Calendar Of Events & Programs


Throughout December, watercolor paintings by the late Mary “Polly” M. B. Wakefield will be on display in the Wotiz Gallery of the Milton Public Library, 476 Canton Avenue in Milton. This collection reflects work done over dozens of years, right up until Polly's death in 2004, while studying with esteemed painter Nancy Sargent Howell. Polly's works reflect Howell's method of allowing students to borrow heavily from her work and others in order to learn how to mix colors, use brush strokes, and develop compositions. The exhibit will include some of Howell's work to help illustrate her method of "teacher-pupil" connection. The exhibit is the final event in a year-long celebration of Polly Wakefield’s 100th birthday year. Mrs. Wakefield died in 2004, leaving her estate to be used for education and enjoyment under the direction of the Mary M. B. Wakefield Charitable Trust.

An opening reception will be held at the library Tuesday, Dec. 2nd from 6-8:00 pm and is free to the public. Gift sets of cards made of some of Polly's paintings will be available for purchase. For more information, call 617-333-0924 x22 or the library at 617-698-5757.
