PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — The Mark and Emily Turner Library will host a multimedia exhibit on China featuring the photos of a nearly Isle resident.

Lewis Sandler will exhibit photographs and artworks, collected over his 30 years in China, at the library’s Akeley Gallery from November 4 to December 30.

The library will hold an opening reception from 4 to 6 p.m. on Friday, November 4.

What makes this exhibit unique is that it focuses solely on China and will include abstract, traditional, classic and modern photos with a dash of pop art, Sandler said. Chinese music, videos, a puzzle to be won and a special drawing activity for children will also be on the agenda.

Sandler received a BS from Nasson College in Sanford and a JD degree. Originally from Massachusetts. He has spent nearly 30 years working and living in Beijing, teaching as an undergraduate and doctoral teacher at a prestigious science and technology university. He has taught English Literature, Creative Writing, Legal English, English Debating and a Photographic Design course.

Sandler wrote the “Beyond Science” textbook.

“[I] I now live on Almost Isle in a beautifully quiet, semi-secluded log cabin and spend my free time taking and creating photographs of interesting subjects,” Sandler said.

He returned to the United States in 2019 with thousands of photos of Beijing and other places of interest in China and Asia.
