Art and the Land

Dave Higgins


The Harlow, in partnership with the Kennebec Land Trust (KLT), presents “Art and the Land” – a juried group show celebrating the 30th anniversary of the KLT. Art and the Land is on view October 25-November 30, 2019 at The Harlow, 100 Water Street in Hallowell. The public is invited to attend and meet the artists at an opening reception on Friday, October 25, from 5-7pm. 

Art and the Land culminated from an open call for artworks responding to properties owned by the KLT and features 40 artworks from 25 local artists representing a dynamic range of styles and media. 

The KLT works cooperatively with landowners and communities to conserve the forests, shorelands, fields, and wildlife that define central Maine. KLT protects land permanently, offers opportunities for people to learn about and enjoy the natural world, and works with partners to support sustainable forestry and farming.
