The American Spirit

An all Media, Member Only Show

June 4 - June 28

Thursday through Sunday, 12 to 5 pm

Show Description: 
What are the images that evoke the American Spirit for you? Are they of patriotism, nostalgia, courage or something else? 

This exhibit will be connected with an exhibit, sponsored by us at the same time in the Kennebunk Room in the York Public Library, of a collection of photographs taken by a young American soldier, Galen E. Leavitt, during the Korean Conflict.
The exhibit is a collection of black and white and color photographs of people, planes, landscapes, and humanity from 60 year-old restored color slides and black and white prints taken while Galen was in the U.S.A.F., stationed in Japan and flying missions into South Korea from 1951-1953. Galen's work affirms the spirt of adventure and inquisitiveness about another culture.
We also will feature panels from the YAA Fiber Arts Group that celebrate the Town of York in this show.
