JIM MOHLER

Please enjoy this virtual display of photographs by Jim Mohler (PDF), a Freeport photographer whose interest favors landscapes, coastal scenes, and wildlife. After this past year, with the pandemic still raging, an online display seemed most appropriate. Most of the photographs were taken in quiet places in Maine while some originated in the Anza Borrego desert last spring where he and his wife were visiting before the pandemic was starting to manifest itself.

In addition to prints some of the photographs are being developed into note cards available through his website. Display prints are available in various sizes as printed on aluminum backing and under acrylic glass. They are priced based on the material they are printed on and size. His website can be found at: jimsprints.net.

ART EXHIBITS @ FCL

Freeport Community Library is an avid supporter of the arts, especially those artists from our community. Each month we feature a different artist or collective. Each exhibit is month-long.

Typically artwork goes up the first day of the month scheduled and is picked-up the last day of that month. If the library isn’t open on the 1st of the month since it falls on a Sunday or holiday, then artwork goes up the first day the library is open. And, if the library is closed the last day of the month then the artwork is picked-up earlier in the month.

We have 30 wooden easels that accommodate small to medium framed or matted paintings and photographs.

Artists may sell exhibited artwork. Each piece should be well signed with pricing and the artist’s contact information so that the prospective buyer can contact the artist directly. The library does not take payment for artwork. We should also be given the name of the person who is authorized by the artist to pick-up the artwork unless the artist and purchaser have made other, off-site arrangements for this. The library will not release artwork to someone stating they have purchased artwork unless we have been notified and authorized by the artist to do so.

A Loaned Material Acceptance form needs to be completed and left at the library when the exhibit is installed. It is best if the artist can plan on installing and taking down their exhibit. If for some reason the artist is unable to pick-up their artwork on the final day of the exhibit, the library will take down the exhibit and store artwork in the Director’s office for a short (2-3 day) period of time.

If you have any questions prior to installing your exhibit please feel free to contact Meghan Fogg at mfogg@freeportmaine.com or 865-3307.
