The Maine Craft Interview Project is a Maine Crafts Association initiative bringing artists at different career points (and sometimes generations) together in an interview led by the emerging artist. The emerging artist designs interview questions and interviews an established artist of their choosing.
In its third episode, Kincaid Pearson interviews Angela Adams.
Kincaid Person is a Maine College of Art alumni from the fashion and textile department. He is a multi-disciplinary artist and designer with a focus on decor and furniture, incorporating a tactile element through textiles. His practice also incorporates non-functional work paintings and other 2D art. Kincaid enjoys the abstraction of objects that allows the viewer to see something that may not be there. Interpretation by the viewer is a key part of his practice.
Angela Adams is a Portland-based artist who launched her area rug and furniture company with her husband in 1998. Angela Adams designs her rugs which are then handmade by skilled artisans around the world, and the furniture is handcrafted by master furniture makers in their Portland studio.
The interview series fosters connections, mentorship, community and storytelling. It introduces emerging artists to our craft community and is a chance for established artists to reflect and support emerging artists in the field.
