Works by Mullen and Kolster Exhibited at Saco Museum

Story posted October 08, 2002

Two members of Bowdoin's art department faculty are currently exhibiting work at The Saco Museum, 371 Main Street, Saco.

"Depicting the Maine Coast: James Mullen and Michael Kolster" will be on exhibit through November 7. The exhibit includes photography by Assistant Professor Michael Kolster, and paintings by Assistant Professor James Mullen.

Collectively their images explore how landscape has come to define and reveal the coastal Maine community. The story of the local coast is told differently through the voices of the two artists and as the result of their individual processes: painting and photography.

Mullen and Kolster will talk about their work and give a walking tour through the exhibit at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, October 17. (Admission to the museum is free on Thursday evenings.)

Mullen has exhibited his work widely throughout the United States. He was recently featured in the Saco Museum's group exhibition "Still Lives: A Tradition Retold." His work can be found in the collections of the University of Maine at Presque Isle, The Savannah College of Art and Design, and the Wichita Center for the Arts.

Kolster has exhibited his photography throughout Maine and the United States. Recently his work has been on display at the Center for Contemporary Art in Rockport, the Icon Gallery in Brunswick, and the Z Space in Paris, France.

Admission to the museum is $4 for adults, $3 for seniors, and $2 for students Monday through Friday, noon to 4 p.m. Admission is free to all Thursdays from 4-8 p.m. The Dyer Library Association, a non-profit organization, administers the Dyer Library and Saco Museum.
