The Maine Masters Project is a New England Emmy-nominated series of documentaries sponsored by the Union of Maine Visual Artists. It was launched in 1999 and has produced a series of compelling profiles of some of Maine’s most distinguished and often less recognized artists who articulate the importance of art-making. They have screened from the National Gallery of Art to the National Gallery of Australia. The 16th film, Imber’s Left Hand (2014, 74min) screened at over 25 film festivals winning four BEST FILM Audience Awards. The most recent release I Know a Man … Ashley Bryan (2016, 73 min) was premiered at the Maine International and Camden International Film Festivals and will be shown at Hammond Hall on Sunday, August.
Showing on January 3rd:
