After the Rain

Just Before Dawn

Artwork by Barbara Applegate on display for the month of February.

Barbara's brilliant colors and geometric shapes are her newest visual language for capturing the rocky Maine coast and fishing villages. She places one color over another until the sky is radiant and the water shimmers and then she adds the backlit fishing shacks, islands, and rocky ledges. This technique pushes her to create outside her traditional art training. Most important, it is participation art, encouraging the viewer to bring their own impression of the Maine landscape to the painting.

Story times on Friday mornings at 10:30AM.
