Nov 04, 2012
Hank Aho’s “doodles” sometimes become greeting cards.

Washington — Hank Aho's "Toons and Other Art Forms" will go on exhibit Thursday, Nov. 8 at Gibbs Library and continue through Jan. 9. The public is incited to an opening reception Friday, Nov. 9 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the library, 40 Old Union Road.

Toons and Other Art Forms" includes watercolors, illustrations and line drawings. Aho was raised in Union and has lived in Washington since 1980. He is retired from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection and keeps busy with attempts at golf, juggling home projects, family and “advanced” doodling.

“My background in art is doodling. I have this urge to fill the margins of any paper I may have in front of me with doodles. I find it to be an excellent spawning ground for ideas and creations,” he said. “Projects often start with a doodle; don’t underestimate the power of doodling!”

For more information, call the library at 845-2663.
