PhoPa Gallery presents... 

Mark Marchesi

A Modern Tale of Acadia


November 16 - January 14
Reception & Book Launch | Thursday, December 8, 5-7pm
Artist Talk | Sunday, January 8, 3pm 

Evangeline: A Modern Tale of Acadia features photographs by Mark Marchesi.  This project was inspired by HW Longfellow’s epic poem Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie. First published in 1847, the piece tells a tragic story about the expulsion of early French settlers in the mid 1700's from the territory that later became Nova Scotia. Mark took an interest in the poem and began photographing the Annapolis Valley in 2012. Today, much of the rural Western Shore is again declining in population. The abandoned properties, vacant ports and primordial landscapes in his photos represent his own modern tale of Acadia. 

PhoPa Gallery is Maine Media's Portland Gallery focused on showcasing photography and works on paper by Maine-based artists.  See for more information.
