Artwork from the Lebanon Art Group will be on display at the library through the months of November and December.
“The Group” is a group of friends that gather every Tuesday morning at the home of Edward and Elaine Baker in Lebanon, Maine to enjoy time together creating works of art by many mediums: watercolor, acrylics, pen and ink, colored pencil, oils, wood lathe, colored inks, and pastels. They offer advice and critique to each other for encouragement.
Group members are Judith Batchelder, Andrea Monaco, Lana Clough, Elaine Baker, Kathy Paradis, and Ed Baker. Peggy Furbush and Carol Namie are honorary members who are unable to join the weekly gathering because of illness and age.
Most of members were art students of Sally Powell, an artist that lived in Lebanon, Maine, until she moved to Massachusetts because of aging. She will be 100 years old in November 2022. Not one Tuesday goes by that her advice is not mentioned. She was an inspiration and mentor to everyone in the group. A Sally Powell watercolor is featured in the collection on display at the library.
Stop by anytime during library hours to check out the display!
