In the month of September, the Casco Bay Wood Sculptors will be presenting Global Impact, an exhibition at The Gallery at Harmon’s and Barton’s, Congress Street, Portland. The show encourages Maine people to look for solutions to global warming. There will be three presentations by environmental specialists on the impacts of climate change with a particular focus on Maine throughout the month-long exhibit.

Casco Bay Wood Sculptors are putting out a call for entries to inspire young Mainers to think about and respond to global climate change. Students under the age of 19 may submit art done in any medium that expresses their solutions. Two $500 gifts will be given to the leading artists that express relevance, uniqueness, and effective solutions. Their works will be included in the exhibit. Photos of submissions placing 3rd through 12th will be displayed on a big screen in the gallery window visible both from Congress Street and from within the gallery.

The submissions may be, but not limited to, images, sculptures, text, poems, posters, dioramas – anything designed to educate, inspire, and/or unite people of Maine around a goal of solving global climate change. Let your ideas flow.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Aug 1st, for a Sept 6th opening, as part of the First Friday Art Walk in Portland.

Contact Laurie Sproul at 207-725-5389 or at by July 15th to register.
