Nolin shows at The Harlow

Dec 30, 2018
Belfast artist Maxwell Nolin’s “Burden,” an oil on panel, is part of a show he shares with Nathan Allard this winter at The Harlow in Hallowell.

Hallowell — The Harlow, 100 Water St., will open “Commonplace,” a two-person exhibition featuring portraits by Nathan Allard of Somerville and Maxwell Nolin of Belfast, Friday, Jan. 4. The public is invited to meet the artists at the opening-day reception from 5 to 7 p.m.

In “Commonplace,” Allard and Nolin highlight people of New England through portraits and figure paintings represented in oil and egg tempera paint. The exhibition takes a look at the simple, quiet moments in life and offers a space for contemplation and reflection.

The Harlow is a membership-based 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to connecting and celebrating art, artists and community in downtown historic Hallowell since 1963. Exhibitions are always free and open to the public. Programming is funded in part by a Partnership Grant from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Art.

“Commonplace: Portraits by Nathan Allard and Maxwell Nolin” will run through Feb. 9. The Harlow is open Wednesdays through Saturdays from noon to 6 p.m., as well as by chance or appointment. For more information, call 622-3813; email; or visit
