Exhibit: Pretty Picture--What’s the Point?

In March, the Blue Hill Public Library’s Britton Gallery and Howard Room will feature the photography of Lisa Looke. A college professor once asked Lisa, “Pretty picture–what’s the point?” Over the past two decades, she has built a photographic portfolio in answer to this question.

Lisa’s subjects include features of everyday life on mid-coast Maine– those of family, friends, pastimes, transportation, and the enduring Maine landscape. According to press materials for the exhibit, “Her images transcend the familiar to the iconic, rendering works that reflect on childhood, beauty, and nature. Often, we can see our own stories in her photographs, collective memories of milestones and time.”

Lisa lived in Blue Hill for 15 years before moving to Camden for work and school. Her photographs have appeared in magazines and books. She collaborates with Kathryn Dillon; both are principals with the emerging firm Blue Hill Press & Design.

The show will be in the library’s Britton Gallery and Roland Howard Room, available for viewing beginning March 2nd, during library hours subject to the Howard Room schedule. For more information contact the library at 374-5515.
