Mike Dumont always wanted to open a gallery of many photographers and genres of work. Maine photographers Kevin White, Herman Meisner and Sandy Dolan fill the space in addition to Dumont's works. Kevin White’s striking, larger-than-life canvas images of are realistic enough to make one pause. Herman Meisner’s black and white emulsion prints bring the time tested, traditional photo processes back with a twist; his images are printed on clamshells or glass, in an effect resembling scrimshaw. Sandy Dolan’s award winning marine images make one long for a misty morning on the water. Her work has garnered awards from The Maine Press Association, and is often found in Cruising World and Soundings. The whimsical 3D sculptures of Greg Pinto are also here. Pinto’s adventurous sculptures reflect his fascination for creating with found objects. He creates schools of bizarre fish from thumbtacks, discarded silver plate, and elegant gold leaf. Many of his clever sculptures light up, like the angler fish with the bait to attract prey. The fun is two-way in Pinto’s work; a glance at the fork-tine teeth and thumbtack scales starts the mental wheels to piece out the rest of the materials used in the sculpture. In addition Keag River Gallery also offers custom photo editing, printing and ARTiPLAQ mounting services. Dumont’s vision also includes a plan to offer workshops, host events on the substantial deck and grounds. Keag River Gallery is open Thursdays through Sundays from 11 am – 5 pm. Open June through October. « less
