The Bowdoinham Guild exhibit will be the first that CCAC has presented since renovating its gallery space, which is housed in the annex adjacent to its main theater space. In January, a team of volunteers, led by CCAC board member and gallery curator Kimberly Becker, repainted walls, sanded and painted the floor, and built and installed movable walls that will allow for more artwork to be shown at one time.
