Artists’ Groups

The Harlow hosts several different ongoing programs for artists and art-lovers. Artists of all experience levels and backgrounds are welcome to join any of these groups and events. 

Tuesday Morning Artist’s Group: 
Tuesdays, 9am-noon.
All artists are welcome to come work in fellowship with this supportive group, which has been meeting regularly for nearly a decade. The artists bring painting, drawing or other art projects to work on, and then spends the last hour critiquing each other’s work. Donations welcome.

Life Drawing:
Sundays 7-9 pm.
Arrive before 7 pm, allowing yourself time to set up; the doors are locked at 7 pm sharp. There is a $8 model fee.

MTFP (Maine Traditional Film Group): 
Every 4th Wednesday, 6:30pm. 
Begun in 2009, Maine Traditional Film Photographers is a group joined together through mutual interest in recording images using black and white negatives, color film and slides. The group is open to all film photographers. Several members use large format (view) cameras; others prefer medium format or 35 mm photography. We meet the third Thursday of each month at the Harlow to share technical and artistic skills. We also organize occasional field trips to photography exhibits  including shows at Colby, Bates, Bowdoin College and the Portland Museum of Art. We offer spring and summer photo shoots to coastal and inland Maine sites, and show our film-based work in shows at Augusta, Hallowell and other locations.  Speakers at our meetings have included documentary photographers and glass plate practitioners, among others. We are not a club and do not offer contests or jurying. Contact person: Cindy Langewisch
