A number of the galleries in Kennebunkport showed photographic prints called Kinetics by Stephen Maka. These reminded me of the famous Israeli Artist, Yaakov Agam, who is best known for his optical and kinetic art. From one side, there is one image, and as you move to the other side, you see an entirely different image. Below is an example of 2 of his pieces (an image of boats on the left and buoys on the right). A different angle of the same artwork is shown below.
When visiting Maine, I recommend picking up a copy of the Maine Gallery + Studio Guide, which advertises museums, galleries, and artists' studios by town. More information on the guide can be found at www.mainegalleryguide.com.
Another great place in Kennebunk is Maine Art Hill, located just steps away from Dock Square. Maine Art Hill represents over 30 artists and houses artists' studios, has art exhibits, pop-up shops, and more: A great place to explore original art, paintings, sculptures, prints, and photographs.
