Rockland — Call them kaleidoscopes or mandalas, Belfast photographer Paula B. Cannon’s work is drawing attention at two venues in the Breakwater Marketplace building on Camden Street/Route 1.

In early December, at the request of Curtis Jensen, Cannon of Paula's Impressions set up her first exhibit of Masts at Jensen's Pharmacy. Now, spring has come to Jensen's with her Flower kaleidoscopes. Four floors up, the Gallaghers have extended the exhibit to their office at Continuum Physical Therapy. This exhibit includes scenes of the Midcoast along with the kaleidoscope images drawn from each of the photos. Lines and vivid colors are the first attraction, followed by an examination of each kaleidoscope to find the original hidden within.

Cannon uses a computer program to assist in creating these pictures, and further manipulations allow the creation of many unique designs from each picture. She has been working with kaleidoscope designs for more than two years.

Her work is shown regularly in the Belfast area; her Mast series also is currently on exhibit at the Camden National Bank on Main Street in Belfast. She is a member of Lupine Cottage, an arts cooperative located in East Belfast. Her work is available for purchase by calling 338-3608, sending email to paulabcannon@gmail.com or visiting lupinecottage.net.
