Solon artist Abby Shahn to present June ArtTalk

Join us on Wednesday, June 15 at 7pm for an ArtTalk with Abby Shahn!

Abby Shahn has lived both in the heart of New York City and now in rural Maine. Her abstract expressionistic work bears witness to political events, while allowing the viewer to interpret freely. She will discuss the life of an artist living, gardening, surviving winter and creating art in this place & in these times. Learn more about Shahn and her work by visiting her website: Monthly ArtTalks at the Harlow have been made possible by generous support from The Bank of Maine. $3 suggested donation
