November 1, 2014 – January 31, 2015 : Mary T. Nelson
Photographs by Mary T. Nelson, 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 Also, don’t forget to stop by the library for a look at these colorful photos. The Windham Public Library is located at 217 Windham Center Road in Windham. For more information, library hours, or directions, please call the library at 892-1908.

From the artist:
I’ve been drawing and painting since I could hold a crayon and brush. I trained in Boston for a few years after high school at the School of Practical Art in Boston. In 2001 I received a bachelor of fine arts in art from University of Maine, Gorham. My senior show was at the Portland public library. I haven’t been in the gallery circuit since graduating. I’ve just been painting and selling my paintings while working full time. I retired in 2013 and am now devoting a lot of my time painting. My focus is water colors now but my concentration at U of M was in print making. I’ll be showing a few selected prints along with my water colors.
