Karen Anne Baldauski signs her work: KAB. She has spent her life as an artist who chose to live in Maine since 1978 and makes her home in Lubec living on a farm with woodland that reaches to the
sea. Her skills have enabled her to earn a living as an artist in the fields of graphic design, fine art, fine craft, photography, illustration, and publishing.
The 2020 Summer Exhibition paintings and new works will be available when the gallery reopens to share artworks exhibited no where else in the world.

In Karen's FIRST COMPETITION
while still in college, she won first prize for her oil painting "Hope" at
the Indiana Intercollegiate Salon of Art, a national competition. Her professor of painting suggested she enter a piece. The unexpected prize marked the beginning of her life developing a
career in the arts. Her creative works span the worlds of painting, drawing, serigraphy, and felting fibers. Her sculpture, a stand alone piece of 21 painted wood loons, is not for sale. The head of
the art department advised her following a course in freehand drawing live models: "Drop everything you may have planned and BE AN ARTIST!" (Karen says: A. Reid Winsey has passed on and I am forever
grateful for his insight while I was a liberal arts student at DePauw University.)
