“Painting an Inclusive History: Maine Women in Politics,” is an exhibition of the work of Jerri Whitman. Based in Dresden, Maine, Whitman is a longtime artist who works in oil, pastel, acrylic, colored pencil and graphite. Presently, Whitman is working to create a portrait of every woman from Maine who has been elected to the Maine Legislature, the U.S. House of Representatives, or the U.S. Senate. The first twenty-six of these portraits are featured in “Painting an Inclusive History” and are currently on display at the Margaret Chase Smith (MCS) Library. This exhibition opened on Monday, May 20th, and will close on Wednesday, November 27th, 2024.

On Thursday, June 20th, from 4pm to 7pm, there will be a public opening reception for “Painting an Inclusive History” at the MCS Library in Skowhegan, Maine. This event will be free and open to all, there will be light refreshments served, and brief welcoming remarks will be given at 5pm.

The staff of the MCS Library encourages everyone to either attend the public opening reception on Thursday, June 20th, from 4pm to 7pm, or visit the MCS Library before the exhibition ends in November 2024. The MCS Library is open to the public Monday to Friday, 10am to 4pm, and reservations are highly encouraged for visitors. To make a reservation, please call the MCS Library, (207) 474-7133.
