The Kennebec Valley Art Association is pleased to present 30 Years of Marriage & Art, featuring photographs by Lloyd Ferriss plus oil and pastel works by Jane Frost, at the lobby gallery at 45 Memorial Circle in Augusta. The show is on view July 1 through August 15, 2014. The installation is open 9am-9pm daily. It may be viewed from outside the building, and is lighted at night. Jane Frost and Lloyd Ferriss live in Richmond, Maine, where the Kennebec River and countryside inspire much of their work.

Jane Frost grew up in Caribou, Maine. She received a BA in English Literature from Wheaton College, and went on to receive a BA in graphic arts from the Rhode Island School of Design. Jane was employed by the Massachusetts Audubon Society, where she worked in public relations and design. Returning to Maine, she illustrated books for the Maine Department of Conservation and continued public relations work. For 25 years Jane taught art at Marcia Buker Elementary School in Richmond.

Lloyd Ferriss is a native of Huntington, New York, who earned a BA in English Literature from the University of New Hampshire. For 30 years he wrote and photographed for the MaineSunday Telegram. Lloyd prefers traditional black & white photography to digital capture of images, though he does both. He is a member of Hallowell-based Maine Traditional Film Photographers
