Cally Peaco’s newly-installed photography show at First Federal Savings & Loan

First Federal Savings Bank, in conjunction with Boothbay Region Art Foundation, is pleased to be hosting a new exhibit of Cally Peaco’s photography at their Townsend Avenue location in Boothbay Harbor.

Cally began her career in the field of photography starting with a Brownie camera, progressing to 35 mm and now using digital equipment. She prefers the impact of black and white images, but still experiments with what she calls “surprises in color.”

Growing up on a dairy farm in Western Maine, Cally documented traditions of rural life that included milking the cows, butter-making, harness-racing and prize-winning contestants from county fairs, among other memorable themes.

As a seasoned photographer, Cally specializes in subjects of life’s ordinary moments and strives to capture those daily encounters that reveal magic- found everywhere- if you look for it. Clouds, a rainy window, water’s reflections, shadow-patterns and sunlit petals are but a few of nature’s viewpoints just waiting to be caught by the camera’s eye.

Cally is a member and exhibiting artist at Boothbay Region Art Foundation and River Arts Gallery in Damariscotta. She has shown her work at various galleries, festivals and fairs in Midcoast and Western Maine.
