Foster art on exhibit at Norway Memorial Library until Jan. 2

NORWAY – Norway Memorial Library is exhibiting “Common Work and Common Places: Works in Watercolor and Encaustic,” by Betsey Foster through Jan. 2.
Foster began painting after a career in science and journalism. Her two main art subjects are the outdoors and people working at “honest labor.” Foster has painted in watercolors for 10 to 15 years. Her encaustic pieces, which use heated wax with colored pigments, have an abstract flavor and focus on the natural world.
Foster says her art reflects her love of the outdoors and her deep respect and love for the people of this area. She enjoys roaming around and enjoying the mountains, woods, and rivers. When not outdoors, she works with water or fire to create art.
The library does not sell art, but will supply the artist’s contact information upon request.
Norway Memorial Library is at 258 Main St. For more information, visit www.norwaymemoriallibrary.org or call 207-743-5309.
