Call for artists: Inspired by Katahdin


“Spring Comes to Katahdin” by Judy Taylor, Collection of Colorado Mesa University.

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 NNovember 7-29, 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.

This November, the Harlow Gallery will exhibit a selection of works by artists featured in Art of Katahdin, and are inviting submissions from Maine artists inspired by the majestic Maine mountain. Submissions are being accepted via email through October 1, 2014 and will be reviewed by a curatorial committee including Art of Katahdin author and artist David Little, author and editor Carl Little, with staff from the Harlow Gallery. The exhibition will be on view at the Harlow Gallery at 160 Water Street in Hallowell, Maine November 7-29, 2014. The public reception on Friday, November 7, 5-8pm will feature a book signing with David & Carl Little.

Deadline for email submissions is 11pm on October 1, 2014.
