Paintings of Susie Wass Thompson, famed watercolor artist from Cape Split, Maine, will be the subject of the first one-man show at Colby College’s new Bixler Art and Music Building. Mrs. Thompson, a great-grandmother in her 70s, did not start painting until 1954, although she has quickly achieved success. The subjects of her paintings are predominantly of the Maine Coast, however, there will be included individual studies of details of nature, namely trees and flowers.
