Maritime Photo Show and Auction
Wednesday through Friday 10-2
Evenings of Opera House Performances with Tickets
Stop by the Opera House Upstairs Gallery in Boothbay Harbor to see a great show of local fishing photos and place your bids to take one home. Framed 16x20 photos will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Five large 30x40 reproductions will also be auctioned. All proceeds benefit the Boothbay Region Maritime Foundation and the Opera House. The photos will be on display during August and September. The Opera House Gallery is open Wednesday-Friday from 10-2, in addition to being open for ticket holders on the evenings of performances.
These photos are a small selection of the community sourced Boothbay Region Maritime Foundation Research Collection. It is a collaboration among the Penobscot Marine Museum (PMM), the Boothbay Region Historical Society (BRHS) and BRMF. Contributors loan their photos for digitization by professional archivists at the Penobscot Marine Museum. Digital copies are added to an online collection that is accessible to the public FREE of charge. Donors include the Department of Marine Resources, the Boothbay Register, and the Boothbay Memorial Library as well as individuals from the region. The show is made possible by a grant from the Maine Community Foundation. This is an ongoing project. Contact BRMF if you have photos to loan or donate or information about photos already included in the collection. You can email them at BRMaritimeFoundation@gmail.com.
