This exhibition celebrates artists who are inspired by Thoreau and his interest in conservation and the transcendental movement.  Photographers and works have been chosen because of a sensitivity and kinship to these ideals.  It's a timely endeavor in light of our states efforts in conservation and stewardship (of the Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument.) and we couldn’t be more proud of highlighting the thoughtful photographic artists of Maine.  

Artists included; Elizabeth Greenberg, Ethan Hayes-Chute, Gail Skudera, Gary Green, Johanna Moore, S.B. Walker, Sarah Szwajkos, Dan Mills, Keliy Anderson-Staley and D.M. Witman
