05/07/14 - Saturday May 10th, 7 – 9 pm at 89 Central Street, Bangor.

May 7, 2014 – Bangor, ME: KAHBANG Arts, the non-profit organization that helps to produce the annual KAHBANG music | art | film Festival, has announced the construction of a new art gallery space on 89 Central Street in downtown Bangor. The KAHBANG Arts Central Gallery officially opens on May 10th with an Opening Party & Mixer from 7-9 pm that is open to the public. The event will feature music, a raffle to raise funds for the gallery, food from The Whoopie Pie Café, and libations provided by Geaghan Brothers Brewing. The opening exhibit, to be featured through May, is Maine artist Scott Minzy. His work, I Remember Tomorrow, features prints created from hand-made woodcarvings.

“I am incredibly excited to be opening a space that KAHBANG Arts can call their own. Opening this gallery is the first stepping stone in reaching our goal of drawing in artists from all over the state so we can help to develop, support, and educate them in new and exciting capacities, year round. This is something that my team has been working very hard on for the past year and seeing it come to fruition, along with the support of the community, is very exciting and encouraging to us that we’re providing the community with something they were missing. I really encourage people to come down to the mixer, have a great time and see what we’re all about.”

-Meg Shorette, KAHBANG Arts Executive Director

Gallery exhibits are planned to rotate 12 times per year, and will include programming as part of the KAHBANG Festival in August, with a new exhibit opening on the first Saturday of every month. In addition to exhibits, the Central Gallery will host artist talks, workshops, musicians and other creative events throughout the year. KAHBANG Arts stands strongly behind its belief that galleries should be uncensored spaces open to all ages that provide artists with the opportunity to connect with new audiences.

Spring Gallery Opening:

KBA is proud to showcase the first viewing of the series "Dreamscapes" by Maine fine art photographer, Lisa B. 
Martin, as our Spring 'Office Gallery' installation. Martin exhibited "Panorama" at the 2012 KBA Spring Gallery. About "Dreamscapes"..."Following in line with traditional practices of Surrealism, these images reference dreamscapes brought to light in an attempt to “rupture the symbolic” through metaphor, myth making and symbolism. These images informed the “Panorama” series and could be seen as an addendum to that work". Learn more about Lisa B. Martin’s work online at Maine Art Scene Magazine. All fine art photography is matted, framed and priced for sale.

P.S. - We think it's cool.
