Jackson Memorial Library in Tenants Harbor will open “To Paint the Way a Bird Sings: An Exhibition by Plein Air Painters of Maine” with an artists’ reception on Friday, April 7, from 6 to 8 p.m. The show, which continues through May 31, includes oils, watercolors and pastels by 20 members of Plein Air Painters of Maine (PAPME), including Kathy Baribeau, Geoff Bladon, Edward Buonvecchio, Ken Carlson, Carol Douglas, Livy Glaubitz, Corinne McIntyre, Leecia Price, Richard Smith, Sally Giddings Smith, Luise van Keuren and Peter Yesis. The library receives a 30 percent commission from the sale of artwork. Plein Air Painters of Maine (PAPME), which originated with four midcoast artists who met regularly to paint together outdoors, now includes some 500 members statewide. PAPME’s intent is to enable artists to meet and share painting experiences; there are no dues and all mediums are welcome. For more information, visit pleinairpaintersofmaine.blogspot.com
