Recently, I acquired an Art Gallery Catalogue that was published for the 1900 Maine State Fair in Lewiston. My goal is to contact historical societies to see if any of the paintings from the 1900 exhibit still exist. The first Society will be the Androscoggin Historical Society to see if any of the existing art may have been part of the 1900 display. The catalogue provides the name of the artists and their town of residence. Below is a list of the artists and their home towns:
