Hannah Day (b.1997) is a multi-disciplinary artist who ignites discourse surrounding the climate crisis in the Gulf of Maine through abstract painting and site-specific installation. Drawing inspiration from her familial history on the islands of Casco Bay, Hannah infuses her work with the essence of the landscape. She uses materials such as ocean water, soil, lichen, and rocks like serpentinite and shale. Her studio practice highlights the beauty and fragility of the environment and aims to deepen viewers' understanding of our changing world. Day studied environmental philosophy and studio art at San Francisco Art Institute from 2015 to 2017 before obtaining her Bachelor of Fine Art in Painting from Maine College of Art & Design in 2020. Currently, Day sustains her studio practice and is one of five directors of gallery space 82Parris in Portland, Maine.
