The public is invited to a Sunset Seminar presentation on Maine’s coastal beauty by acclaimed photographer Peter Ralston Wednesday, Aug. 13, at 7 p.m. at the Camden Yacht Club, 68 Bay View St.

Maine’s preeminent coastal photographer will share his images, some iconic, some new, and the stories behind them. Ralston does not pretend or aspire to be terribly “arty” about what he does; for 35 years, he has simply poked around the nooks and crannies of the Maine Coast — always with a camera. Daniel O’Leary, Director of the Portland Museum of Art, has called him “the direct spiritual descendent of Winslow Homer in his loving and solemn response to the Maine coast and the people who live in harmony alongside its austere beauty.”

For more information, call 236-7033.
