During the month of September, the Thomas Memorial Library Gallery will feature a collection of original abstracts and commissioned pet portraits by Cape Elizabeth artist Christine Morgan. A graduate of UMass Dartmouth, with formal training in Fine Arts and Visual Arts, Christine believes “everyday life is a colorful palette, waiting to be expressed on canvas through expressionistic, bold brushstrokes.” Her paintings have been exhibited at a number of galleries in Maine, including the Lewis Gallery and Wing Spread Gallery in Portland and Southwest Harbor, Maine, respectively.

One of Christine’s favorite activities is going on beach walks in Cape Elizabeth at sunset with her husband and two, eight-month old miniature American Eskimo puppies. Of late, she has delighted in immortalizing her love of Maine’s beaches in abstract seascapes painted with oils on wood panel.

The exhibit can be seen from September 1 – September 30. A reception, open to the public, will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 25, 2014. Most works are for sale.
