Norton sails into spring at bank

Mar 15, 2013
Peter Palermo Bangor Savings Bank in Camden is hosting an informal display of 21 paintings by Camden artist Linda Norton.

Camden — Those itching to get back on the water or just put the snow and cold weather behind them are encouraged to stop by the Camden branch of Bangor Savings Bank. Local artists Linda Norton has loaned 21 original works that will be displayed until May 1 all over the branch, located just off Route 1 in the Hannaford plaza.

The works include 10 pieces that have never been shown publically before; and many that have been won juried competitions throughout the country, from the Lyme Art Association in Connecticut and the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club in New York to the Coos Art Museum in Coos Bay, Ore.

The Camden Branch of Bangor Savings Bank is open Mondays through Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Norton, who welcomes visitors to visit her studio at 109 Bay View St. by chance or appointment, has dedicated much of her life here to documenting the living history of windjammers in Maine and her maternal family’s involvement in Maine’s maritime life. Her primary subjects of interest are windjammers, the working waterfront, boat building and local crews and their personalities.

For more information, call 230-0129 or visit Her work also can be viewed at the Ducktrap Bay Trading Company, 20 Main St.
