30 DAYS OF ART to Benefit Camden Public Library
The Camden Public Library is pleased to feature Alan Claude as the June Artist-of-the-Month. Claude’s graphic art depictions of beloved lighthouses and New England scenery are striking, colorful, and wonderfully reminiscent of the stylized travel posters from the 1920s and 1930s.
Additionally, on Tuesday, June 23, at 6:00 pm, the library will host an opportunity to “virtually” meet the artist with the online program, “A Conversation with Artist Alan Claude” via the Zoom platform. The presentation will be a forum for fans to learn more about the artist, including his fascinating childhood growing up in France, and his current involvement in a major Main Street revitalization effort in Gardiner, where his new studio and gallery will be located. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a link to attend the Zoom program.
Although he resides inland in central Maine, the beauty of the midcoast has been a major inspiration, reflected prominently in his early lighthouse travel print series. “My wife and I were married at Marshall Point Light, and I find myself returning to the midcoast again and again. The Camden region is one of the most beautiful places in Maine. The iconic library and its service of art and culture to the community is priceless and worthy of support.”
