A public reception at Slates from 5-8 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 12, will coincide with the opening of a related exhibition celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Kennebec Land Trust across the street at the Harlow Gallery. Welcome comments from Deb Fahy, executive director of the Harlow Gallery and Brian Kent, KLT president, are scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at the Harlow Gallery. The reception is free and open to the public, refreshments will be served, and there will be a cash bar.

Howard Hill consists of 164 wooded acres that serve as the scenic forested backdrop for Maine’s State Capitol. This ambitious project is part of KLT’s 25th Anniversary “Conservation Across Generations” campaign, and 50 percent of art sales from the show will benefit the Howard Hill project, with some artists donating 100 percent of sales to the project.

An open call earlier this year invited Maine artists to create art depicting or inspired by the Howard Hill property environs, history and views from or including the hill. The work to be included in this benefit exhibition was selected by a group of jurors including Norm Rodrigue and Jane Davis from the Kennebec Land Trust, and Deb Fahy, Allison McKeen and Elena Kirillova from the Harlow Gallery.
