‘Blackout in the Blue Room’ by Tim Greenway will be part of a new art exhibition at the University of New England’s Biddeford campus. SUBMITTED PHOTO

BIDDEFORD — The Art Gallery at the Ketchum Library on the Biddeford Campus of the University of New England is presenting “Mackworth Island Transformed — Rocks Reimagined.”

The exhibition features the photography of Tim Greenway, a local professional and commercial photographer, who also serves as an adjunct professor at the University of New England where he teaches digital photography within the Department of Creative and Fine Arts.

An opening reception will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7 at the gallery.

“Mackworth Island Transformed — Rocks Reimagined” explores the transformation of space within the context of both the physical and the psychological. Using the popular location of the rock formations near the pier on Mackworth Island in Falmouth as subject matter, Greenway’s photographs visualize imaginative landscapes by detailing the geology of this iconic Maine island.

By focusing on the micro-ecology, and by transforming the familiar coastline into an abstraction of color, texture, pattern, and form, Greenway’s photographs reimagine a recognizable setting. The photographs thus transform the overarching space into detailed and abstracted images that reflect personal exploration as an escape from literal reality.

This exhibition will be on display in the UNE Biddeford Campus Ketchum Library Art Gallery from Monday, Jan. 14 to April 15.

The Art Gallery in the Ketchum Library is free and open to the public, when school is in session, every day from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
