BANGOR — Twenty-five photographers from PVI are exhibiting their photographs for the month of August in the Lecture Hall at Bangor Public Library. PVI, a division of Amicus, provides comprehensive services to individuals with disabilities by offering an array of experiences designed to promote creativity, personal growth, wellness, self-advocacy, life planning and independence.
The theme of the exhibit is “Changing Seasons,” and the exhibit includes the work of photographers from three groups at PVI. Several PVI staff have been pivotal in collaborating with the PVI photographers in planning and developing this unique exhibit.
Artists who contributed to the exhibit are: Harry Pomeroy, Ryan Lahaye, Angella Messer, Kevin Curtis, Arno Labrecque, Andrew Tidd, Brian Robinson, Julianne Doucette, James Lay, Butch Leavitt, Robin Sibley, Mary Ann Ayoob, David Frey, Cindy Taylor, Brenda Ouelette, Dan Turner, Patricia Landry, Rena Dugay, Crystal Michaud, Fred Thibodeau, Karen Colwell, Steve Morris, Scott Brown, Sabra Ravenscraft and Jane Lee.
“Our photographers are so creative in making choices about their subjects,” said Pamela Colson Power, program director. “Their photos are truly a reflection of their creativity, appreciation of nature, and how they perceive beauty in our environment. Our photographers set high expectations, and always come through with a stellar performance. I feel privileged to work with these fine men and women every day.”
Three groups at PVI contributed to the show. Sharon Murphy and Jackie Seamans worked with the Exhibition Photography Group, which recorded seasonal changes. Heather Bryant and Matt Drinkert helped the Wednesday Photography Group create photographs involving their community and environment. Edna Taber and Jamie Jordan’s My Square Yard Group made photographs that focused on the details of nature.
There will be a reception 10 a.m.-noon Friday, Aug. 19, in the Lecture Hall, for the community to meet the PVI photographers. Light refreshments will be served.
