Following Light, Color, and Nature, watercolors by Jaeohk Cho Keenan
Keenan is a self-taught watercolor painter who relied on books as her teachers. While learning to paint landscapes she realized that the best time to capture light and color in nature is early morning and late afternoon.
Moving to the Belfast area three and a half years ago Keenan enjoys exploring and painting the scenery of Maine. “Through my work, I always want others to feel the peacefulness, the beauty, and excitements that nature offers”, Keenan says.
About the Gallery:
The Barbara Kramer Gallery at the Belfast Free Library, located on the ground floor, was named in memory of Barbara Kramer who was an ardent supporter of the visual arts in the Midcoast area in the 1980s until her death in 1998. When the library was undergoing a significant expansion in the late 1990s, a group of area residents with the encouragement of the Library Board of Trustees raised funds to create this special exhibition space where art and or other materials relating to the history of the library or Belfast can be displayed.
