Souvenirs – Art Show Opening

4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Thornton Oaks Retirement Community
25 Thornton Way

Thornton Oaks Retirement Community invites the public to the opening reception of Souvenirs, an exhibit of watercolors and oils by Frances Pratt Caswell, on Wednesday, August 1, at 4:00 p.m. in the Merrymeeting Room at 25 Thornton Way, Brunswick.

Caswell is a long time Brunswick resident, having been introduced to art during her days in Brunswick High School in the 1940’s. Following retirement from teaching English at Southern Maine Technical College, now Southern Maine Community College, she pursued her interest in painting with courses in the Continuing Education Department at Maine College of Art and in summer workshops with many artists including Janet Conlon Manyan and Evelyn Dunphy. She was for many years a member of Casco Bay Art League.

Caswell usually draws inspiration from the Maine landscape; however, for this exhibition she has turned back to the illustrated journals and photo albums

 of travels she took in retirement with her husband, Forrest Caswell. Included in the show are scenes from Iceland, Norway, Scotland, Australia, New Zealand, and South America. At home or abroad she is fascinated by the power and rhythm of water, quiet reflections on inland ponds, and cloud patterns on distant hills, mountains with Alpine glow or rising mist.

Souvenirs will be on exhibit from through September 28. After the opening reception, call the Thornton Oaks office at 373-4600 for best times for viewing.

Thornton Oaks Retirement Community is a homeowners cooperative and includes 46 cottages and 98 apartments nestled in 29 wooded acres in Brunswick. Thornton Oaks is affiliated with Mid Coast-Parkview Health.
