WASHINGTON —  Rachael Richmond of Jefferson is the featured artist in a watercolor show at the Gibbs Library, 40 Old Union Road. The show runs through November and December.

Richmond’s work is primarily representations of animals—lots of fish, shellfish, birds and farm animals, with an occasional landscape or boat. She does some commissions as well—again, mostly of animals. She wants her art to generate the viewers’ memories of things or places they have seen.

Richmond attended the University of Southern Maine where she studied art education; where, ironically, painting was her least favorite art form. She gets her inspiration from places where she spends time—including her hometown of Caribou in Aroostook County, her farm in Jefferson, and her parents’ home in Little Deer Isle on the coast of Maine. In addition to painting, she is a full-time teacher in Jefferson.
