AARP of Maine presents to Amy Madge of Wells, the 2015 Caregiver’s Award for her dedication and care for her mother. Also presenting at the Whitney Galleries are Senator Ron Collins from the Maine Senate, Patricia Hymanson, a member of Maine’s house of representatives, and Bonnie Porthier, staff member for U.S. Senator Angus King.
When WPXT TV came into the gallery a couple of weeks ago looking to see if I wanted to be featured in one of their Our Maine Road Trip Wells segments, I wasn’t sure about being ready for prime time or not. However, during the pre-production planning meeting, I was made very comfortable about what the effort would entail, and what the results could mean.
I was very impressed with the team of photographers, videographers, and the host whose 3-hour visit netted a significant amount of film, digital photography, and interviews with artists, and customers alike. The segment only lasted 3:00 minutes, but was brilliantly consolidated down from everything, indoor and outdoor they captured that afternoon.
I am very pleased that the segment provides a very good showing, not only of what we have to offer here at The Whitney Galleries, but highlighting the mission, goals, and objectives of this endeavor. I hope you enjoy it.
President, The Whitney Galleries
This group show features three of our artists working in conjunction with some of the scientists here on the coast of Maine in an effort to draw attention to and awareness of the significant impact we, as a society, are having on our environment, particularly as it relates to conditions of the Gulf of Maine and the surrounding ecosystems. The Whitney Galleries and others sponsoring this initiative feel strongly in the role that art can play to enhance the message that we, as caretakers of our planet and it’s natural resources, are responsible to do our part to preserve the environment. The Gulf of Maine is no exception to the many areas where increased awareness of environmental issues have had a positive effect on the ongoing health of our world’s environment and bring to light the role we must all play toward that end.
