The Lord Hall exhibition “Framing Maine: Artists’ Perspectives on Place” will open with a gallery reception. During the reception, a panel of artists will speak in Lord Hall, Room 100 about their art and experiences, with a focus on the importance of art in Maine’s history and emerging cultural identity, as well as how the state has influenced the images and forms these artists create.
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 reception is free and open to the public.
