Search is on for Katahdin Artists
from the sunjournal: HALLOWELL — The Harlow Gallery invites Maine artists to submit work to the upcoming exhibition “Inspired by Katahdin” to be presented in partnership with brothers David and 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 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.
This November, the Harlow Gallery will exhibit a selection of works by artists featured in the book, and are inviting submissions from Maine artists inspired by the majestic Maine mountain. Submissions are being accepted via email through Oct. 1, 2014 and will be reviewed by a curatorial committee.
The exhibition will be on view at the Harlow Gallery at 160 Water Street from Nov. 7-29. The public reception will be from 5-8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 7, and will feature a book signing with the author and editor.
