CMMC Woman's Hospital Association Rotating Art Gallery Featuring Works of a Painter and a Photographer-Painter

The works of photographer-painter Sandra Lee Huston and painter Claire Amero will be on display at the Central Maine Medical Center Woman's Hospital Association (WHA) Rotating Art Gallery from October 27 to December 1.

The artwork may be purchased through the WHA Gift Shop, located adjacent to the Main Lobby at CMMC. A percentage of sale proceeds benefit CMMC.

Inspired to express herself on canvas after traveling in Europe and visiting numerous art museums, Amero has taken classes from several accomplished artists. Her subjects focus on color, composition, light and shade and often feature flowers, landscapes and seascapes. Her artwork has been exhibited at art walks in Portland and Lewiston-Auburn, and showcased at She Doesn't Like Guthries in Lewiston. She is a member of Plein Air Painters of Maine Western Maine Chapter.

Huston, a portrait artist since 1990, works primarily in pastels and has focused largely on pets and children. Over a decade ago, she shifted some of her creative energy to photography and in 2006 published "Loons of Tacoma Lakes", her first book.

Her body of work includes a pastel wildlife series created to raise awareness for the rescued big cats of Tiger Haven in Tennessee. She lives in Lisbon Falls.
