Vacationland, in its catering to appeal to the seasonal tourists, has become the lobster caricature, the pot buoys on the side of the garage, and all the moose-themed paraphernalia available for sale.

The PINE TREE STATEment exhibition invites all Maine artists (and artists with a connection to the great state) to re-imagine, re-assign, re-invent and take ownership of Maine’s iconography. How do you represent all that Maine has to offer: the ocean, forests, lighthouses, animal life, and culinary treats? How can we paint lighthouses and seascapes in a new, more progressive way? How do you represent Maine’s iconographic imagery?
