May 1, 2015 – July 31, 2015 : Lindsey Flint
Artwork by Lindsey Flint of Mechanic Falls will be on exhibit at the Windham Public Library now through July 31st. The St. Joseph’s College student has been creating art since she was quite young, starting with drawing and painting. She now enjoys most of the traditional art forms: drawing, painting, photography, and sculpture. “I find it the easiest to draw or paint whatever’s on my mind. I find recreating photos or real life scenery sometimes frustrating, but I do use real life and photos for reference and study.” She went on to say that her favorite subjects are animals and fictional beings or settings. On display are a dozen original acrylic paintings of various subjects. Stop by the library to see these colorful pieces.
February 1, 2015 – April 30, 2015 : Robert Atterbury
Paintings by Robert Atterbury of Windham are currently on exhibit at the Windham Public Library. Robert began his lifelong love of art in the military, producing posters for the hospital as well as illustrations for United States Air Force Intelligence assignments. After studying art design with international artist John Ferren, he expanded his artistic skills by regularly creating cartoons for local newspapers and educational publications. Although Robert made his career in education, he found ways to incorporate his skills as an artist into his work– including art/visual aid constructions in East Africa. The artwork that he has displayed at the library show his interest in “rustic life patterns, far from the urban high activity… which flavor the lives of many who are enamored of peace, quiet.”
November 1, 2014 – January 31, 2015 : Mary T. Weston
Photographs by Mary T. Weston, local artist from the Presumpscot River Studios, are on display at the Windham Public Library now through January 31st. Mary lives on the Presumpscot River in Windham and focuses much of her photography and other artwork on the nature around her home. “I’ve moved to a small house with a studio beside the Presumpscot… I’ve downsized my possessions and my psyche. I want less clutter, less mental noise, more solitude. Maybe all I need now are the people I love, and the nature right outside my back door.” For more information about Mary and samples of her work, go to www.presumpscotriverstudios.com
