Call for Artists

April 24, 2014

Inspired by Katahdin at the Harlow Gallery in November

Hallowell, Maine — The Harlow Gallery invites Maine artists to submit work to the upcoming exhibition Inspired by Katahdin to be presented in partnership with brothers David & Carl Little in November 2014.

Artist and author David Little has long been inspired by Maine’s tallest mountain, so much so that he wrote a book,  Art of Katahdin: The Mountain, the Range, the Region published by Down East Books in 2013. The book follows a historic timeline using art inspired by the majestic mountain, as well as a collection of Katahdin literature, photography, graphics, maps and more, and was edited by Carl Little.

  2. Thanks for this information Nancy! I will encourage to take advantage of this opportunity for students, directly and indirectly. I couldn’t attend yesterday however, I understand there was a good crowd attending. The information that is being collected is going to help a great deal and has the potential to make a huge difference in arts education and beyond. Thanks Nancy ~ Argy
