Merrymeeting Arts Center invites you to participate in its 2017 Winter exhibition, “Out of Darkness, Light,” running from 4 February to 25 February 2017.

For some artists, “Out of Darkness, Light” suggests images of bonfires, sunrises, the flash of color against snow. For others, “Out of Darkness, Light” raises other possibilities. Where do we find light in a dark season? What signs of rebirth and spring are available to us? Where do we look for energy and growth in our own community?

Any artistic medium is welcome including fiber arts, mixed media, clay, painting, photography, etc. Artists with a connection to Merrymeeting Bay are especially encouraged to participate. To participate, contact us by phone (207 320-5002) or through our website by January 23; work must be submitted by January 30 2017.

The opening reception for “Out of Darkness, Light” will be on 4 February, 5-8 pm., the first event of Bowdoinham’s Annual “Ice and Smelt Festival” scheduled for the weekend of 4-5 February 2017.

Merrymeeting Arts Center, 9 Main Street, Bowdoinham, is funded by the Town of Bowdoinham and through donations and grants. For more information, visit our website at
