The public is invited to the Harlow Gallery at 160 Water Street in downtown Hallowell for a FREE screening of two films from the Maine Masters series on Thursday, October 27 at 7:00 pm. We’ll be watching profiles of Maine artists Dahlov Ipcar and Olive Pierce. Movie fans are welcome to stay after the screening for a discussion of the film led by members of the Kennebec Valley Art Association. If you have comfy folding chairs bring them along, because seating at the Harlow is limited to metal folding chairs. Movie Nights at the Harlow are free and open to the public.
The MAINE MASTERS PROJECT is an award-winning video series sponsored by the Union of Maine Visual Artists, a not-for-profit educational organization established in 1975 with three chapters meeting monthly. The Maine Masters Project was begun in 1999 and has created an ongoing series of profiles of some of Maine’s most distinguished and often less recognized visual artists who articulate the importance of art making. There are currently nine completed DVDs (see Artist DVDs) with five more in production. A consistent theme throughout the videos is that art making enhances our culture by encouraging people to think and feel more deeply.
