Call For Artists: Inspired By Katahdin

Harlow Gallery

“Spring Comes to Katahdin” by Judy Taylor

The Harlow Gallery invites Maine artists to submit work to the upcoming exhibition “Inspired by Katahdin” to be presented in partnership with brothers David & Carl Little in November 2014.

Artist and author David Little has long been inspired by Maine’s tallest mountain, so much so that he wrote a book, Art of Katahdin: The Mountain, the Range, the Region published by DownEast Books in 2013. The book follows a historic timeline using art inspired by the majestic mountain, as well as a collection of Katahdin literature, photography, graphics, maps and more, and was edited by Carl Little.

Submissions are being accepted via email through October 1, 2014. The exhibition will be on view November 7 – 29, 2014. The public reception on Friday, November 7, 5 – 8 p.m. will feature a book signing with David & Carl Little.

Pastel Painters Of Maine members and the public are invited to attend a panel discussion, “Parameters of Pricing Art – A Panel Discussion,” with gallery owners Keith Oehmig and Beth Newman, and artists Suzanne deLesseps and Peesh Rewak McClanahan. This free meeting will be held Thursday, October 2, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Patten Free Library Community Room in Bath. The focus of the presentation will be on elements artists and gallery owners weigh when pricing fine art.

Subjective and ethical aspects of pricing art will also be explored.
