HALLOWELL — The Kennebec Valley Art Association recently received a $2,400 grant from the ME Expansion Art Fund of the Maine Community Foundation to support the second year of a partnership with the University of Maine at Augusta, to jointly present art exhibitions in UMA’s Richmond Gallery in Handley Hall in downtown Augusta. The first joint exhibition of 2015 will be “Higher Forms of Art,” the KVAA’s 9th annual showcase of work by area high school artists, according to a news release from Harlow Gallery. Higher Forms will be on view March 6-28 in UMA’s Richmond Gallery at 331 Water St., in downtown Augusta, with an opening reception on Friday, March 6, with time to be announced. “Higher Forms of Art” gives emerging artists the opportunity to show their work in a professional space, and to get a taste of what goes into organizing a professional art exhibit. The students participate in hanging the exhibition, designing the exhibition postcard, and help to plan and organize the opening reception. Two or three additional exhibitions are currently being planned for the Richmond Gallery in 2015 by Harlow Gallery staff in partnership with UMA’s art and architecture departments.
