Local artist Nancy Baker has installed a new exhibit at the Thomaston Public Library as part of the library’s ongoing Community Displays Program. The program, made possible by a grant from the Davis Family Foundation, makes space available in the library for local artists to display their work.

Baker, a resident of Thomaston, paints landscapes in the plein air tradition, studio work and still life painting. Her work is strongly influenced by nature and is influenced by 20th- century impressionism. She has painted and studied throughout the United States and has been teaching art classes to children for many years. Her work has been exhibited in Virginia, Maryland and Maine.

Baker’s display will be in the library through the fourth of July holiday and can be viewed on the lower level of the library. For more information on Baker and her artwork, visit her website at nancytbaker.com. To learn more about the Community Displays program, visit thomaston.lib.me.us.
