May 1, 2013 – July 31, 2013 : Brenda McGuinness
Artwork by Brenda McGuinness is currently on exhibit at the Windham Public Library. Brenda McGuinness was born in Ireland and currently resides in Sebago, Maine with her husband and daughter. Having always had a passion for illustration, she founded ‘ealainART in 2003, painting murals and later produced a range of hand painted t-shirts and vests. Since then, her collection has grown to include drawings, paintings and a series of language learning books available in Irish, Spanish and English.
The greater part of her work is child centered, in particular the animal storyboards in both sepia and soft color. They show animal adventures, with a humorous twist! These characters are brought to life with the use of acrylic and pencil. They show a less serious side to life, a side that’s mischievous and playful.
Brenda continues to design new collections annually. She enjoys creating special personalized pieces for her customers to commission. Brenda’s work has been exhibited regularly in Ireland since 2003 and has shows planned in Portland and Windham for 2013.
Her work can be found in private collections worldwide. Please see more about her at www.ealainart.com Brenda’s work will be on display at the library through July 31st. For more information, library hours, or directions, please call the library at 892-1908.

November 1, 2012 – January 31, 2013 : Liz Wisecup
New oil paintings by Windham resident, Liz Wisecup, are on display at the Windham Public Library from November 1st through January 31st. An Adult Education class 6 years ago with artist, Pat Riley, sparked Liz’s interest in learning how to paint. The current exhibit shows varied subjects which she practices to improve her skills. They include a cowboy, old houses in Windham, still life, and landscapes. One of the houses on display is the back of Gertrude Strout’s home, which used to stand next-door to the library and was torn down last year by the school department. As a novice painter, she hopes that her paintings will inspire others to give it a try. Stop by the library to see this exhibit.
