Exhibiting at the Bates College Museum of Art through Oct. 16 are Will Richard, a nature photographer from Georgetown, Maine, and Grace Knowlton, a nationally known artist whose works at Bates are inspired by earthen mounds.
[singlepic id=3970 w=240 float=right template=post-caption] Richard has studied nature photography with Jim Blair, Gary Braasch, André Gallant, David Middleton, Freeman Patterson and Brenda Tharp. His work has been exhibited at the Chocolate Church, L.L. Bean, Maine Audubon, the Maine State House, Bowdoin College’s Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum, the Quebec-Labrador Foundation and the University of New England.
This semester Richard teaches the seminar “Perceptions of Place and Time — High Altitude Bioregions” at Bates. With the goal of developing students’ skills of perception, particularly visual, this seminar combines classroom work and field trips as far afield as the Gaspé Peninsula, in the province of Quebec. Richard’s position at Bates as a fellow in environmental studies occurs through a program, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, designed to tap the expertise of off-campus experts from Maine and away.
The Bates College Museum of Art is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sundays. School groups and other tours are welcome. To schedule, please call 207-786-8302; for information, please call 207-786-6158.
