HALLOWELL — The Harlow, in partnership with the Capital Area New Mainers Project, will present “A Nation of Immigrants: Home Lost, Home Found” from Nov. 2-24, at 100 Water St. An opening reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3.

This is a raw and fraught time in the world as many struggle to respond to the fact that 65 million people have been displaced from their homes. What is the experience of those newly arrived and those who may have come long ago? What has been gained, what has been lost? What does it mean to be a nation of immigrants?

Participating artists are listed alphabetically by town: Fatimah Halwah, Mohammed Halwah, Jason Morgan and collaborative artwork by Cony High School students, Augusta; Lesia Sochor, Brooks; Mirlea Saks, Falmouth; Barbara Loken and Pasang Tsering, Farmingdale; Jeanne Finley, Garland; Chris Cart and Ellen Freed, Hallowell; Arend Thibodeau, Hartland; Taya Brown, Megan Czerwinski, Nevin Sabatini, Jerry Widodo and Siyin Yan, Xia Zuyao, Kents Hill; Helene Farrar, Manchester; Rabee Kiwan, Portland; and Kay Morris, West Gardiner.
