The result is an exhibition showcasing the diverse and innovative talent of today’s young artists.

Gary Briechle was born in Morristown NJ in 1955. He moved to coastal Maine in 2001. His work has been in several issues of the New York Times Magazine and he was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2015. With a few exceptions he draws and photographs daily.

Of photography he has said, "photography has the power to show the broken pieces, made whole again, for a moment."
