Opening on October 14th: Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town” at Meetinghouse Arts in Freeport

It is “Awesome October”, a month of art and theater in Midcoast Maine. Our production of “Our Town” will open at Meetinghouse Arts on the 14th. “Our Town” is a true community affair with the cast of local folks, young and old, assembled by our talented director Nat Warren-White. For my part I play Julia Gibbs, wife of the small town doctor Frank “Doc”Gibbs. While “Our Town” is set in 1901, the play’s universal themes continue to resonate with contemporary life and issues.

Tickets for all performances can be purchased here:

Awesome Member’s Show at Maine Art Gallery in Wiscasset

I am delighted to be showing two paintings in the Member’s Show at the Maine Art Gallery in Wiscasset. In these paintings I am exploring ways to translate the essence of the natural world into imagery. And my deep dive into the world of Georgia O’Keeffe may have also played a role.
