November 1, 2017 - November 30, 2017
During the month of November, Surry artist Margret Baldwin will exhibit landscape paintings at the Blue Hill Public Library in a show titled The Willing Brush with an opening reception on Friday, November 10, 5:00-6:30PM.
This exhibit includes pieces from decades of Baldwin’s work: oil paintings, watercolors, figures, portraits, iconic landscapes, and some of the many paintings she created for Surry Opera’s productions. Also included are illustrations she has done for two books she has written that relate to her childhood in post- war Germany.
Margret Baldwin was born in Germany and received her early schooling in Hamburg and in London. She attended The Corcoran School of Art, George Washington University and the Montessori Institute in Washington D.C. She received her Degree in Art Education from the University of Maine at Orono. After teaching art full time for twenty years at the Blue Hill Consolidated School, Margret retired to have time to commit her energies to exploring the visual mysteries and complexities of the world she finds herself in. Baldwin is a former BHPL staff member and currently runs the Little Gallery in Surry, ME.
The show will be in the library’s Britton Gallery and Roland Howard Room starting November 6th, available for viewing during library hours subject to the Howard Room schedule. For more information contact the library at 374-5515.
