November 17, 2018 marked the 30th Anniversary of the Sister City Relationship between the Greater Portland Region, Maine and Archangel, Russia. This photographic cultural exchange between the Portland Camera Club of Maine and the Spolokhi Photo Club of Archangel, Russia, will provide the residents of Maine and Archangel a juried show of outstanding photographs from each country. We hope you will find this Exhibit valuable to your community and worthy of your support.
An Opening Reception will be held March 8 at 6:00 P.M. to celebrate and learn more about the Bridges Exchange and to celebrate International Women’s Day and the 2019 #BalanceforBetter campaign. The #BalanceforBetter campaign theme provides a unified direction to guide and galvanize continuous collective action, with #BalanceforBetter activity reinforced and amplified all year. https://www.internationalwomensday.com/Theme “Better the balance, better the world”
The Art of Photography, or painting with Light, is a Universal Language, like Music. The two clubs would like you to see their communities in a positive Light, as the title of the exhibition states: “Bridges of Friendship”.
You may view this exhibit during the hours the library is open.
