For the month of October, Eastport Arts Center’s Washington Street Gallery will feature 'Through Her Lens: Women Photographers Of Mid-Coast Maine, 1895-1925,' an exhibition loaned by the Penobscot Marine Museum. Since photography’s inception in 1839, women have been involved in the making of images. Constance Fox Talbot experimented with photography even as her husband William Fox Talbot was perfecting his process, the calotype, which generated the world’s first photographic negative in 1841. A handful of women began opening daguerreotype studios in Europe and the United States in the early 1840s, and were among the first professionals in this technical field at a time when most women either didn’t work outside the home, or were employed as domestic servants, schoolteachers, nurses, or laborers in the textile industry.

Pembroke Library 221 Old County Road
Pembroke, ME 04666 United States

“Gamming” was the word used by 19th century seafarers when two or more ships met at sea and shared in an evening of singing. On October 3rd the Pembroke Library will hold a “Gam” when coastal Washington County’s own “From Away Downeast” is joined by special guests Bob Zentz and Jeanne McDougall, of Norfolk, Virginia, and Kathy Westra and George Stephens, of Rockland, Maine. Bob Zentz, a former U. S. Coast Guardsman, almost single-handedly brought about the traditional music revival in eastern Virginia during the 1970s. He has toured throughout North America and Western Europe. Bob’s wife, Jeanne MacDougall, is a noted scholar of 18th and 19th century songs of the sea and of seaports. Kathy Westra and George Stephens have a great repertoire of traditional songs, and are long-time leaders in the New England folk-song revival. The audience will be invited to sing along on many rousing and easily learned choruses, while getting to hear a great variety of traditional instruments including concertina, fiddle, hurdy-gurdy, a variety of banjos, guitars and ukuleles, and many, many more.
