Dark and light.
The space between.
The moment of change.
The necessity of one to identify the other.
Hope.
Fading.
Clearcutting.
Nature. 

Invited artists will show work addressing these and other implications of light and/or dark. All are Maine artists with established careers and reputations for fine craftsmanship and artistic excellence.

Dan Kany of the Portland Press Herald call this "the most visually satisfy show of 2019."  To read the review click here.
