On Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 3 p.m., Julia’s Gallery for Young Artists at the Farnsworth Art Museum will host a gallery talk for its current show, “Midcoast Maine — More than Meets the Eye.” The talk is open to the public, free of charge. Julia’s Gallery is located on the downtown corner of Union and Elm streets.

The exhibition, a photographic celebration of working waterfronts from Port Clyde to Belfast as seen through the eyes of teenage photographers, was co-sponsored by Julia’s Gallery, Trekkers and Maine Media Workshops. It marks the culmination of Photo Treks, an eight-week expeditionary learning photography program. During the gallery talk, students from Julia’s Gallery and Trekkers will share their experiences in the Photo Treks program, as well as the behind-the-scenes steps taken to prepare and install the show. Attendees will have time to view the photographs and the exhibition catalog, ask questions and give feedback to the students.

“Midcoast Maine — More than Meets the Eye” is on display at Julia’s Gallery for Young Artists at the Farnsworth Art Museum through March 7. During the show, Julia’s Gallery is open Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Reprints of the photographs are for sale, and the exhibition catalog may be purchased as well. All profits will go directly towards future programs through Julia’s Gallery and Trekkers.
