PORTLAND — On Friday, June 4 from 5-8 p.m., the Kneeling Art Photography Project (thekneelingartphotography.com), under the direction of Portland artist Titi de Baccarat, opens their first exhibit at the gallery space at 525 Danforth Street. This community social justice/art project explores the meaning and evolution of the Take-A-Knee gesture by having Maine photographers turn their cameras on diverse Mainers who express why they are kneeling. There are 10 photographers taking part in the exhibit from seasoned professionals to people new to the craft. The opening reception will feature music from renowned keyboardist Jamie Saft and Indo-Jazz percussionist Brian Shankar Adler; dance from The Love Factory and possibly a food truck . As there is no large parking lot, visitors are encouraged to park on Valley Street and walk 2-3 minutes to Danforth.
The gallery space will be open on the following Thursday, Friday and Saturdays from 3
