POLAND — “Downeast Seasons” is the theme around which artist Ulla Hansen has selected paintings for her art show which will open from 1-3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, at the A. B. Ricker Memorial Library, Main Street.

The show will be up until New Year’s Day. Library hours are 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday; 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday to Friday; and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday.

The artist, a resident of Poland, was born in the country of Denmark. Always interested in the work of others, beginning when she was a small child watching her father paint with colors with fascinating names like burnt sienna and raw umber, Hansen became more serious about her own art as she reached her “golden years.” She believes that artistry is more about observation than talent.

The stone bridges and carriage roads in Acadia National Park, horseback riding in the foothills of western Maine, life by the lake and hikes in the Maine woods have provided inspiration and subject matter for Hansen’s art. She works in pastels and produces amazing detail in that medium. She also works in oil, watercolor and pencil.
