(Wiscasset, ME) For the final show of the season, the Maine Art Gallery in Wiscasset features four fine art photographers, each celebrating Maine through their own point of view and aesthetic. “Our Maine” includes works by Terry Hire, Jim Nickelson, Lisa Mossel Vietze, and Olga Merrill that explore Maine through both abstract and representational imagery, all with a unique take on aspects of our local surroundings.
The show opens with a reception on Saturday, September 25 from 4:00 to 7:00 pm. Jud Caswell, a singer-songwriter in the folk tradition, will provide music. The show runs through October 16.
This show, originally conceived by Lisa Mossel Vietze for the Archipelago Gallery in Rockland, has been reimagined for the Maine Art Gallery with new works and nearly the same roster of artists. Each artist brings a particular point of view and presents us with rich details we often miss in the typical photographic representations of Maine.
Terry Hire, who passed away in early 2020, was a designer and gardener who focused his photography on the abandoned man-made environment.
Olga Merrill‘s seascape images have an almost meditatively slow feel of a mysterious, painted picture.
Lisa Mossell Vietze is drawn to botanicals for their color, vibrations, form, and vitality. She finds beauty in smaller landscapes, like that in a flower.
Jim Nickelson uses photography to grapple with the unknown and our relationship to the Universe. His inquiry is wide ranging, delving into the realm of science and cosmology.
Our Maine is sponsored by Bob Bond of 40 Federal Street Studio. Season Sponsor for the Maine Art Gallery is Sherri Dunbar of Tim Dunham Realty.
