Maine Museum of Photographic Arts Exhibits The Paula Tognarelli Collection – MAINE ART SCENE MAGAZINE

(Portland, ME) The Maine Museum of Photographic Arts (MMPA) will show artworks from the collection of Paula Tognarelli.

There will be an opening reception on Friday, April 5 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm with music by Ry’s Trio. In addition, there will be collectors talks on Friday, April 19 and Friday, May 17 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. The exhibition runs through May 25, 2024.

“Personal art collections are always a form of self portraiture and our new exhibition, The Paula Tognarelli collection is no exception,” says Denise Froehlich, Director of MMPA. “It’s prodigious; about wonder, wit, moments, connections to individual artists, and they all have a romantic perspective or in context, the romanticism of the collector shines through. The images also speak about the process of making art and the breadth or modes of expression in contemporary photography.

The viewer will notice that there is an optimism throughout the compilation that makes spending time with these photographs delightful. It speaks to Tognarelli’s heart and eye.

We appreciate the opportunity to share our investigations into collectors and collections with you.”
