Exhibition Calendar

We live in an area infused with artis­tic vital­ity. Thank you to over 40 artists who applied for Mid­Coast exhi­bi­tions. Excit­ing, var­ied, beau­ti­ful and chal­leng­ing are adjec­tives that linger after see­ing the applicant’s images.

Some artists will be first-time MidCoast exhibitors and some are recognized professionals showing new works.

craig miller

Craig Miller of Coal Valley, Illinois, sees his photography straddling two modes: street photography (taken while out and about, somewhat akin to photo journalism) and fine art photography (abstracted and constructed imagery). He relates “I’ve been carrying a camera around with me for almost 31 years, photographing everything from landscapes to political demonstrations, and natural disasters to rusty old cars….What began as a hobby eventually became a passion.”

Now he pushes his images to fine art status. 


Below, two works by Craig Miller: Clowning in Dublin and On the Fence

parade figures by jeanne o'melia


paintings by teresa mesich

In this case, pictures are worth a thousand words. You know its going to be fun to see the exhibition that pairs up paintings by Teresa Mesich and parade figures by Jeanne O’Melia. Every summer, O’Melia creates a new mixed media figure to participate in a parade near her Cook, Minnesota summer home.

Join us for the closing reception January 10, 6 to 9 p.m.
