New Work in Cove Street Exhibit
From September 2023 through most of November 2023 in Cove Street Arts in Portland runs the exhibit Out and About II. It is an exhibit of Maine photographs and I am happy to have eight photographs in the show. When we have exhibits of “Maine” photographs we generally see work describing Maine the way is is generally expected, showing off Maine’s natural beauty. I have tried to show a bit of the real Maine, some of it not so pretty but very much the way Maine really is. One photograph of a bar scene in Biddeford , loaded with people, at one pm on a weekday. A photograph of a palm reader at the Old Orchard pier, reluctantly having her photograph taken, and one of a farmhouse in Freeport, in the summer, still decorated with Chistmas lighting while a pittbul is barking at me from the second floor window. Maine it is, rather than Maine it should be. This was a well curated show (By Bruce Brown) and I am happy to have been a part of it.
