SPRUCE HEAD — On Sunday, Oct. 2, writer and photographer Angela Waldron will present a talk on growing up in the village of Spruce Head and the powerful influences that cultivated her love for travel and the arts. Scheduled for 3 p.m., her presentation will take place at the Community Hall, 30 Village Road, Spruce Head.

Waldron is an award-winning writer and photographer whose love of adventure has taken her across the United States, Europe, and Asia. After attending the University of Maine, she spent four years in Turkey documenting traditional occupations and studying Islamic mysticism. Her adventures, accompanied by her photographs, have been featured in publications such as Down East, Kindred Spirit, Knives Illustrated, Pipes and Tobacco, and Renaissance.

Waldron has been with the Farnsworth Art Museum since 1998. Currently the museum’s registrar, she manages the collection of 15,000 objects, two historic sites, and the library. She also supervises much of the museum’s curatorial activity: exhibition planning, coordination, installation, and logistics, including couriering artwork on loan nationally and internationally.

In addition to her registrar duties, she has curated numerous exhibitions and written the catalogues for “George Tice/Andrew Wyeth: Parallel Visions” (2021) and “Transforming the Ordinary: Women in American Book Cover Design” (2020). In addition, she co-authored the Farnsworth’s recent book “Maine and American Art at the Farnsworth.”

Waldron graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Maine with a BA in Anthropology and an Interdisciplinary Concentration in the Classics. She resides in Union with her husband, Jim, and is currently writing a book based on her research.
