Attention Young Artists!
As part of Maine Photo Project (a statewide collaboration in 2015, mainephotoproject.org) the Maine Media Gallery will host a juried show highlighting emerging photographic talent. The exhibition will feature selected work by students (ages 14-18) who have participated in the Young Artist Program at Maine Media Workshops + College. The program offers students the opportunity to delve into photography through an intensive, creative experience, learning from world-renowned photographers and developing their own artistic voices.
