Boothbay Region Art Foundation, sponsor of the fifth annual statewide “ARTinME” exhibit, has announced the judge for this year’s show will be Liberty’s Kerstin Engman, Assistant Professor of Art at the University of Maine, Orono.

“ARTinME” presents a fresh and selective look at the fine art being produced by Maine artists today, showing originality and skill in the painting, drawing and sculpture media. Monetary prizes, amounting to $1,500, will be awarded.

There is a limit of two entries per artist; entry fee is $20, $15 for BRAF members. For show specifics, guidelines for artwork and registration forms, visit (Forms) or call 633-2703. Delivery of artwork will be Tuesday, Oct. 14, from noon to 7 p.m.; or Wednesday, Oct. 15, from 9 a.m. to noon at BRAF’s gallery, 1e Townsend Ave., diagonally across the street from the Memorial Library.

Engman received her bachelor of fine arts degree from the Maine College of Art and master’s from the University of Pennsylvania. Although her artistic focus was as a sculptor for 25 years, for the past decade she has painted the Maine landscape and worked from what she defines as “the simplest forms of still life.”

“ARTinME” will open with a gala reception and presentation of awards Saturday, Oct. 18.
