October 2, 2017 - October 31, 2017
During the month of October, Surry artist Deb Belyea will exhibit oil, watercolor, and pastel landscape paintings at the Blue Hill Public Library in a show titled Here and There: A Collection of Paintings. Many of the pieces are of local landscapes with a few that reflect her time in the U. K., Ireland and Europe. The public is invited to an opening reception on Friday October 6th, 4:30 to 6:00 PM.
Belyea has recently retired and has returned to her own studio work, after being an art teacher and principal in Down East Maine for more than thirty years. Her teaching included working with students ranging from four year olds to adults. She has helped to build enrichment programs to supplement public school curriculum and sees the arts as important to helping students learn, see and experience the world in different ways.
Deb Belyea studied art education at the University of Southern Maine, and also has studied with individual artists in New England and the U.K. She is currently illustrating a children’s book.
The show will be in the library’s Britton Gallery and Roland Howard Room, available for viewing during library hours subject to the Howard Room schedule. For more information contact the library at 374-5515.
