This coming Friday I’ll be presenting at Camden’s Pecha Kucha event under the stars – or at least the evening sky. The event will be at the Camden Amphitheater (right next to the library) on Friday, August 24th and features 8 presenters, including fellow Midcoast photographer Peter Ralston. The gates, such as they are, open at 7 pm and the first presentation (that would be me) will be right at sunset. There will also be live music starting at 7ish until the presentations start.
My presentation is going to be about my Adventures in Celestial Mechanics series – the one with the full moon rising over the Maine landscape – you can see this body of work on my website if you would like a sneak preview.
For those of you who have never heard of Pecha Kucha, it is a fun and lively event where each speaker (who has some connection to the arts and/or creativity) gives a fast-paced presentation of 20 slides – with only 20 seconds per slide. Each presentation moves quickly and lasts less than 7 minutes. The poster for the event is below for more details…Hope to see everyone there!
In an another event likely to be of interest to many readers, there is a very intriguing presentation up in Belfast at the Hutchinson Center at 6:30 pm on August 27th. The Belfast Creative Coalition is bringing in noted author Jackie Battenfield to speak about making a life and career as an artist. It looks like a great opportunity to hear an interesting presentation and also to mingle with many of Midcoast Maine’s creative types.
