Harlow Gallery turns Fifty


The Harlow Gallery in Hallowell is owned and operated by the Kennebec Valley Art Association and first opened its doors almost fifty years ago, on Sunday, November 17, 1963. Five decades in business is a remarkable milestone for any business, but particularly for a non-profit arts organization.  In celebration the gallery is planning a special Golden Anniversary Member’s Show for November 2013, and hopes to showcase some artwork created by past members of the Kennebec Valley Art Association.  The general public is being invited to submit art from their personal art collections, created by KVAA members from years past. There is room for a limited number of works to be showcased alongside work by current members of the organization.  The art must be available to be loaned to the gallery for the duration of the exhibition, from November 1-23, 2013.  The Harlow Gallery’s Exhibition Committee will select the work to be exhibited from submissions received by October 15. Those who own artwork that they would be willing to loan to the Harlow Gallery in November should email a jpg image of the art with the artist’s name and a short description, size and general condition to: kvaa@harlowgallery.org
