Most importantly this class will teach participants how to print at home without a press. These easily printed blocks make great postcards, propaganda posters, subversive illustrations and of course, fine art prints. Scottminzy.com

CSA 2012: Artist Kate Emily Barnes was paired with Grassland Organic Farm in Skowhegan

HALLOWELL, ME – In 2012 the Harlow Gallery, located at 160 Water Street in Hallowell, organized the first Community Supporting Arts (CSA) project to connect Maine’s artist and farming communities, two vibrant and idealistic groups that are key to our state’s unique sense of place. The CSA project was a huge success and the Harlow Gallery is thrilled to be bringing it back in 2017.

For more information about CSA 2012 visit http://harlowgallery.org/csa-community-supporting-arts-overview/

The Harlow Gallery is seeking 10 Maine artists to participate in CSA II  to be paired with 10 Maine farms. Each artist will seek inspiration in his or her counterpart’s life, work, landscape, ideals and challenges over the course of the 2017 growing season and create work based on their experiences and observations.  Partnering farmers will be those operating CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture) farms. A CSA farm offers shares at the beginning of the growing season and then provides fresh, seasonal food on a regular basis to each shareholding household throughout the growing season. Community Supported Agriculture is a grassroots response to the growing social and environmental problems of our modern industrial food system.

Any Ideas?

March 12, 2016

Put your good ideas on the table

Screen Shot 2016-03-11 at 9.06.38 PMCall for Exhibition Proposals for Harlow Gallery – Due April 1, 2016

Deadline to Submit: April 1, 2016 at 11PM.
Contact: Allison McKeen, PR and Documentation, 207-622-2813, kvaa@harlowgallery.org

Exhibitions at the Harlow Gallery are chosen from among proposals submitted by the Maine arts community. We welcome your ideas for upcoming shows, and it couldn’t be simpler to submit a proposal with our simple paperless proposal process via email. Our exhibition committee meets twice annually to review submissions, so while we accept proposals anytime, please keep the April 1st and October 1st deadlines in mind if you’d like your proposal to be reviewed in a timely manner.

Maine artists or artists with a strong Maine connection are our primary focus. Please note we do not have a budget for travel or art shipping costs, and artists “from away” would need to take full responsibility for transporting their work to and from Maine.

Proposed exhibitions may be solo, group or themed-open, invitational or juried. We generally limit solo shows to one per year, therefore submissions for small group shows are encouraged, or themed shows open to submissions from other artists.

Our mission is to connect and celebrate art, artists and community.
