Added on: January 27, 2011

Paula Dougherty ExhibitMACHIAS, Maine – The Art Galleries at the University of Maine at Machias will host Brooklin artist Paula Dougherty during February and March. Her exhibit of life and figure drawings will be on display through March 18.

Dougherty has a love of people, which translates to a love of figurative work and portraiture. For more than thirty years, the artist has painted and drawn the nude figure from life.

Born and raised in Tenafly, New Jersey, Dougherty has lived on the coast of rural Maine for more than a decade. She draws on many disciplines in her art due to her eclectic philosophy and follows eastern spiritual traditions. Prior to moving to Maine, Dougherty had a private practice in the healing arts for many years.

Dougherty has more than a decade of in-depth training in drawing, oil painting, watercolors, and pastel. She attended the Art Center of Northern New Jersey, the Art Institute of Ridgewood, the School of Visual Arts in New York, the Fair Lawn Center for the Arts, and the Demarest Cultural Center.

In her spare time, Dougherty serves as an art instructor at the Parker Ridge Residential Community in Blue Hill, where she provides monthly art workshops for seniors.

The UMM Art Galleries, located on the first floor of Powers Hall, are open weekday afternoons or by appointment. For more information, please call Art Gallery Director Bernie Vinzani at (207) 255-1279.
