Maine Media Gallery, 18 Central St., will open “Journeys,” an exhibition featuring work by distinguished photographer Arthur Meyerson, Tuesday, June 28, to run through July 30. A reception with Meyerson will be held Wednesday, July 20, from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

“Journeys,” a retrospective, takes viewers from Brazil to Japan to Paris as Meyerson observes and records the diverse cultures, landscapes and people of our world. Whether it is a bright red car in Havana, a Masai elder in Tanzania, or a taxidermy shop in Texas, Meyerson’s attention to light and color reveal a deep sensitivity in capturing the daily moments of life with his careful and discerning lens.

Meyerson, an award winning photographer and highly sought-after workshop instructor, has traveled around the world creating advertising, corporate, editorial and fine art photographs. He is a three-time winner of Adweek's Southwest Photographer of the Year award; is on Communication World's list of Top 10 corporate photographers; and was named as one of the 30 best advertising photographers by American Photo. His dedication to his personal work has resulted in an impressive body of fine art photographs, many of which were published in 2012 in his highly acclaimed book, “The Color of Light.”

Meyerson’s photographs are in the collections of several major institutions and have been exhibited internationally. His work also has been profiled in numerous publications including Communication Arts, Rangefinder, Camera Arts, Graphis, Digital Photo Pro, Zoom, Portfolio, Idea, Novum, Photo World and Fotodigital. His teaching credentials consist of engagements throughout the United States and abroad, including Maine Media Workshops + College, where he will return July 17 through 23.

Maine Media Gallery hours are weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and by appointment. Admission is free.
