Photographers Bob Bond and Brad Sevaldson have combined their photographic talents for a new show at the Maine Art Gallery in Wiscasset. Bond’s work is a visual record what’s going on in the streets of the world, while Sevaldson’s inspiration comes from water and landscapes and objects.
An opening reception with music provided by the cabaret duo, Colleen Powers and Jim Rice, will be held on Sept. 7 from 5-8 p.m. After that date, the gallery hours will be 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday through Saturday until Sept. 28.
Bob Bond has been photographing the life around him since he first picked up a camera at the age of 14. Primarily known for his commercial portrait photography and graphic design, Bob’s passion is to get out of the studio and capture images of people. The series in this exhibit includes photographs taken over the past thirty years from Athens, New York City, Las Vegas, and various New England towns and cities. Bob’s solo shows, “Grab Shots” and “Snap Shots” have been exhibited in several galleries throughout New England as well as the Massachusetts State House.
Brad Sevaldson’s career has revolved around commercial art and visual presentation. His love of photography started in 1996 with the first of many annual trips to Maine and has continued at an even greater pace since he moved to Wiscasset several years ago. He likes to capture graphic subject matter and believes that it is important to include design and balance in his images, some of which are enhanced or manipulated in a manner that makes them truly unique. Brad’s work has been shown in Maine and in juried shows in Florida.
Colleen Powers brings her traditional cabaret to clubs and cafes throughout New England. Her unique blend of bawdy, irreverent humor and soaring vocals make her a crowd favorite. Jim Rice arranges music and performs regularly with the Three Swingin’ Tenors. He appears most Sundays with Colleen at Club Cafe in Boston.
