Females dominate KahBang Arts gallery

BANGOR - The works of five talented women will be on display at this year's KahBang Arts spring gallery. The creations of Emma Sampson, Abbeth Russell, Lisa B. Martin, Stacy Howe, and Lori Leonard can all be viewed on the second floor at Zen Asian Bistro in downtown Bangor from now until April 7.

"We do two galleries a year and when we do them we have artists submit their work or we pick ones we like from online," explained Meg Shorette, executive director of KahBang Arts. "When we started going through the images we liked, I realized they were all done by women."

The featured artists in this year's event all reside somewhere in New England.
