Please find below a list of photography exhibits in the state of Maine for August 2019. For Boston and greater New England, I recommend the What Will You Remember blog for exhibit lists and reviews. If you have an exhibit you’d like me to publicize please let me know as well.
Kingman Gallery in Deer Isle continues Lynn Karlin’s “Making the Ordinary Extraordinary” through August 4th, but switches to the next exhibition of my own work starting August 6th (if you’ll excuse the self-promotion!). My exhibit, entitled “Iceland”, extends until September 8th. There is an opening reception on Sunday, August 11th, from 2-5 pm, and I hope to see you there!
The Thos. Moser Gallery in Freeport (of handmade furniture fame) is exhibiting the work of a group of photographers in an exhibition that extends until November 3rd. Besides myself, photographers also include Gifford Ewing, Nina Fuller, Lynn Karlin, Olga Merrill, Sarah Szwajkos, Joyce Tenneson, David Wade, Amy Wilton, Mary Woodman, and Jane Yudelman.
The very popular Melt Down exhibition that recently ended at the CMCA in Rockland heads south down to Portland very soon. Opening this Friday, August 2nd, from 6-8 pm at the Lewis Gallery (at the Portland Public Library), I highly recommend this exhibit of climate change-related work by ten Maine photographers (including myself). The exhibition will be on view through September 21st.
The Maine Museum of Photographic Arts is exhibiting the work and collection of Barbara Morris Goodbody through October 30th at the USM Glickman Library. It looks to be a wonderful show and I look forward to checking it out soon.
Cove Street Arts, a new space from the new owners of Greenhut Galleries, has opened at 71 Cove Street in Portland. They have a website now and the current exhibitions look good, particularly the one with the work of Ian Trask that goes until September 13th — I can’t wait to seeing this new space.
The Bowdoin College Museum of Art has one exhibition in August with photography, entitled “Art Purposes: Object Lessons for the Liberal Arts”. The exhibition extends until November 10th, 2019.
The Colby Museum of Art has what looks to be a very interesting exhibit entitled “Theaster Gates: Facsimile Cabinet of Women Origin Stories” and extending though September 8th.
