Brick Store Museum hosts new exhibition

KENNEBUNK — The Brick Store Museum is proud to announce its newest exhibition has been curated by guest curator Michael Fillyaw, a Kennebunk-based nature and landscape photographer. The exhibition, titled “The Way Life Is,” officially opened on Wednesday, Jan. 31, displaying Fillyaw’s modern photographs of the state of Maine and its surroundings.

“My representational and abstract images try to capture moments of beauty and insight, suggest a sense of place, evoke emotions, or tell a story,” Fillyaw says.

 Michael Fillyaw has exhibited his work in exhibitions throughout the northeast, including the Yarmouth Art Festival, the Art Guild of the Kennebunks and the Maine Photography Show. Among the many awards for his artistry, Fillyaw’s work, “Rooftops of Paris,” was the Grand Prize Winner of the Brick Store Museum’s inaugural Photograph Contest in 2011.

Visitors to the exhibit can expect to see images of Maine in all seasons, printed on a variety of surfaces including acrylic, paper, and metal. Works in the show will be for sale. “The Way Life Is” will be the feature exhibition during the Museum’s Free February event, which offers free admission to the community during the month of February.

The Brick Store Museum is located at 117 Main St. in Kennebunk’s historic district.  For 76 years, the Museum has been dedicated to preserving and exhibiting the region’s rich cultural and artistic heritage.
