LEWISTON — The works of photographer-painter Sandra Lee Huston and photographer Arlene McConnell are on display at the Central Maine Medical Center Woman’s Hospital Association rotating art gallery.

A collection of photographs by McConnell, and an assortment of photographs and paintings by Huston, will be displayed at CMMC throughout October and may be purchased through the WHA Gift Shop, located adjacent to the main lobby. A percentage of sale proceeds benefit CMMC.

McConnell, a Topsham resident, assembled a collection of photographs “Winter Horses” for exhibition at CMMC.

A self-taught photographer, McConnell’s subjects range from landscapes and nature to animals and people.

Huston, a portrait artist since 1990, works primarily in pastels and has focused largely on pets and children. Some 12 years ago, she shifted some of her creative energy to photography and in 2006 published “Loons of Tacoma Lakes,” her first book.

The CMMC exhibit includes work from Huston’s new pastel wildlife series created to raise awareness for the rescued big cats of Tiger Haven in Tennessee. Some of the proceeds from the sale of the original pastel portraits and prints sold from this series are donated to Tiger Haven to help feed, house and care for nearly 300 rescued big cats. Huston lives in Lisbon Falls.
