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 voice. This show was juried by photographer Allison V. Smith who began her study of photography in one of MMW+C’s earliest Young Artist programs. Smith studied journalism at SMU and worked as a photojournalist for seven newspapers over 15 years. She now works as a fine art photographer and takes on freelance work for editorial clients, including Texas Monthly, The New York Times, Al Jazeera America and Johnson&Johnson. Allison’s work is in the permanent collection at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Dallas Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Nasher Sculpture Center and the Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta. She is represented by the Barry Whistler Gallery in Dallas and Hiram Butler Gallery in Houston.
Featured Artists: Gus Baganz, Jenna Beagle, Lizzie Bee, Susanna Benn, Celia Boltansky, Sam Brill Weil, Erin Burnett, Anna Callahan, Louis Inghilterra, Katey Ladika, Elia Levitin, Kelcey Logan, Sarah McIntosh, Daisy Moffat, Kiana Senke, Adriel Soloway, James Sunne, Katie Tzivanis
