Exhibit Explores Maine's Open Spaces

Colby student curators Nora Hill and Francesca Soriano select work for the exhibition.

The L.C. Bates Museum is proud to announce its new exhibition, Open Spaces: Reimagining Pastoral Maine. The exhibit will be on view from May 6 to October 15, 2016.

The show, the result of a collaborative effort between the L.C. Bates Museum staff and two Colby College students, Francesca Soriano and Nora Hill, under the supervision of Professor Véronique Plesch, aims to explore the natural beauty of Maine's fields and the flora and fauna that fill them. Defining fields as an expansive space, the exhibition seeks to combine scientific and artistic methods of looking at fields. Works in a variety of mediums from contemporary Maine artists will be featured. The exhibition gives visitors a broad perspective of how artists view and portray nature.

Throughout the summer there will be various workshops with featured artists and visitors of all ages are encouraged to attend. The L.C. Bates Museum is located on Route 201 on the Good Will-Hinckley campus in Hinckley, Maine. Vistors are welcome to explore Open Spaces: Reimagining Pastoral Maine as well as any objects on display from the museum's rich permanent collection.
