What are the opportunities and challenges of sustaining a career as a contemporary artist in Maine? How does Maine's rich artistic history and prevailing sense of regionalism affect future generations of artists who are exploring non-traditional forms of artistic expression? What role does Maine's cultural institutions and commercial galleries play in creating new audiences and collectors of contemporary art?

Join moderator George Kinghorn, Executive Director and Curator of the University of Maine Museum of Art, for this lively panel discussion with Maine-based contemporary artists Lauren Fensterstock, Anna Hepler, and Philip Frey.
