Stirrings

Liz McGhee

This body of work has been created as Maine has been trying to find its way towards spring. I find inspiration in organic textures, shapes, and processes. I incorporate printing from natural objects to add the element of chance and surprise to my process and to nurture an ongoing a conversation with the page.

A portion of any work sold from this exhibit will be donated to ILAP, the Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project. Much thanks to Frontier for this opportunity.

Sage

Collin Howell

Life at Winterberry Farm is the only life Sage has ever known. Her mother, Mary, moved to the farm shortly before Sage was born. The old dairy farm, built in 1870, had been dormant for twenty years before Mary bought it in 2001. Mary’s dream was to revitalize the forty acre farm so she could live there with her family and earn a living from the land. With the help of her oldest daughter, Kenya, her son, Gil, Sage, and farm apprentices, Mary has realized this dream.

Today, the horse-and-oxen powered organic farm not only provides food for the family, but for 50 other local families through its community supported agriculture program. The farm also has a farmstand, equipped with a commercial kitchen, where the family cooks and sells goods from the farm.

Sage spends many hours of her day outside helping to run the farm. She plays and explores with the wonder of a child, but works with the strength and maturity of an adult.

What is it like to be this young farmer? This ongoing work looks at the life of a family farm through the eyes of a young girl whose only home has been this land that her mother credits for giving her and her children safety, security, and a living.

Faces of Farms

Catherine Frost

Farm animals selflessly feed out hearts, souls and bodies.

They keep us warm, healthy and happy, asking very little in return but some hay, a dry spot to sleep and, in some cases, a regular milking.

They instinctually protect us and one another: herding, feeding and playing as communities should.

As much as these animals appear to be the same, when you look more closely, you see each is a unique and fascinating creature whose expression tells its very own story.
