WASHINGTON — Gibbs Library, in Washington, invites the public to stop in at Gibbs to view a new watercolor exhibit.

“Sea creatures and other animals…and one landscape,” said Gibbs, in a news release. “A must-see for all ages.”

The artist is Rachael Richmond, from Jefferson, and the show will run through November and December.  


About the Artist

Rachael Richmond is a Maine-based watercolor artist. Her work is primarily representations of animals — lots of fish, shellfish, birds, and farm animals, with an occasional landscape or boat. Richmond does some commissions as well — again, mostly of animals. She wants her art to generate the viewers’ memories of things or places they have seen, according to Gibbs.

Richmond attended the University of Southern Maine where she studied art education (where, ironically, painting was her least favorite art form). She gets her inspiration from places she spends time at — including her hometown of Caribou in Aroostook County, her farm in Jefferson, and her parents’ home in Little Deer Isle on the coast of Maine. In addition to painting,

Richmond is a full-time teacher in Jefferson.
