Along with her painting career she has taught classes in watercolor and art history at Belfast Senior College.

Anne Spencer’s art has had a strong connection to SSCL as she was a longtime member of the weekly painting group at the library. She was the first artist to exhibit her work to help support the SSCL endowment fund and she helped to launch the library’s Pie & Art Festival, which will celebrate its 10th year in 2023. A percentage of any sales in the exhibition will benefit the SSCL endowment fund.

The exhibition will be on view during regular library open hours, which are Monday 3 – 5 pm, Tuesday 4 – 7 pm, Wednesday 3 – 5 pm, Thursday 9 am – noon and 6:30 – 8:30 pm, and Saturday 9 am – 3 pm.

The library will host a Meet & Greet with the artist on Saturday, November 5th from 11 am to 1 pm. All are welcome.
