Nancy Glassman of Searsmont has lent the Mildred Stevens Williams Memorial Library several of her paintings to be on display for the enjoyment of library patrons.

Glassman’s watercolors and oils explore effects of light and the nuanced colors of seasonal change. In landscape or still life subjects, she looks for shapes, patterns and rhythms to carry the viewer through complicated scenes. She has had solo shows at Rockland’s Caldbeck Gallery, where she is represented, the Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Rockport, the Maine State House in Augusta and the libraries in Belfast, Portland and Searsmont; and has been in group shows throughout Maine and out of state.

She received the Harlow Gallery’s First Place award in 2009. In 2011, her work was included in the Die Sao Paolo Biennale, in Dusseldorf, Germany. Glassman has taught art for more than 40 years, including 25 years at the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland.

The library, 2916 Sennebec Road, is open to all Tuesdays from noon to 5 p.m.; Wednesdays from 3 to 6 p.m.; Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m.; and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information, call 785-5656 or visit
