Nancy R. Davison - Linocuts: Past & Present

Showing June-September 2017

Artist Reception - June 9 - 5:30-7:00pm

 “Linocuts: Past & Present” is a beautiful exhibit of works by Nancy R. Davison in the Morgan Gallery at the Kittery Community Center. This exhibit will be shown June through September, 2017. The public is invited to an Opening Reception with refreshments on Friday, June 9th at 5:30pm. Come hear the artist talk about the works and her process. 

Nancy R. Davison has been making linoleum cuts of the world around her for fifty years. Many of her images come from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as well as York Beach and Ogunquit, Maine. Others have been inspired by trips to Italy, Japan and the third floor stair landing of the Portland Art Museum. She still loves architectural subjects but the focus of her work is changing. She uses Noah’s Ark as a potent visual metaphor for her increasing concern about climate change. The symptoms of global warming – Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and the flooding of her own studio in York Beach in 2006 – have seeped into her imagery.

Davison learned printmaking from Leonard Baskin at Smith College and set up her own printmaking studio after graduation. She had her own gallery, BlueStocking Studio, in York Beach ME from 1985 to 2007. Davison’s passion for printmaking in all forms led to her doctoral dissertation, “E.W. Clay: Political Caricaturist of the Jacksonian Era.” She has published several articles on historical American and English prints and lectures on the history of printmaking. Davison is currently Treasurer of the Ogunquit Arts Collaborative/Barn Gallery. She is listed in Who’s Who, Who’s Who in American Women and Who’s Who in American Art.

The Morgan Gallery, at the Kittery Community Center, is made possible through a generous donation by the Morgan Family of Kittery, ME.

Joy, Beauty & Simplicity

Dawn Jenkins has been exploring the world of photography her whole life. Her photographs capture spontaneity in play and nature. During hours of uninterrupted nature play in the forest, the children that she teaches do not take notice of her as she captures their image. She notices beauty in the smallest of subjects and captures that joy. Often it is a color contrast or a reflection, ever so simple, that catches her eye.
This is Dawn’s debut showing of her photography!  Drop by and enjoy life as she sees it behind a lens.

Call to Artists

Local Visual Artists Invited to Submit Proposals

The Kittery Community Center at Frisbee Common, the newly renovated center and performing arts space, invites local visual artists to submit proposals for review.

Located at 120 Rogers Road in Kittery, ME, the community center offers a state-of-the-art performing center and arts exhibition space available for artists. The proposals will be reviewed by the Visual Arts Committee responsible for curating the performance center’s programming. The Committee plans to schedule an ongoing series of month-long art exhibits at the KCC to showcase artists from the greater Kittery community and provide regional artists a brand new artistic venue.

Designated areas for the art exhibits are prominently located at the entrance to the Star Theatre and may expand to additional spaces. Selected artists will be scheduled for three-month-long exhibits of solo or group shows.  If not chosen for display in the Gallery, there are other areas in the building that the Visual Arts Committee may suggest to hang your work.

Professional artists are encouraged to go to www.kitterycommunitycenter.org/forms/MorganGallery-ExhibitProposal.pdf and fill out the Exhibit Proposal form and submit to Visual Arts Committee Chairperson Sue Cobler at This email address is being protected from spambots.
