After 7 years as a private gallery in Portland, VoxPhotographs is hosting a grand opening event and reception at its new retail gallery space in Portland on September 18, 4-7 with URBAN – featuring 60 photo-based images by 15 Maine artists.
“The move to 334 Forest Avenue and The Portland Design Center (formerly Pier One) and sharing retail space with Jan Robinson’s EcoHome Studio/Showroom is timely,” Heather Frederick, founder and gallery director says.”With over 50 linear feet of wall space, as well as a library of portfolios showcasing the work of all 34 Maine artists whose work the gallery represents, we are expanding our reach to the consumer.” While Maine’s design community continues to define the customer base of the gallery, Frederick believes the new public space will also encourage individual collectors to explore what is available in a welcoming environment.
URBAN is not a documentary photography exhibit, Frederick clarifies. “URBAN will demonstrate the visions of Maine’s fine art photographers in the age of digital darkroom, and the breadth of styles, presentation and subject matter will be surprising, I can assure you.”
URBAN is on view through November 4. Call 207-323-1214, or explore www.voxphotographs.com for more information.
