In celebration of Maine’s upcoming bicentennial, more than 50 works that share a strong connection to — and/or vision of — the state will be featured this fall. In a wide range of media, formats and subject matter, the artworks by 34 artists represent a small but resonant sample of Maine’s rich visual and cultural diversity.
The exhibition, organized by the University of Maine Department of Art and the Maine Studies Program, is held in conjunction with the lecture series, “Framing Maine: Conversations with Storytellers and Imagemakers from the Pine Tree State,” organized by the Maine Studies Program.
Artists in the exhibition are: Jane Banquer, Siri Beckman, Jeffrey Becton, Kevin Beers, Louise Bourne, Alan Bray, Elizabeth Busch, Barry Dana, Claud Dennis, Marsha Donahue, Evelyn Dunphy, Sarah Faragher, Stephanie Francis, Gabriel Frye, Deborah Heyden, Nina Jerome, MaJo Keleshian, Rosemary Levin, Michael Lewis, James Linehan, Larinda Meade, Daniel Minter, Johanna Moore, Ed Nadeau, Stan Neptune, Heath Paley, Molly Neptune Parker, Mark Picard, Robert Pollien, Barbara Putnam, Sarah Sockbeson, Antonia Small, Susan Smith and John Whalley.
The exhibitions are free and open to the public. Lord Hall Gallery is open from 9 a.m.–4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and is wheelchair accessible.
