Bar Harbor, ME — Earlier this year the Maine Arts Commission, as part of its Art in the Capitol program at the Maine State House, showcased MDI resident Howie Motenko‘s photography exhibit “Painting Islands: Uniting Community with Art.”
If you missed it, be of good cheer. “Painting Islands: Uniting Community with Art” is on display at Maine Seacoast Mission’s Colket Center in Bar Harbor July 1 through August 31.
Mission Director of Island Outeach Douglas Corman reminds us the Island Outreach program “is taking the [‘Painting Islands”] photographs around to the fifteen participating islands.” We will let you know the times and places of Howie Motenko’s photo exhibits on the islands as we get them.
Finally, the Mission is celebrating Howie Motenko’s photography exhibition with an Artist’s Opening Reception, at the Colket Center, on Thursday, July 6, 2017 from 5-7 pm.
