    Explore the beauty of Maine through the juxtaposition of art and natural history. This exhibition will join the flora and fauna of the surrounding area with an artistic definition of a field as an expansive space. Works in a variety of mediums from contemporary Maine artists depicting fields of land and color will be featured. 

    The L.C. Bates Museum is proud to announce its new exhibition Open Spaces: Reimagining Pastoral Maine, opening on May 6th 2016. The show, the result of a collaborative effort between the L.C. Bates Museum staff and two Colby College students, Francesca Soriano and Nora Hill, under the supervision of Professor Véronique Plesch, aims to explore the natural beauty of Maine’s fields and the flora and fauna that fill them. Defining fields as an expansive space, the exhibition seeks to combine scientific and artistic methods of looking at fields. Works in a variety of mediums from contemporary Maine artists will be featured. The exhibition gives visitors a broad perspective of how artists view and portray nature. 

    An opening reception for the exhibition will be held at the L.C. Bates Museum on May 6th from 5-7pm. Throughout the summer there will be various workshops with featured artists and visitors of all ages are encouraged to attend. The L.C. Bates Museum is located in Hinckley, Maine and welcomes visitors to explore Open Spaces: Reimagining Pastoral Maine as well as any objects on display from the Museum’s rich permanent collection.

    The museum will be open for train rides during February school vacation week, Saturday, February 13th – Sunday, February 21st, 2016. We’ll be open from 9:30am-4:00pm with train rides on the hour from 10:00am-3:00pm

    We’re excited to share that Monson Steam Locomotive #3 will be running for the duration of the week.  Monson #3 will only be at the museum for a limited time this spring so if you want to see her in action, don’t delay!  Our steam volunteers will be on hand to provide an up-close look at the locomotive between runs.  Be sure to visit with the crew in the cab, before or after your ride, to ask questions. To add to the fun, we’ll be serving complimentary hot chocolate and cookies to passengers all week. Shake off the winter blues and join us for some family fun at the museum this February!

    Note – In case of mechanical issues, Diesel Engine #1 will be in operation in place of Monson Steam Locomotive #3.

    Ending this very busy year is our annual Home for the Holidays Reception and House Tour. This year the chosen home is located at 7 Hyler Street. This textbook style Queen Anne Victorian house was built in 1890 by Thomaston sea captain Edwin S. Smalley, Master Mariner of ship Manuel Liaguno and owned by family members for the next 87 years. Interesting features include a bold and unconventional color scheme – a trait of the period – along with a Victorian period porch, round tower and decorative gables.

    A wine reception with live music, both live and silent auctions will kick off the event at 5 to 7 P.M. on Friday, December 11th. On Saturday, December 12th from 10 A.M. until 3 P.M. the house will be available for tours and the silent auction will still be available. The house will be decorated for the holidays in the style appropriate for the time period in which the house was built.

             To make reservations for the Friday gala, please call 354-7029. Reservations are not needed for the Saturday event.  

     For more information please call Eve Anderson at 354-8835 or contact her via e-mail at  katsmeow@roadrunner.com
