LEWISTON – The art work of Irene Duplissis will be featured during December by the Woman’s Hospital Association of Central Maine Medical Center.

Duplissis has been painting professionally for many years and has devoted most of her time teaching art and doing workshops. Now that she is retired, she is concentrating on promoting the development of her own art.

Born in Washington, D.C., Duplissis came to the Lewiston-Auburn area at age 9 and began her art studies in private schools. The setting provided her with a classic introduction to the arts under the tutelage of French nuns.

Today, her work can be found in private collections throughout the United States and abroad. She exhibits in galleries and outdoor art shows.

“Rustic” would probably be the best word to describe her work, as Duplissis enjoys mostly topics that show the character of the New England states.

She has been the recipient of several best of show awards and other awards throughout New England.

Her work can be viewed by appointment at her home and gallery at 70 Baxter Ave., Auburn. For more information, call 795-0805 or e-mail [email protected]
