Abstract

Profile of Brian White of Union, the son of a Maine clamdigger, who had an antique shop of his own by the time he was 14. John and Sarah Ames, who own an antique shop in Camden and are well-known figures in the Maine art world, first discovered and are showing White's unusual art. Recently the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Mass., purchased his "Island Bride," an assemblage of plaster and seashells. He once studied for the ministry and rediscovered art after an auto accident left him with a head injury. Lately he has been working on a fabric-over-wood construction inspired by grange suppers. His creations are stunning in their complexity and precision.
