For the month of September, Liberty Library will showcase sport art paintings by Leslie Woods of Montville in her first solo show. The artworks, in either pastel or acrylic, cover seven sports and include an award-winning baseball painting. Woods will donate 20% of every sale to the library.
Leslie Woods studied art at the University of NH and the University of Maine at Augusta as well as the Hutchinson Center and Waterfall Arts. Three years ago, she began entering juried shows and won first place in the 2015 Waldo County Hospice show and in 2016 had both her paintings accepted into the Maine Open Juried Art Show in Waterville, where one painting won an award. In both years, she entered the Boothbay Harbor state-wide open juried show; her work has been accepted. Her work can be seen at River Arts in Damariscotta where it has been regularly chosen in the gallery’s juried shows.
Woods says, “I don’t paint sports stars because my heroes are all the players, coaches and everyone who loves sports. I capture the transitions in sport like the pitcher who switches from one foot to another during a quarter second.”
The energy of sports action is evoked in the paintings by carefully broken geometry and color design that keeps the eye moving around the surface.

About 35 years ago, Janet Heslam bought from an antique shop in Brooks four daily journals from October 1864 to October 1871. It turns out they were written by a man in Montville who farmed, but he also supervised the one room school houses. At the end of the first journal, she found the signature of H. M. Howard. The other journals are not signed. Janet determined the journalist was 27, in 1865, and his daughter Eva died in 1864. Janet decided to transcribe these journals to share in her weekly letters to her grandchildren. She offered to share these transcriptions so they could be posted on the Library webpage for everyone to read. We will post one a month. It will be interesting as we go through the year to compare the daily happenings of a man 150 years ago to the present day. We hope you enjoy!
