Aug. 24, 2011 - PRLog -- LEWISTON, Maine – Androscoggin Bank invites the community to join the Bank in supporting its fourth exhibit for Art Walk Lewiston Auburn. The Art Walk, which transforms the downtown areas of Lewiston and Auburn into arts districts for one evening each month, is an independent grassroots endeavor by community members, artists, and local businesses who want to celebrate the extraordinary talent of visual artists in Lewiston, Auburn and around Maine. Each of the exhibits hosted by Androscoggin Bank thus far have been extremely well-attended, with hundreds of members of the community visiting the Bank to admire the artwork on display.

The fourth exhibit, “Discovering Prints,” will feature nationally and internationally acclaimed artists Leonard Baskin, Alison Hildreth, Haku Maki and Hideaki Kato, among others.

The show will include various types of art prints including serigraphs, etchings, engravings, and woodblock prints and will serve as an introduction to print-making, with wall panels along-side the artwork explaining the basics of each printing technique. The “Discovering Prints” showing will segue into an exhibit opening on September 16 at L/A Arts’ Gallery 5 titled "Do You Want to See My Etchings?" that will feature prints created by local Maine artists.

“Discovering Prints” will be on display in the lobby of Androscoggin Bank’s Lewiston branch from August 25 to September 27, 2011. A public reception to launch the new exhibit will take place from 5:00 pm to 8:30 pm on Friday, August 26.

“Lewiston, Auburn and many other Maine communities have demonstrated great interest in and support for the Art Walk exhibits,” said Christine Conrad, chief customer officer at Androscoggin Bank. “The turnout has been consistently impressive and we have been excited to lend our Lewiston branch location to host this incredible community event.”
