Back by popular demand, local artist and gallery-owner Margret Baldwin will reprise a series of five art history film screenings at the Blue Hill Public Library, each paired with an optional, related hands-on workshop the next evening. The film screenings are Friday nights at 7:00 PM, on July 6th & 27th, August 10th & 24th, and September 7th. The related workshops are on each subsequent Saturday at 5:00 PM.

These events are free and open to all, but space in the hands-on art workshops is limited. Registration for the art workshops will be taken at the film screening the previous night, and is limited to those who attend the films.
These events are sponsored by the library and supported by a grant from the Maine Humanities Council & the Maine Arts Commission, as well as the Friends of the Library.
The complete schedule is as follows: July 6: Cave of Forgotten Dreams, paired with a cave painting art project on July 7; July 27: Michelangelo: Love and Death, followed by a subtractive sculpture art project on July 28; August 10: Mr. Turner, followed by an atmospheric painting art project on August 11; August 24: Loving Vincent, with a brushstrokes art project on August 25; September 7: Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child will cap off the series with a graffiti art project on September 8.

Margret is a certified art instructor with 25 years in the public school system and private teaching experience. She expanded her exposure to art and artists through her curatorial experience during eight years of employment at the Blue Hill Public Library. She has exhibited widely and in the summer runs her neighborhood “Little Gallery” in Surry.
