On view from April 15 through June 14, the installation is open 9 a.m.-9 p.m. daily, can be viewed from outside the building, and is lit at night. David and Frances Hodsdon are brother and sister from Jefferson, Maine, where they live on and near Clary Lake.

Frances Hodsdon has been a printmaker and teacher for many years. Recently she was part of the University of New England Art Gallery exhibition HOMAGE, the second part of Maine Women Pioneers III. She said, “Art school and college taught me to do my own printing in all the different printmaking media: screen, relief, lithography, and etching. These techniques are second nature to me. They give me the freedom to experiment with imagery – imagery primarily from my immediate surroundings which builds on ideas and emotions to make connections with nature, self-expression, absurdities and beauty.” This exhibition has a few examples of original prints in different media.

David Hodsdon retired from working 17 years as an electrical engineer for MIT Lincoln Laboratory in 1989 to Jefferson to pursue a more leisurely pace and a long-time interest in photography. His interests include photographing all of Maine, nature and creating travelogue slide shows. He creates all his work using a digital camera, computer, and an inkjet printer to produce archival photographs. The photographs are printed on Red River 60lb Polar Matte paper using Epson Ultrachrome pigment inks. The unique picture frames are handcrafted from rough birch wood in his woodworking shop. This exhibition includes a small selection of photographs taken in Maine over several years.
