Kennebunkport Post - "Artist brings Warhol influence to Maine"


By Suzanne Hodgson Staff Writer

CBGB’s, a well-known punk club, may have closed four years ago in New York City, but Kymara Leechi Lonergan has a new place for the art and music of alternative media to thrive: southern Maine. Leechi Lonergan has scheduled a “happening” – a constantly changing mix of visual art and music – at North Dam Mill in Biddeford and a “museum” at her bed and breakfast, Dock Square Inn and Antiques in Kennebunkport. On Saturday evening, Leechi Lonergan will host the happening at the mill, which is open to the public. The show will include artwork by Billy Name, Jayne County, Detroit Punk Scene and local artist Alex Kaminsky, along with live performances by Jayne County and the War Hols and others.
