Art in the Library

Art in the Library is a self-supporting non-profit program of the Peabody Memorial Library. It was designed to give the local artists a place to exhibit their art work; to promote the understanding and appreciation of the visual arts in our communities; to stress the importance of art in our lives and in the lives of our children; and to increase library usage and appreciation.

The Art in the Library "Meet the Artists" receptions are free and presented as a public social event for the enjoyment of all of the community.

If you are interested in showing your artwork, please contact the library at 497-3003.

Conversations With The Collective Unconscious:

Visual language, and the paintings of Robert Beck Join us as painter Robert Beck takes us through the creative process involved in his award-winning studio paintings. Robert’s work has been the subject of three in-depth museum shows, including a fifty-six painting exhibition focused on life in the Maine fishing community presented by the Maine Maritime Museum—the first solo painting exhibition in the museum's 50-year history. Many of those paintings were created and inspired by Beck's experiences in Jonesport and Beals. In addition to the museum shows, Robert Beck has exhibited in more than 30 solo and 50 juried exhibitions. He writes a monthly column for ICON Magazine; has hosted an art-related radio show; has taught, lectured, and mentored artists; and is please to answer questions from painters and laypeople alike. Robert’s paintings can be seen at www.robertbeck.net, including a video of his work in Jonesport by noted filmmaker Bob Krist. Please enjoy this inspiring and illuminating evening with us.
