Points of View
June 12 - October 17, 2015
Points of View is an exhibition of contemporary photography featuring new and recent works by Jay Gould, of Baltimore, Maryland; Gary Green, of Waterville, Maine; David Maisel, of Marin, California; and Shoshannah White, of Portland, Maine. Viewing elements of the Maine landscape from different levels of scale – from great distance to close-up, each artist explores a different aspect of the interrelationships between human populations and the natural world.


The View Out His Window (and in his mind’s eye): Photographs by Jeffery Becton
November 6, 2015 – March 26, 2016
Jeffery Becton is a photographer who lives on Deer Isle, a rocky and forested island off the coast of Maine. While Becton makes work about his surroundings, both the extraordinary sweeping views that are such a part of daily life when one lives by the sea and the importance of interior life, are critical to his work. Interior life refers to both the comfort and protection found in the surroundings of one’s home—especially when home is in this remote locale—and also the space for introspection. His recent photographs incorporate all of these.
