The Windham Public Library hosts local artists 4 times a year. For more information about displaying your artwork, please contact Sally Bannen at the Library.
August 1, 2016 – October 31, 2016 : Liz Wisecup
Oil paintings by Windham resident, Liz Wisecup, are on display at the Windham Public Library
through October 31st. A variety of subjects are on show with an emphasis on early Windham scenes which include the mill a Mallison Falls, Morrell’s Livery Stable, and the late Peris Harding Hall’s house. Liz has been painting for nine years after taking an adult education class with Pat Riley. Liz– a behavioral health RN at St. Mary’s Hospital in Lewiston– gets great enjoyment from this hobby and encourages everyone to try their hand at painting– not for the outcome of the painting but for the relaxation which comes through the process. Stop by the library to see this
exhibit. For more information, library hours, or directions, please call the library at 892-1908.

November 1, 2015 – January 30, 2016 : Gwen Schaiberger
Over a dozen of Gwen’s vibrant paintings of flowers, landscapes and abstracts adorn the library walls. Gwen Schaiberger graduated in 1970 with a degree in Fine Arts. After college, she continued her education, working in ceramics and teaching drawing and pottery. Although she dedicated most of her time to developing her pottery business, she painted as well. Gwen developed a style that focuses on color, light, and texture which is evident in the pieces currently on display at the library. “I enjoy the challenge of expressing a mood or feeling by merging color, texture, and form.”
