Brother and Sister Exhibition – Frances and David Hodsdon

The Kennebec Valley Art Association is pleased to present The Brother and Sister Exhibition, featuring photographs by David Hodsdon &  prints by Frances Hodsdon, at the lobby gallery at 45 Memorial Circle in Augusta. On view from April 15 through June 14, 2013,  the installation is open 9am-9pm daily, can be viewed from outside the building, and is lit at night. David and Frances Hodsdon are brother and sister from Jefferson, Maine, where they live on and near Clary Lake.

Frances Hodsdon has been a printmaker, teacher for many years.  Currently she holds classes at Midcoast Printmakers at Round Top Farm in Damariscotta.  Recently she was part of the UNE Art Gallery Exhibition HOMAGE, the second part of Maine Women Pioneers III.  Art school and college taught me to do my own printing in all the different printmaking media: screen, relief, lithography, and etching.  These techniques are second nature to me.  They give me the freedom to experiment with imagery – imagery primarily from my immediate surroundings which builds on ideas and emotions to make connections with nature, self-expression, absurdities and beauty.  This exhibition has a few examples of original prints in different media.

David Hodsdon retired from working 17 years as an Electrical Engineer for MIT Lincoln Laboratory in 1989 to Jefferson to pursue a more leisurely pace and a long time interest in photography.  His interests include photographing all of Maine, nature, and creating travelogue slide shows.  He creates all his work using a digital camera, computer, and an inkjet printer to produce archival photographs.  The photographs are printed on Red River 60lb Polar Matte paper using Epson Ultrachrome pigment inks.  The unique picture frames are hand-crafted from rough birch wood in his woodworking shop.  This exhibition includes a small selection of photographs taken in Maine over several years.

  1. One thing I’d really like to say is the fact before purchasing more laptop or computer memory, consider the machine into which it could be installed. In case the machine is definitely running Windows XP, for instance, a memory ceiling is 3.25GB. Using in excess of this would purely constitute any waste. Make certain that one’s motherboard can handle your upgrade volume, as well. Good blog post.

  2. Thanks for the unique tips discussed on this blog. I have noticed that many insurers offer shoppers generous savings if they choose to insure multiple cars with them. A significant volume of households have several cars these days, especially those with old teenage kids still living at home, as well as savings on policies may soon begin. So it is a good idea to look for a great deal.

  3. The subsequent time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my choice to learn, but I really thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you can repair should you werent too busy looking for attention.

  4. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  5. I am so happy to read this. This is the kind of manual that needs to be given and not the accidental misinformation that’s at the other blogs. Appreciate your sharing this best doc.

  6. There are some attention-grabbing deadlines in this article but I don抰 know if I see all of them middle to heart. There is some validity however I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we would like extra! Added to FeedBurner as well
