The Pace Galleries of Art presents an opening reception for an exhibition in support of “Fryeburg, Maine: An Illustrated History,” a new book by Brad Fuller from 4-7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 27, at the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center at Fryeburg Academy.

The book explores the challenges the early settlers faced as they traveled unworn paths in what was still a vast wilderness, and celebrates their triumphs. There was a nobility of spirit that shaped Fryeburg into the community it is today.  There are tales of resilience and innovation as industry grew within the town. Each chapter reveals a layer of Fryeburg’s past told through narratives and memories of the early residents.

The art exhibit will include artifacts and paintings from the Samuel Osgood House Museum, as well as prints taken from some of the beautifully restored photographs found throughout the book.

Admission is free. Books and prints will be available for purchase.

The exhibition will be open to the public on Tuesdays from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. and Thursdays from 1 p.m.-4 p.m. when Fryeburg Academy is in session and at other times by appointment. Email, or call 207-544-9066 to schedule a visit at another time. The LHE/PAC is located at 18 Bradley St., Fryeburg, on the campus of Fryeburg Academy.
