Celebration of the Seasons – watercolors by Anne Cronin
Anne Cronin is a native of Maine now living in Camden. She received her degree in art and design at the Cambridge School of Design. Her watercolor paintings and ink drawings of land and seascapes of both Maine and Southern California have been shown at Small Wonder Gallery in Camden, Bartlett Woods in Rockland, and River Arts Gallery in Damariscotta. She has been a member of Art Alliance in Belfast and Art Space in Rockland and was among a group of artists who participated in the Camden-based stroke survivor group show and has had a solo show at Quarry Hill in Camden.
An inspiration to her friends and fellow artists, Anne has continued to paint and draw many years after a stroke, further developing as an artist and finding inspiration in the natural world around her.
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.
