The Maine Photography Show

(Presented by Boothbay Region Art Foundation)

MPS, the premier juried gallery show of photography in Maine,
closes after 17 years of exhibitions.

Announcement letter by MPS Committee Chair Bruce Burnham:

Dear Fellow Photographers,

Many have inquired about the Maine Photography Show as of late and whether there will be one. I write now with a heavy heart to inform you that after 17 years the Maine Photography Show will not continue. Having been part of the original committee and having been the chairman for the last 14 years, I need to back away and do more for myself. At this time no one has stepped forward to take my place so the end has come.

Thank you to the committee members both past and present. I would not have been able to do this without you. We will miss seeing all our old friends and meeting the new ones. And we all enjoyed seeing many people exhibit for the first time!

I am always thinking about a way, not to replace, but to try a new avenue to tout your great work, so please be on the lookout for a notice on our website ( or Facebook page in the near future.

On behalf of the Boothbay Region Art Foundation, myself and the Maine Photography Show committee, we thank you for supporting this adventure over its span.
“Do not cry because it‘s over. Rejoice because it even happened.“

Thanks and Be Well

Bruce E Burnham
