    New Exhibit : Major Mason in Space,  Adventure of a 1960′s Mattel Action Figure

    This Summer we are pleased to feature an new exhibit of Major Matt Mason inspired photographs!  The exhibit, Major Mason in Space, Adventure of a 1960′s Mattel Action Figure, features images taken during the late 1960′s, amid the heyday of the NASA space exploration program. Mattel action space figure Major Matt Mason and his four companions, Sargent Storm, Ben Long, civilian astronaut Doug Davis, and Callisto the Jovian (from Jupiter) were photographed over 50 years ago by John Orcutt. Using current digital technology, these classic action figures have been superimposed into landscapes made from modern day imagery from the Hubbell Telescope and other space photography – creating incredible fantasy space action scenes. Cam Held was the master of the digital creations. The crew of spacemen are depicted in a variety of non-violent missions, adventures and discovery.  If you are a NASA fan, a Mattel action figure fan, a fan of outer space or just someone who loves a beautiful, fantasy photograph, this exhibit is a must see! The exhibit opens during the Kingfield Pops Artwalk on June 26 from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. and will remain through August.

    02.16 IOM, Cathedral Pines in SnowCathedral Pines, located in Eustis, Maine is one of the largest old-growth stands of Red Pines (Pinus Resinosa) in the North East United States. This beautiful mature Red Pine forest on the shore of Flagstaff Lake at 1,150′ above sea level is the site of a popular seasonal campground.  Fresh snow on smaller spruce trees provides separation and scale for the towering red pine trunks reaching to the forest canopy.
