Gibbs Library is pleased to present: Wanderings, original photography by local artist Rachel Oakes, on exhibit during March and April.

Photographs will be available for purchase.

“I began taking photos as references for paintings and found a love for photography as its own art form. I do not have a professional setup by any stretch–my photos are just a means of journaling and capturing moments of beauty and magic in everyday life, raising children and exploring our little piece of the planet, here in Maine.”
