"29 Mainers" Art Exhibit & Community Conversation

Artist, Erin Moore and the Mars Hill Group Founder, Jermaine Moore presented “29 Mainers” an original art exhibit and community conversation at the Kittery Community Center on May, 13, 2022.

Art Exhibit Opening Reception at the Morgan Gallery

The “29 Mainers” art exhibit opening reception took place at the Kittery Community Center Morgan Gallery from 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM on May 13, 2022. 

Attendees of the reception had the opportunity to meet the artist and view her original art project, which she says was created from a desire to add black faces to the world of fine art portraiture, where they are vastly underrepresented.  The exhibit and opening reception were free and open to the public.  The event included light refreshments and music by Midnight Barbeque.

Using the “29 Mainers” artwork as a jumping off point, Moore explored the concept of representation and discussed the fundamentals of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). Participants had the opportunity to expand their thinking and brainstorm pathways to creating a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive community.
