“Sunflower” by Nancy Preble Submitted photo

The photographs of Nancy Preble and Peter Elias are on display through December at the Woman’s Hospital Association Rotating Art Gallery at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston.

A lifelong resident of the Twin Cities, Preble is a self-taught photographer who has enjoyed this art form as a hobby for many years. She has exhibited at numerous venues in Maine including the University of Southern Maine, L/A College area artist show in 2011, 2013 and 2015, the Fryeburg Fair from 2003-2016, the Cumberland County Fair exhibit from 2004-2016, and the Sportsmen of Maine show from 2011-2016. She has won much recognition and several awards for her work including a second place award for her image “Winter Wonderland” in 2002 on the maine.gov website.

Dr. Elias has lived in Auburn since 1977, raising a family, practicing medicine, and enjoying the very best of Maine. Since retiring after 4 decades as a family physician he has had more time to pursue some of his other passions, including hiking, Nordic skiing, woodworking, and photography. This exhibit clearly reflects how he likes to spend his time.

The works on display may be purchased through the WHA Gift Shop located adjacent to the main lobby at Central Maine Medical Center. As a result of the hospital safety precautions due to the pandemic, the art gallery is only available for viewing for staff, patients, and their designated visitors at this time. A percentage of sale proceeds benefits patients of CMMC.
