Paintings on Exhibit

Colorado - Dream Lake

Sett Balise, supervisor of the Davistown Museum, will be exhibiting his oil paintings during July. 

“These paintings are inspired by America’s scenic back roads, trails, and parks, with the occasional hint of the fantastic creeping in. I like to focus on the impact of lighting on a landscape and prefer sunset and sunrise scenes. Maine’s ample bucolic splendor has given me plenty to paint in my time living here.” 

Sett’s paintings are for sale, and a percentage will go to the library.
