Alison Dibble painting entitled "Checking email"

BLUE HILL – Local artist Alison C. Dibble will give “Gallery Talks” about her art show currently on display in the Blue Hill Public Library’s Britton Gallery at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 28 .  Alison will offer a few stories about the paintings and talk about the process of painting. For the kids she will demonstrate some drawing techniques and kids can try some drawing with their own pencils and paper or use supplies provided by the Library.

The show, entitled, Paintings of Blue Hill Library and Other Maine Places, consists of about 30 oil paintings some of which feature scenes in and around the Blue Hill Library, and its patrons, volunteers and staff. Sales of Dibble’s art benefit the library.

Dibble’s background in art started in her childhood with her mother Barbara Coan, who is a painter, formerly of Stonington and Lamoine. She continues to draw and paint with her mother, whose paintings have won international awards. Her art training included a summer program at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts School and an art minor at Hartwick College. In addition to her mother, she has been greatly inspired by local artists Linda Funk, Dorothy Hayes, and Louise Bourne. Her illustrations appear in scientific journals and a recent book, Macrolichens of New England by James and Patricia Hinds.

The exhibit will be available during library hours for the month of September. For more information, call 374-5515.
