WHA Rotating Art Gallery for August at CMMC

LEWISTON, ME (August 5, 2022) — The Woman’s Hospital Association (WHA) Rotating Art Gallery at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston is proud to display the work of two artists, Jeanelle Demers and Michele Townsend for the month of August.

A well-known local artist from Lewiston-Auburn, Demers has recently branched out from painting pet portraits to experimenting with botanical illustrations. She has found a new love of photographing flowers and plants while traveling to different areas and drawing from those photos. The prints on display are giclee reproductions of ink drawings from her travel sketchbook combined digitally with acrylic underpaintings. She has been enjoying this new endeavor, combining her love of wild things from the natural world with color and linework. More information and artwork is available through her website

Having an exhibit for the first time at CMMC, Townsend has been working with pastels for 40 years with a focus on nature and animals. “I enjoy working with my fingers close to the paper and seeing the pastels blend together to complete each piece”

The works on display may be purchased through the WHA Gift Shop located adjacent to the main lobby at Central Maine Medical Center. A percentage of sale proceeds benefits patients of CMMC. As a result of the hospital safety precautions due to the pandemic, the art gallery is only available for viewing for staff, patients, and their designated visitors at this time.
