WILTON – A slide presentation about Maine contemporary art by Center for Maine Contemporary Art Education Director Cathy Melio will take place at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 8, at the Wilton Public Library.

The event is part of the “Fear No Art Tour,” which began in Maine schools and is traveling around the state to libraries. The outreach tour is part of the center’s effort to connect people with Maine contemporary art and artists in an entertaining, interesting and informative way.

At each library, Melio will be joined by a contemporary artist from the local area who will also present a brief slide program about his or her art. The guest artist at the Wilton Public Library will be Nancy Romines Walters, who had a solo exhibition at the center in 2005.

The program runs about 45 minutes. The program is free and each person who attends will receive a free pair of guest passes to the center, which will be good for one visit duirng one year. The program is supported in part by a grant from the King and Jean Cummings Fund of the Maine Community Foundation.

The center is a nonprofit organization advancing contemporary art in Maine through exhibitions and educational programs. Founded in 1952 as Maine Coast Artists, it is located at 162 Russell Ave. above Rockport Harbor and on the Web at www.cmcanow.org.
