Bristol Area Library

Oyster Farmers' Commute

Artwork by Sarah L. Fisher on display for the month of May.

Sarah originally painted only in watercolor, loving its unexpected effects and its lyrical, playful, potential. In the last 5 years she has also returned to painting in oil and has enjoyed the re-working and abstraction it has allowed her. She paints the beauties of the coastal Maine landscape and of local scenes but more recently had added the exploration of abstracting shapes of local architecture, boats and works to translate their volumes to the two-dimentsional plane, during the Covid period developing a "wonky", crooked depiction of local scenes which she continues to occasionally play with.

The library will be closed Monday, May 27th for Memorial Day.
