Reception and Opening Remarks
6:00 – 7:30 p.m. Bowdoin College Museum of Art


This comprehensive exhibition features over 100 works in a variety of media including photography, video, painting, and drawing—all of which were produced in or inspired by the state of Maine. Taken together, this body of work attests to Wegman’s rigorous and sustained engagement with the natural world and places the artist squarely within the American landscape tradition.

“William Wegman: Hello Nature is the first exhibition to emphasize the connection to nature that runs through Wegman’s lengthy career—not just in his famed photographs of his Weimaraner dogs but across a wide range of media,” said the exhibition’s co-curator Kevin Salatino. The exhibition brings critical focus to this often-overlooked aspect of Wegman’s oeuvre, highlighting the artist’s ongoing exploration of nature’s place in the cultural imagination.”
