Blue Hill Public Library

Thanks to generous support from Friends of the Library, local artist Margret Baldwin will host a screening of the 2016 film, Maudie, on Thursday, April 25th at 6:30 PM. The fourth in a series of six art history film screenings at the Blue Hill Public Library, it will be followed by an optional hands-on workshop Saturday, April 27th at 4:00 PM, where participants will be guided in “Painting Beauty Nevertheless.” The film screening is free and open to all, but registration for the workshop will only be for those at the film screening.

The film, directed by Aisling Walsh, chronicles the life of Maud Lewis, an arthritic Nova Scotian woman who works as a housekeeper while she hones her skills as an artist and eventually becomes a beloved figure in her community. Interesting side note: due to a generous donation, the library owns two Maud Lewis paintings!

Margret is a certified art instructor with 25 years in the public school system and private teaching experience. She expanded her exposure to art and artists through her curatorial experience during eight years of employment at the Blue Hill Public Library. She has exhibited widely, and in the summer runs her neighborhood “Little Gallery” in Surry.

This program is sponsored by the library and everyone is welcome. For more information, contact Hannah at or 374-5515.
