LEWISTON – A familiar name in the art community, Dan Cake will be the featured artist during June in the display offered by the Woman’s Hospital Association of Central Maine Medical Center.

Cake, a graduate of Hall-Dale High School, attended the Portland School of Art. He worked in graphic arts in the Navy and subsequently worked for a number of printing companies in Maine. He is employed by Geiger Bros. in Lewiston as a graphic artist.

He said his interest in the creative process began at age 4. He works with a number of mediums, including opaque watercolor, pen and ink, scratchboard, silverpoint and graphite. His work tends to be realistic and detailed in nature. He has a particular interest in raptors.

In addition to his various art projects, Cake started painting decoys a number of years ago. His work depicts his fascination with raptors.

The are exhibit, which Cake calls “Birds, But Not All of a Feather,” may be viewed in the main corridor of the hospital throughout June.
