Maine Antiques Dealers Association Annual Meeting

Oct 06, 2016

Our Annual Meeting will be October 6th at The Taste of Maine on Rt 1 in Woolwich. The day will start with a social hour from 11:30 to 12:30, lunch at 12:30 followed by our guest speaker. The day will conclude with our actual annual meeting and election of a slate of officers and board members . Menu choices and reservation information will be sent out shortly.

We are most fortunate to have Julia Gray from the Abbe museum in Bar Harbor as our featured speaker. Her talk will be on "Collecting Art and Material Culture”. Gray will talk about the history of collecting Wabanaki material, what to look for if you are interested in collecting, how to care for your Wabanaki material, and some highlights of contemporary Wabanaki art. Gray’s talk and the luncheon will be open to any interested members of the public. Please call 800-641-6908 or email edesimone@goosefareantiques for details.

Julia Gray is the Director of Collections and Interpretation at the Abbe Museum in Bar Harbor. Her responsibilities include the care of the museum's collections, exhibit development, and management of the museum's interpretive programs and staff. One of her first tasks at the Abbe was to move their collections from the original 1928 building to the new museum, which opened in 2001. She has a B.A. in anthropology from Bowdoin College and a M.A. in anthropology from the University of Arkansas, with course work in museum studies. Julia is the author of the chapter on collections management policies in the Small Museum Toolkit, a six book series, published by Altamira Press in 2011. Before coming to the Abbe, she worked for ten years doing cultural resource management archaeology in Maine. In her spare time, Julia is assistant chief of the Orland Volunteer Fire Department.
