CARRABASSETT VALLEY — The Carrabassett Valley Public Library and Community Center is presenting an exhibit of the photography of Joe Gambino  through February. The public is invited to attend a wine and cheese reception from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24.

After living for 15 years in the Boston area, Gambino fulfilled a dream to settle in the shadow of Sugarloaf Mountain. Growing up in Bangor, he knew even at a young age that he had a strong connection to the Carrabassett Valley area. So two years ago, he left a full-time job doing surgical recovery of organs and tissue for transplant and moved to the valley.

The quality of life and the opportunity to follow his passion for photography made it a simple decision. Often he can be found in the woods or on the road, shooting wildlife and landscapes. When he is not working, he is taking full advantage of everything the area has to offer year-round, either on the slopes or on Flagstaff Lake.
