Center for Maine Contemporary Art (CMCA), 21 Winter Street, Rockland, has been awarded a lead project grant of $7,500 from the Maine Bicentennial Commission. The grant will support presentation of the exhibition, “S.B. Walker: Nor’east,” which will be held at CMCA in summer 2020. A photographic portrait of Maine, the exhibit is part of CMCA’s celebration of the state’s 200th anniversary. S.B. Walker (b. 1987) lives and works in Portland. Since early 2014, he has travelled more than 100,000 miles throughout Maine taking photos, following what he calls “a windy road dictated by intuition, serendipity and strange happenings.” Walker’s photos have been exhibited internationally and can be found in public and private collections, including Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Fitchburg Art Museum; Smith College Museum of Art; David Winton Bell Gallery at Brown University; Houston Museum of Fine Arts; Peabody Essex Museum; The Thoreau Institute; and Paul Sack Photographic Trust. His projects have been featured in The New York Times, The Atlantic, The Guardian and Smithsonian Magazine, among other publications.
