Galerie Dufour in Belfast hosts an artists reception of new works 5:30-8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5. The juxtaposition of the nude with Maine’s diverse coastline is the theme for Galerie Dufour’s autumn annual, Coastal Curves. From the dramatic to the serene, Maine’s seashore beckons photographer Dufour’s artistic eye to create compositions that capture the natural easiness of our relationship with Mother Earth. Simultaneously, Coastal Curves is a collection of stunning visual essays on liberation, vignettes about freedom from the constraints of the social milieu. Exhibition attendees will feast their eyes upon photographs taken at locations including Deer Isle and Stonington, Schoodic Peninsula, Cape Elizabeth, Owls Head, and Sears Island.
