PhoPa Gallery & Maine Media, at 132 Washington Ave. in Portland, will open “Between Earth and Orion” featuring work by Jeannie Hutchins on March 7.

The exhibition will be on view through April 23. There will be an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. March 8 and an artist talk at 3 p.m. April 15.

According to the gallery, Hutchins’ work extends beyond the traditional realm of photography.

She prints on silk and experiments with cyanotype and gum bichromate processes to create a visual world layered with mystery and psychological exploration.

In a press release, Hutchins says, “This exhibition space is a psychological visual narrative about our experiences when confronting questions that have no answers. Placed in the metaphorical context of trying to understand our physical and temporal place in the universe perhaps will give insight into why we are here.”

Her silk installations, gum bichromate prints and other photographic work have been shown in numerous juried exhibitions.
