Searsmont library shows art by late artist Woolf

Jan 16, 2020
"Mountain Man" by Elinor Woolf.

Searsmont — Selected works of the late artist Elinor Woolf are now on display at the Searsmont Town Library through the month of February. This art is on loan from Searsmont resident JoAnn Robbins, who is a board member of the library. Some pieces will be for sale to benefit the STL. There will be an opening reception at the library on Friday, Jan. 24, from 5 to 6 p.m.

Woolf was a New York City art teacher and a prolific artist whose body of work includes many portraits painted from photos of her travels around the world. She painted landscapes of Central Park, her vacations in Midcoast Maine and other beautiful places, as well as everyday scenes, and still lifes of flowers, vases and other ordinary objects. Her work is mostly oils, but she also painted numerous watercolors, studies of future paintings, drawings, and other artwork.

After retiring as an art teacher, she focused mainly on her own work, studying at The Students Art League, working until she was in her 80s. Her family held a celebration of her life by showing all her work and giving it to friends and family, asking for donations for “Seeds of the League," a children's art program.
