BLUE HILL – There will be an opening reception for the exhibit, Life In The Margins, a series of black and white photographic works byÂ the Blue Hill artist FranĂ§oise Gervaisa at 6p.m. Thursday, June 9, in the Blue Hill Public Libraryâ€™s Britton Gallery. Followed by a presentation by author Pat La Marche on her book Left Out In America: The State of Homelessness in the United States.
This exhibit is part of a new project, also titled Life In the Margins, through which the Library is dedicating the month of June 2011 to help raise awareness of the people in our communities who are struggling to get by, who live their lives in the margins of society. These are people living in Blue Hill, Ellsworth, and other surrounding towns who donâ€™t always have enough food to eatâ€”or a safe place to stay. They live day-to-day, on the edge, in the margins of life. And they are often overlookedâ€”or worse, not seen at all.
For more information, call the Library at 374-5515.
