of necessity. As a child I was fascinated by drawing, but had no knowledge of art until high school, with an amazing teacher, Mrs. Lorraine Warwick as instructor, who took our class on trips to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC and taught the rudiments of art.

I went on to Duquesne University for a degree in Existential Philosophical Psychology, where I learned that my altruistic desire to help others did not reside in mental health, but in creating art.  The creative desire has relentlessly underpinned my studies and all work that I did subsequently.  Drifting from the fascination with stone carving, I studied stained glass, which became my major art/craft for many years.  I always had the release of a creative medium no matter what I did to make a living.

ApiAriadnae is Goddess of Honeyflies and Butterbees, who protects the tiny creates we habitually salvage in our wanton destruction of the habitats we share with them.
