In the Kennebunk Room:
The “Fishbox Painters”, Rozanna Patane, Pamela Wallis, Heather Parker and Jeanine Means will display their work in the Kennebunk Room at the Library from October 24 – December 31. They are an informal group of local artists so named for the restaurant fishboxes that they use as palettes. Each has her own distinct style working in oil and/or acrylics but all four hope to bring light and life to their paintings through the thoughtful use of shapes and color.
