WHA Rotating Art Gallery at CMMC Brings in New Local Art

The Woman’s Hospital Association (WHA) Rotating Art Gallery at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston is proud to be displaying original works of art by the late A. E. Dahlbeck, E. Jordan and Ruth Drinkwater.

A.E. Dahlbeck was a world traveler who spent much of her working years as a registered nurse and later in Pennsylvania as a teacher, returning to Maine to continue her love of painting.

Edmund “Ned” Jordan was a Pennsylvania artist who had a chemistry degree from Temple University and was a Chemical Researcher at the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture’s Research Center, but painting was his passion and he left a large and impressive collection of paintings when he died.

Born in Pennsylvania, Ruth Drinkwater moved to Maine after her marriage, taking painting classes with a local artist in Kennebunkport. Her art complimented her gift as a talented seamstress who worked for both Peck’s Department Store and Morin’s Bridal. She painted views of the life around her up until the final month before her death several years ago.

As her son, Rev. Gary Drinkwater states, “She would have been proud to have her paintings displayed at Central Maine Medical Center.”

These paintings are being offered during the month of January at half their original value to encourage sales benefiting the CMMC Woman’s Hospital Association, The Transfiguration Anglican Church of Mechanic Falls and the Greenwood Gallery in Auburn. The works on display may be purchased through the WHA Gift Shop located adjacent to the main lobby at Central Maine Medical Center.
