The Pace Galleries of Art presents the exhibition opening reception
for Roger C. Williams, Artist and Adman of Lovell, Maine on Friday, May 3rd from 4:00-7:00 pm at the Leura Hill Eastman Performing Arts Center: Admission is free.

Over a lifetime of combining fine art and advertising, Roger Williams presents his artistic visions of Maine, New Mexico and advertising ephemera to the Western Maine community. A mixture of Oil Paintings, Watercolors and prints captures his unique interpretation of various landscapes, animals and portraiture. From an over sixty year career in advertising, as an art director at McCann- Erickson in Pittsburgh to his own agency in Portland, Maine for 23 years, Roger worked on such varied accounts as Westinghouse, Osram Sylvania, Sunday River Ski Resort and Hussey Seating.

There will be a concurrent exhibit at the Helen and Harry Nadler Student Gallery across the lobby from Pace. This is a collection of specially selected works from the 2023/2024 FA Visual Arts Programs highlighting a range of assignments, styles and abilities from students of all grades and abilities.

About Stephen & Palmina Pace

Stephen Pace, an acclaimed artist, had an impressive art education, studying in Indiana, Mexico, New York City, Paris, and Florence. His experience in World War II, coupled with his passion for art, led him to become a professor at American University in Washington, DC, where he honed his skills and retired in 1983.

Palmina Pace, his wife, played a vital role in managing her husband's career, enabling him to focus solely on his passion. We are forever grateful to the Paces for their generous gift, which has enabled the Academy to showcase such incredible talent at the Pace Galleries. Even after his passing, Stephen's legacy lives on as his wife, Palmina, continues to reside in their home in New Harmony, IN.


Artistic Enrichment Through Professional & Student-Inspired Art

Fryeburg Academy's professional curated Pace Galleries and Nadler Student Gallery are an integral part of the school's arts program.

The Pace Galleries, curated by professional artists and designers, feature rotating exhibits throughout the year, showcasing a wide range of contemporary art in various media. The Nadler Gallery, on the other hand, is entirely student-run and provides an opportunity for young artists to display their work in a professional setting. Both galleries offer a unique and enriching experience for students and the community, fostering a love and appreciation for the arts.

Stop by and visit us!

Following the opening reception, the exhibition will be open for viewing on Tuesdays from 10am - 1pm and Thursdays from 1pm - 4pm when Fryeburg Academy is in session. We welcome you at other times by appointment. Please email, or call 207-544-9066 to schedule a visit at another time.
