OGUNQUIT, Maine—Partners Bank is pleased to announce its sponsorship of an exhibition at the Ogunquit Museum of American Art (OMAA) during the museum’s 2020 season. The Bank’s pledge of $10,000 funds the exhibition Light Southerly: Henry Strater in Verde Valley, which has been on view since July 1 and continues through October 31, 2020.
Established in 1953, the OMAA houses a permanent collection of paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints and photographs from the late 1800s to the present. It is the only museum in Maine devoted exclusively to the exhibition, preservation and interpretation of American art.
“We’re very pleased to have generous support from Partners Bank for Light Southerly,” says OMAA Executive Director Amanda Lahikainen, who joined the museum in May. “It’s community partnerships like this that allow us to bring exhibitions by important modern and contemporary American artists to audiences in southern Maine and beyond.”
In gratitude for the dedicated service provided by the late Brenda Keene, Senior VP at the Bank, the exhibit’s signage reads: “Sponsored by Partners Bank in the memory of Brenda Keene.”
“With its lengthy history of showcasing cultural gems in American art, the Ogunquit Museum of American Art provides an invaluable service to Maine communities” says Partners Bank President & CEO Blaine Boudreau. “We are honored to support the museum’s mission of fostering cultural enrichment—and extremely pleased that we can do so in a way that recognizes Brenda for her strong ties to the area and her contributions as a member of the Bank’s family.”
