“Wayfaring,” a pop-up art show featuring photographs by Drew Cornwall, Ashley Craig, Alec Kaus, Christine Moriello and Harrison Walker, will open with a 5 to 6:30 p.m. reception Wednesday, May 10, at Maine Media Gallery, 18 Central St.

Gallery hours for this show are: noon to 5 p.m. Thursday, May 11; 2 to 5 p.m. Friday, May 12; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday, May 18 and 19; and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 20.

“Wayfaring” showcases the work of five emerging photographers who all currently live and work in Midcoast Maine. The work on view presents each artist’s exploration of place and identity; hailing from different parts of the country, these photographers have each found themselves in Maine for the moment.

Drew Cornwall is a versatile photographic artist and fine art printer from Florida and based in Camden. Since graduating with a BFA in Photography from Savannah College of Art and Design, Cornwall has been working alongside of photographers John Paul Caponigro, Cig Harvey and Joyce Tenneson. He is now employed as the director of communications for John Paul Caponigro's studio and company, Caponigro Arts, in Cushing.

Ashley Elizabeth Craig is an artist and educator living in Camden. She received a BMA in Media Arts from the University of South Carolina and an MFA in Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design. She is the photography program director at Maine Media Workshops + College.

Alec Kaus is an artist and photographer currently living and working in Maine. He holds a BA in Studio Art from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, where he served as president of the Fine Art Photo Club and worked as the gallery assistant at Prescott Gallery.

Christine Moriello grew up on a fourth-generation apple farm in the Hudson Valley of New York. In 2013, she received her Bachelor of Arts in History at Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, N.Y. Moriello came to Maine Media in 2015 for the 12-week Photography Intensive and received her Professional Certificate in Visual Storyteling in 2016. She currently works at Maine Media as the communications coordinator and lives in Rockland.

Harrison Walker received his MFA in Photography at Tyler School of Art, Temple University, in Philadelphia. He currently lives in Rockport, working at Maine Media Workshops + College. Walker is interested in the visual language created by the limits of the basic chemical components in photography and explores this through abstract forms, often containing little to no subject.

Maine Media Gallery showcases photographic and multi-media work of students, alumni and faculty, as well as innovative media artists pertinent to our community. The gallery offers an outstanding collection of donated faculty work for sale, with proceeds benefiting Maine Media’s scholarship fund.
