The exhibition is a collaboration between Lord Hall Gallery and the Maine-Aomori Printmaking Society (MAPS), an annual art exchange featuring the work of 20 contemporary printmakers from Maine and Aomori, Japan. The exchange is hosted by the nonprofit organization, Friends of Aomori, located in Portland, Maine. The prints are held permanently in the collections of the Munakata Shiko Memorial Museum of Art in Aomori City and at the Friends of Aomori.

“Maine and Aomori Print Exchange: Selected Images” will include 44 prints chosen by the curators, Laurie E. Hicks, professor of art, and Briar Pelletier, an art history alum of UMaine’s Department of Art. The exhibition marks the first time prints from the exchange will be exhibited simultaneously in Maine and Aomori City.
