Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Library, local artist Margret Baldwin will host a screening of the 1995 film, Andrew Wyeth, Self Portrait: Snow Hill, on Thursday, June 20th at 6:30 PM. The last 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 22nd at 4:00 PM, where participants will be guided in creating a painted figure in a landscape. The film screening is free and open to all, but registration for the workshop will only be for those at the film screening.

This documentary, narrated by Stacy Keach, includes footage of Andrew Wyeth and an interview with his famous model Helga Testorf, as well as many family photos, letters and home movies.

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.
