Rockport, ME: Maine Media Gallery is proud to present the 2014 Scholarship Fundraiser Exhibition: A Maine Media Legacy. 100% of the proceeds from print sales will go directly to the scholarship fund.  A Maine Media Legacy will be on display in the Maine Media Gallery from July 8 – August 2 with an opening reception to be held on Saturday, July 12 from 4-5:30pm.

Last year, Maine Media Gallery held Focus on Faculty, an exhibition honoring Maine Media’s 40th anniversary. The show consisted of prints that were generously donated by Maine Media faculty members. This year, the exhibition will feature not only work of Maine Media’s extraordinarily talented faculty, but also of its accomplished alumni. Featured artists include faculty Craig Stevens, Andrea Modica, and Jim Nickelson; and alumni Jon Edwards, Ni Rong, and Sujata Khanna, as well as many others that have graciously donated work for the Scholarship Fund.

The Scholarship Fund is an essential resource for Maine Media students, lessening the financial burden and allowing a stellar education in photography, filmmaking, design and book arts from our exception instructors. This fund makes it possible for students around the world to attend the workshops, long term and college programs, and become a part of our growing community of alumni and friends.
