KVCC "Late Start" semester to begin Sept. 22
KVCC "Late Start" semester to begin Sept. 22. Kennebec Valley Community College (KVCC) is offering a "Late Start" 12-week session of academic courses beginning Sept. 22. Approximately a dozen courses required by a wide range of college programs are being offered in this compact Late-Start schedule to students not already registered for the regular Fall 2014 semester. These courses can be applied not only toward KVCC degree programs, but transferred to other colleges and universities, and offer an ideal opportunity for students pursuing four-year degrees to earn credits toward those degrees while taking advantage of KVCC s low tuition rate of $90 per credit hour. By providing a series of commonly-required courses in a compact, convenient semester, KVCC hopes to give students another option for beginning or continuing an education. The courses offered were chosen based on high demand and some are being provided online to increase the convenience for students. The Late Start semester will end Dec. 13. To learn more about Late Start semester options, call 207-453-5822.

"Art in the Park" Artist Reception
The "Art in the Park" program, entering its fifth year, features a grouping of sculptures by artist Anne Alexander. The sculpture is currently on view in Johnson Park on Water Street, and will be displayed through October. Anne Alexander's sculptures are carved from logs using power tools such as chainsaw, pneumatic carving tools, and grinders. As part of the Gardiner River Festival, the artist will be demonstrating her techniques and will have a booth at the Art and Craft Fair. A reception with Anne Alexander will be held at Circling the Square Fine Art Press at 3pm. "As an artist, I am concerned with inspiring emotional or kinesthetic responses in the viewer. I also wish to enhance one's awareness of his/her body, size, and surrounding space as it relates to the natural world, explains Anne Alexander. "My work is successful to me, when it causes these reactions in many ages and types of people. Small parts of nature are the source of ideas and inspiration. Natural forms are abstracted and enlarged to create works which suggest themes of regeneration, growth, life cycles, and stages of maturation." "Art in the Park" is provided by a grant from the Harry Faust art Fund and is supported by the City of Gardiner, Gardiner Main Street, and the Maine Arts Commission. "This year's sculpture gives us the opportunity to see artwork displayed throughout the park, giving the community an opportunity to engage with the sculpture," says Patrick Wright, Executive Director of Gardiner Main Street. Harry Faust was a creative photographer and avid supporter of arts in local communities. He owned The Framemakers in Waterville, and upon his death, he left funds to support art in communities. Gardiner was one of the beneficiaries of five years of support through the Harry Faust Art Fund. Artist Reception Date: June 21, 2014 and Exhibition on view: Through October 31, 2013. The Gardiner Main Street program is one of four original nationally accredited Main Street programs in the state of Maine. The program uses a comprehensive approach to strengthen Gardiner as a regional focal point for commerce, culture, and community.

Gardiner Art Show - Maine: Always in Season
Maine: Always in Season. The seasons in Maine have captured the imaginations of Jim and Fran Townsend since their relocation here from Vermont nearly 15 years ago. Totting cameras and equipment, this husband and wife team of photographers/artists has traveled from coast to mountains in all seasons. As they wander Maine, the couple ascribe to the idea that at any time and place, within 100 yards, a person can find something to photograph or paint. The public is invited to join us for the opening reception on September 5th from 5:30-9pm. Jim, a self-described Red Barn-o-holic, turns his lens on everything from animals to rusted cars. Jim has been a life-long landscaper, stone mason, musician and photographer. He describes his relationship with photography this way, Photography is not my life, but it may be my religion. His range of work encompasses his belief that newer genres of photography require different styles and perspectives, and that the art of creative photography is enhanced by the availability of modern digital cameras, filters and processes. HDR photography is Jim s newest interest, turning traditional imagery into modern works of art. Fran s pastel work leans more toward the natural landscapes and streetscapes of Maine. For Fran her paintings capture not only a landscape, she explains, A painting should evoke a memory of a moment once experienced. She grew up in Vermont, where living, working and playing were inherently connected to the weather, the seasons, the land and the life cycles of plants and animals. Her paintings reflect the subtle colors, shifting light and varied textures in nature. Beyond the opening reception of Maine: Always in Season, the show can be seen during regular business hours- Tuesday-Friday 10-6 and Saturdays 12-6 through November 1st, 2014.
