Meg Webster Photography Series

Central Gallery is proud to kick-off 2015 with the photographic works of Meg Webster. Exhibits open on the 1st Saturday of each month, bringing art in all forms from emerging artists, local & away, to downtown Bangor. 

$5 Suggested Donation | Libations provided by Black Bear Microbrew for 21+ art supporters (must have valid ID).

A few words from the artist:
When I happened upon this building in metamorphosis, I was immediately entranced. There was a permanence and gravity to these structural fragments, having endured so much time, yet I was equally struck by the ephemeral nature of the space. I stood in the expansive darkness, 
sheltered within its century old walls. I watched fractured light spill from the windows and illuminate broken floorboards, rubble, and relic. With my camera, I wanted to capture these luminous ephemeral traces. I hope you enjoy the show. Thank you.

Central Gallery is a nonprofit multi-use, contemporary arts venue & incubator, and program of Launchpad. As an organization, we stand strongly behind our belief that our galleries & spaces should be uncensored, all ages and rotate frequently to provide emerging artists with the opportunity to find as many new audiences for their work as possible. #HelpUsHelpArt

Long Pumpkin Stout Coming Soon!


Buddy CookinIn OvenWalter Matt






















Long Pumpkin Stout is coming soon!  This is a collaboration with both Peacemeal Farms and the Bear Brew Pub.  We love to get a chance to work with our local community! The Bear Brew Pub (Orono) Cooked 15 Organic Long Pumpkins from Peacemeal Farms in their wood fired brick oven. They were then used in the mash of the Pumpkin stout by Head Brewer Matt York (back ground) and assistent brewer Walter Beckwith (front). In the Brewing process, a reserved addition of fresh pumpkin pie spices, with the smokey, flavorful, wood roasted long pie pumpkins and caramelized brown sugar in a great 7%, roasty stout recipe will be a great combo of flavors. Look for it's release in a few weeks at the Brewery!
