Coastal Senior College and LincolnHealth invite you to the 1812 Farm, 1297 Bristol Road, Bristol on Tuesday, Nov. 14 from 10 a.m. to noon to hear Kate Cheney Chappell, artist and co-founder of Tom’s of Maine and Ramblers Way, speak about “Living Life with Passion After 60.” This final class of the co-sponsored series is free. As with the previous seven classes, you will need to register by calling LincolnHealth at 207-563-4540 to reserve your spot. The 1812 Farm offers easy accessibility and plenty of parking.

Chappell studied art at Chatham College and painting, etching and literature at the Sorbonne and l’Atelier Goetz in Paris. She is a 1983 graduate of the University of Southern Maine. A landscape painter for over 30 years, her more recent work combines printmaking techniques, collage and installation, and reflects her deep concern for the natural world. Her art is in the collections of the New York Public Library, the University of New England, Colby, Bates and Bowdoin Colleges, and the New Britain Museum of American Art.

Kate and her husband are co-founders of two environmentally sustainable, socially responsible companies, Tom’s of Maine and Ramblers Way. She serves on the board of the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. Kate founded the Kate Cheney Chappell ’83 Center for Book Arts at the University of Southern Maine in 2006, and serves as chairman of its advisory board.

Kate maintains studios in Westbrook and Monhegan Island. Numerous art residencies include the Vermont Studio Center, Balinglen Arts Foundation (Ireland), and Iceland. A member of Peregrine Press and Women Artists of Monhegan Island, Kate is represented by Mast Cove Gallery in Kennebunkport and Lupine Gallery on Monhegan Island.

We hope you will join us for an engaging class as Kate Chappell talks about continuing to live a life with purpose and excitement, and celebrates all we can be in later life.
