Artist Julie Babb will hold a solo exhibition of her paintings at the Unitarian Universalist Church Gallery in Brunswick.  The Church is located at 1 Middle Street, and the exhibit will run from Sunday, March 24th until the end of April.  The Gallery is open from 10 – 4.  Babb is well-known in the area for her detailed gouache paintings of birds and natural subjects.  Gouache is an opaque form of watercolor which lends itself to the intense detail that she gives to her paintings.  Babb has studied ornithology with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology Bird Biology course of home study, plus winning a scholarship to attend the ornithology camp at Audubon’s Hog Island.  She has exhibited in many area locations, including the Audubon Guildsland Farm, and a solo show at the Coastal Botanical Gardens in Boothbay.  She has won many awards for her work, including Best of Show for several years at the Maine Sportsmen’s Alliance Wildlife Art Show in Augusta.  Babb also teaches classes for Lincoln County Adult Education and River Arts in Damariscotta.  Julie Babb is represented by the Bayview Gallery in Brunswick, and seasonally, the Pemaquid Art Gallery at Lighthouse Park.  Her work can also be seen at
