Artist Kathleen Fox will show her local watercolor paintings of fishermen, lobster boats and scenes of the St. George Peninsula and Downeast Friday through Sunday, Aug. 23 through 25, at the Ocean View Grange, Route 131 between Tenants Harbor and Port Clyde.

Fox has been showing her watercolors of Maine scenes since the late 1970s, when she was a member of Port Clyde Art and Crafts. She produces an annual calendar of Maine fishing and lobster boats that is sold throughout Maine by the publisher, Maine Authors Publishing of Rockland. Recent paintings from Fundy Bay will be included in the show.

Fox is the author of three award-winning books, which will be available at the show. “Beowulf of Maine,” a children’s book starring Fox’s Newfoundland dog, is currently featured as one of 14 books invited to the “Tell Me a Story: About Maine” show of book illustrations at the Atrium Art Gallery of the University of Southern Maine’s Lewiston-Auburn College, through Nov. 23. Two original illustrations from the book will be shown at the grange.
