Mount Desert Island artist Heather Thayer will be the April featured artist at the Henry D. Moore Library in Steuben. There will be an opening reception on Monday, April 7th from 5:30-7:00pm and the show will be available during library hours from the 1st to the 30th. Heather Thayer studied painting at the University of Pennsylvania and at the International School of Art in Umbria Italy. She now calls Mount Desert Island home. Quiet winters and the ever-present Maine coast have influenced Ms. Thayer’s work.

Oil paintings from two recent series “Hill” and “Boat Out of Water” will be on display. Thayer says “I am interested in the emotional power of images, in the inherent beauty of the mundane and with humanity’s imperfect relationship to the rest of the world … I strive to find the inherent beauty and power in the curve of the road that is driven every day, in the listing telephone poles we pass so quickly, and in the crow we may barely notice.”
