The UMF Art Gallery features work by Jesse Potts, a sculptor, artist and assistant professor of art.

The exhibit, “Hot Dust,” is on display from Thursday through March 6 at the gallery, located at the University of Maine at Farmington. An opening reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the gallery.

Potts will show a collection of his sculptures, prints and animated installations that explore the intersection of place, memory and time. A recurring theme in this body of work is references to roads. “Potts is attracted to the road in not only its symbolic reference to mobility and to the line between two points, but also its coded system of rules,” according to a press release about the exhibit. “Some works contain momentum, some works are the residue of momentum and some remain lost in between.”

The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information, go to
