Thomaston — The second exhibition of artwork has been mounted on the lobby Art Wall of the Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County, Buttermilk Lane. Featuring the whimsical work of artist Gil Coyle, it will be on display until the middle of August.

Coyle has teaching and arts degrees from Denver University and has attended classes at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, New York University, and the Arts Student League of New York. She has received numerous awards, and her work is included in the permanent collection of the Farnsworth Art Museum, as well as in many private and corporate collections in the United States and abroad.

The shelter is open Mondays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. A portion of the proceeds from any art sold goes toward supporting the shelter. Those interested in possibly having a show of their work are encouraged to leave name and contact information with a staff member; a representative of PMHS will be in touch.

The Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County was founded in 1989 to provide care, protection and loving homes for abandoned and homeless companion animals in the Midcoast area. The society supports activities advocating responsible pet ownership and the prevention of abuse and cruelty; and it sponsors events and activities that promote the health and welfare of animals and demonstrate the benefits of the human-animal bond.

The Humane Society of Knox County provides animal support services to the communities of Rockland, Thomaston, Warren, Owls Head, St. George, Port Clyde, Martinsville, Tenants Harbor, South Thomaston, Spruce Head, Union, Appleton, Cushing, Matinicus, North Haven, Vinalhaven, Stockton Springs, Thorndike and Morrill.
