Maine Folk Art: Decorated Works on Paper

Last Fall we were in Maine taking a short vacation in the coastal town of Kennebunkport. At the same time we were there, the Maine Historical Society was presenting the Maine Folk Art Trail, a collaborative effort among 11 museums and historical societies statewide to guide visitors to the best of Maine folk art -- work produced by ordinary people without professional training. Here are some highlights from the exhibit at Bates College, an exhibition of delicate works on paper from 18th and 19th century Maine.
