Like her work, Sakanishi has been a solid, if sometimes quiet, presence in Maine art for nearly four decades (she graduated from Maine College of Art when it was still called the Portland School). But she has avoided the pitfalls that often come with trying to maintain artistic vitality, intensity, and integrity over a long span of years; she has not slid into self-repetition, academic sterility, or slavery to current fashions. This show is the latest in her long series of exhibitions demonstrating the special artistic focus that has always set her work apart.
