Considering the location and time for this reception in Fryeburg, this show was very well attended. These new galleries (more Museum like) on the Fryeburg Academy Campus are connected to their performing arts center. The galleries were funded by the artist Stephen Pace and his wife Palmina.... our 3 person show and the new spaces are certainly well worth the drive (about 1 hour from Portland). This show will be up until February 12, 2010 and the gallery hours are 9am - 1pm M-F. ***CATALOG AVAILABLE for $15 at the box office or through John Knight , Richard Keen or Elizabeth Moss Gallery.***
