Today

In Ellsworth, painter David Graeme Baker will talk about his work from 4 to 5 p.m. today at Courthouse Gallery Fine Art. Baker will review his career and discuss his recent body of work, which is currently on exhibition in the gallery.

Baker made a name for himself in Pennsylvania, then moved with his family to Maine in 2000. Maine’s influence is evident in Baker’s recent work. He combines figure, still life and landscape motifs into narrative paintings.

Baker’s show runs through Aug. 25. Courthouse Gallery is on Court Street. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Call 667-6611 or visit www.courthousegallery.com
