Carve out some time to visit Cove Street Arts in Portland for the incredible Jon Imber Retrospective show. The exhibit spans the career of the late Boston- and Maine-based artist. You’ll leave with an understanding of his changing style and subject matter, ranging from figurative painting and portraits in the ’80s, to plein air landscapes of the ’90s, to abstract works that began in the 2000s, and finally to his portraits of family and friends, created in the time leading up to his death in 2014 from ALS.
