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.

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
