The Be-Square and Daggett clubs are to plan a sleigh ride for Thursday, Jan, 18th, at their next meeting on Thursday, Jan. 11th. Several suggestions for raising money were also talked over and further plans will be made. The Blue Triangle will soon have several evenings a week given over to the new classes. The girls have asked for several worth-while classes and the secretaries have been fortunate in securing splendid teachers.

Among the classes will be “Arts and Crafts,” taught by Miss Wild, supervisor of art in the public schools. Miss Catherine Lawton, a member of the Bates Mandolin club, has been secured for the leader of the Mandolin club which many of the musical members have been interested in. Miss Jalbert, who taught the successful dress-making class, is to give another course. Later announcements will give definitely the nights on which the classes will be held, their fees, and hours at which they will be held

25 Years Ago: 1998

The most complete collection of works by the renowned artist and Lewiston native Marsden Hartley ever assembled is on its way to Maine.

Born Edmund Hartley in Lewiston in 1877, he is hailed in art circles as one of the most well-known of the American modernist painters and one of Maine’s most beloved artists.

The collection, to be shown at the Portland Museum of Art from Jan. 31 to April 26, is expected to give visitors a view of his development as an artist, according to Jessica Nicoll, chief curator at the museum.


Some of the exhibit will reflect the time Hartley spent in Maine and the paintings he did here. “A variety of 50 or so paintings done throughout his life,” Nicoll said.

The show in Portland is only one stop of a traveling exhibition that will appear in 10 art museums across the country. The show originates from the Ione and Hudson Walker Collection, based at the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum in Minneapolis, Minn.

The Portland stop is the exhibit’s only one in New England. In addition to the 50 or so pieces in the traveling collection, the Portland Museum of Art will include a number of Hartley’s works from its own collection, making it the most complete collection of the artist’s work of all the stops.

The material used in Looking Back is produced exactly as it originally appeared although misspellings and errors may be corrected.
