Art series returning to Blue Hill Library



BLUE HILL — Back by popular demand, local artist and gallery owner Margret Baldwin will reprise a series of five art history film screenings at the Blue Hill Public Library, each paired with an optional, related hands-on workshop the next evening.

The film screenings are scheduled for Friday nights at 7 on July 6 and 27, Aug. 10 and 24 and Sept. 7. The related workshops are on each subsequent Saturday at 5 p.m.

These events are free and open to all, but space in the hands-on art workshops is limited. Registration for the art workshops will be taken at the film screening the previous night, and is limited to those who attend the films.

The complete schedule is as follows:

  • July 6: “Cave of Forgotten Dreams,” paired with a cave painting art project on July 7.
  • July 27: “Michelangelo: Love and Death,” followed by a subtractive sculpture art project on July 28.
  • Aug. 10: “Mr. Turner,” followed by an atmospheric painting art project on Aug. 11.
  • Aug. 24: “Loving Vincent,” with a brushstrokes art project on Aug. 25.
  • Sept. 7: “Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child” will cap off the series with a graffiti art project on Sept. 8.

Baldwin is a certified art instructor with 25 years in the public school system and private teaching experience. She has exhibited widely and in the summer runs her neighborhood Little Gallery in Surry.
