FORT KENT, Maine – The Blake Library Gallery will feature the artwork of University of Maine at Fort Kent students in Therese Provenzano’s Art 320 Advanced Studio Projects course through Wednesday, May 9. The exhibit, “An Artist Resides In Each Of Us,” may be viewed during library hours.

UMFK students represented in the exhibit are Linda Ayotte, St. Agatha; Ellen Borges, Fort Kent; Julie Clavette, Frenchville; Ivon Portellez, Fort Kent; Mollie Hicks, New Canada; Danielle Jacobson, Bangor; Amos Michaud, Grand Isle; Alain Morin, Fort Kent; Travis Nadeau, Fort Kent; Susan Pelletier, Eagle Lake; and Danielle Thibeault, Fort Kent.

Each student developed his or her individual concepts for creating work in drawing, painting, or sculpture and were challenged one step further by creating and exhibiting an artwork for the UMFK Scholar’s Symposium, One World, One Health and for An Artist Resides In Each of Us. The requirement was to create an artwork where the visual elements translated the theme of the symposium.
