Blue Hill Public Library


Thanks to funding from the Friends of the Library, local artist Margret Baldwin will host a screening of the 2000 film, Pollock, on Thursday, May 30th at 6:30 PM. The fifth 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, June 1st at 4:00 PM, where participants will be guided in “landscape of the mind” drip painting. 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 Ed Harris, also stars Harris as the artist Jackson Pollock, and Marcia Gay Harden as his wife Lee Krasner who won an Academy Award for her role.

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 hannah.cyrus@bhpl.net or 374-5515.
