The Stockton Springs Community Library, 6 Station St., is currently exhibiting artwork by Anne Spencer of Cape Jellison. Included in the exhibition are watercolor and ink drawings.

Spencer’s subjects are generally landscapes, seascapes and buildings in coastal Maine. This exhibit also includes paintings of Monhegan Island, Matinicus Island, Alaska, Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, Newfoundland, Labrador and Iceland.

Spencer has always been interested in line, color and composition. She earned a degree in Fine Arts from Wilson College, focusing on painting, graphics, art history and aesthetics. She completed graduate study and certification in Occupational Therapy at the University of Pennsylvania, and later achieved a master’s degree in liberal studies from the University of Maine at Orono with a focus on art history, theory and criticism.

A past member of the Maine Women in The Arts and current member of the Bangor Art Society, Spencer has exhibited in various galleries and exhibits in Bangor, Blue Hill, Rockland, Searsport, Bucksport, Unity, Camden, Belfast and Bar Harbor, as well as out of state. For several years, she has taught watercolor at adult education programs in Searsport and Bucksport.

Spencer’s exhibit will be up through Saturday, Aug. 15, date of SSCL’s second annual Pie and Art Festival. The artworks are for sale and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the library’s endowment fund. For more information and library hours, visit
