MICHAEL MESKIS: STATE OF MAINE IN INFARED
Venue/Location: Bangor Public Library – 145 Harlow Street, Bangor
Time: 10:00AM to 5:00PM
About: I am a former Chicago native (professional commercial photographer) making Maine my home for the past decade. Most of my work is with infrared photography and in the fall I usually switch to color. I like to think most of my work is from the perspective of trees and nature. I combine multiple subjects and create a new perspective on the way nature lives together in harmony.

OCTOBER 1 THROUGH OCTOBER 31
JENN MORRIS: SHOOK: CLARITY AND CHAOS IN COLOR
Venue/Location: Bangor Public Library – 145 Harlow Street, Bangor
Time: 10:00AM to 5:00PM
About: Increasingly, I find that the only way to organize the chaos in the world, as well as in my head, is to put layer upon layer of color onto canvas. The combinations I create in order to process the chaos do not always make sense, and some turn out to be downright ugly, but eventually an order forms on the canvas. These layers blend into a whole that expresses a feeling about a distinct moment in time. In this way, a moment, however disorderly, becomes structured, organized, and permanent in my work.

OCTOBER 1 THROUGH OCTOBER 31
KAY CARTER: BARN-INTERIOR SPACES
Venue/Location: Bangor Public Library – 145 Harlow Street, Bangor
Time: 10:00AM to 5:00PM
About: Maine has a plethora of large, grand old barns.  Some continue in their original use, some have been repurposed from their origins, and some languish/deteriorate in our changing economy.  In my artwork, I have been interested in exploring barn interiors, their spaces of light and darkness, their structures and patterns, the workmanship which brought them into being, and the tools used. This is a personal and community metaphor.  The paintings in the series pay homage to our state’s agrarian history.  They also pay homage to food, a fundamental of life, to the people who work(ed) the farms, and to the earth which sustains us.
