The May showcase for the 400 Days exhibits features two locals, painter Donna Estep and photographer Ralph Corriveau, presenting comprehensive looks of their work.

Estep’s series of pop art she’s been creating the last few years, including portraits of pop-culture icons like Pee-wee Herman and Frankenstein’s monster, will be on display in the Promenade Gallery on the first floor of the building. The paintings offer a bold and bright color palette that complements the subject with charming aplomb.

For his photography series, Corriveau — who captures a diverse group of subjects using varied styles and mediums — will show the many forms he works in. Corriveau is well-known for his motorcycle magazine images, but is also regarded for his fine-art photography (rural and urban landscapes and documenting the work and lives of his fellow artists).

Both exhibits will hold opening receptions Friday evening and will be open to the public during Saturday’s 400 Farmers Market (11 a.m.-2 p.m.). Estep’s “Familiar Faces” will also be up during the May 23 Farmers Market.
