The Gibbs Library, 40 Old Union Road, will open a photographic exhibit by Suzanne Theodora White Thursday, May 8. Selected photographs from White’s “Things That Will Go Away” and “Gravel Pits” series will be displayed through July 8 in the show she is dedicating to the memory of Liane Chapman.

White’s work has been displayed in numerous private and public collections around in the United States and Europe. Several of her paintings have been used by Absolut Vodka in its advertising. She trained in painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.  Grants awarded to her by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, allowed her to travel extensively.  Her travels included an 18-month tour from Montreal to South Korea.

White’s family roots are firmly planted in Maine. Since 1991, she has made Appleton her home, where she farms, paints, photographs and trains dogs.

Gibbs Library is open Mondays from 4 to 7 p.m.; Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to noon and 4 to 7 p.m.; Thursdays from 3 to 6 p.m.; Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and Sundays from 2 to 5 p.m. For more information, call 845-2663.
