    Edward Vaughan will be the February Artist in the Mechanics' Hall Library, opening his Exhibit " A Glimpse of Light" on the First Friday Artwork on Feb. 6th, 5-6:00 pm. Open for viewing during library hours for the month of Feb.
      A self-taught painter, Mr. Vaughan has been working in oils since 2001

  Mr Vaughan moved to Portland from Boston in 2013 and began painting again in the fall 2014

    He has combined his love of Architecture and Structures with his love of painting  to produce this new work and looks forward to  capturing the light and buildings of Portland, his adopted city
