Barbara Kramer Gallery

Once A Pair

An exhibit of photographs by Judy Stein


Judy Stein has lived in Belfast since 1994, where she has been active in range of city affairs and the Hutchinson Center; she served on the Board of the Camden Conference and currently is on the board of the Mid-coast Forum on Foreign Relations. Ms. Stein spent that last 20 years of her professional career as a principal in the management consulting firm Strategic Communications, working with executives to develop and deliver logical, persuasive arguments.

Describing  her exploration into photography Judy states,  “I lived in a world of words—precise and concise messages.  I began this project by writing, but I found I could not convey the depth and breadth of the emotions involved in a changed life with words. I turned to the camera and discovered a very different kind of exploration.”



About the Gallery:

The Barbara Kramer Gallery at the Belfast Free Library, located on the ground floor, was named in memory of Barbara Kramer who was an ardent supporter of the visual arts in the Midcoast area in the 1980s until her death in 1998. When the library was undergoing a significant expansion in the late 1990s, a group of area residents with the encouragement of the Library Board of Trustees raised funds to create this special exhibition space where art and or other materials relating to the history of the library or Belfast can be displayed.
