On Friday "10 Years of Art at SMCC" opened at the Lewis Gallery at the Portland Public Library in downtown Portland, Maine. The show celebrated a decade of the art program at Southern Maine Community College, where I have been a professor in the studio art program since 2007, and served as Chair of the program from 2008 to 2014. The press release has all the details about the college and the program, but for me this was a night to reflect on the remarkable progress of this program and all of the students, faculty, and staff that have made it the amazing program it is -- one that has carved out a unique place in art and education in the state of Maine. The show is up through the end of September -- please check it out if you can!
