Since its debut in 1999, Photo A Go-Go has become one of southern Maine’s most-anticipated annual arts events – a memorable evening with live music, local drinks, eats and a space full of friends and amazing photography. The Bakery Photo Collective has hosted this annual silent auction once a year for over 18 years to support its facility, programs and celebrate the art of making photographs. The event features work from established and emerging photographers at incredible prices, and also gains the attention of many collectors, curators and galleries throughout Maine and beyond.

2019 Photo A Go-Go submission guidelines & information coming soon.
