WISCASSET — For its final show of the season, the Maine Art Gallery plans to feature four fine art photographers, each celebrating Maine through their own point of view and aesthetic.

Works by Terry Hire, Jim Nickelson, Lisa Mossel Vietze and Olga Merrill explore the state through both abstract and representational imagery, all with a unique take on aspects of local surroundings.

The show is scheduled to open with a reception from 4 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25, at 15 Warren St.

Jud Caswell, a singer-songwriter in the folk tradition, will provide music.

The show runs through Saturday, Oct. 16. Gallery hours are from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.

This show, originally conceived by Lisa Mossel Vietze for the Archipelago Gallery in Rockland, has been reimagined for the Maine Art Gallery with new works and nearly the same roster of artists.

Hire, who passed away in early 2020, was a designer and gardener who focused his photography on the abandoned man-made environment.

Merrill’s seascape images have an almost meditatively slow feel of a mysterious, painted picture.

Vietze is drawn to botanicals for their color, vibrations, form, and vitality. She finds beauty in smaller landscapes, like that in a flower.

Nickelson uses photography to grapple with the unknown and humanity’s relationship to the Universe. His inquiry is wide ranging, delving into the realm of science and cosmology.

“Our Maine” is sponsored by Bob Bond of 40 Federal Street Studio. Season Sponsor for the Maine Art Gallery is Sherri Dunbar of Tim Dunham Realty.

In “Pyrotechnic #185” Jim Nickelson explores the ways people seek to impose order on what they experience. Contributed photo
