Join the Falmouth Public Library as we host local artist and writer Mimi Schlichter for an author talk and book signing on Saturday, September 17th from 4pm-5:30pm in the library's Hermann meeting room!  Mimi will be discussing her newest book The 54 and Then Some: The 54 Falmouth Beach Paintings in 54 Days Project Expanded Edition with The Other 46, as well as offering a demonstration of her alla prima oil technique used during the project.  Registration is required and copies of the book will be available for purchase by Eight Cousins at the event.

"On April 1, 2020 the Town of Falmouth closed its beach parking lots as a proactive measure to reduce Covid 19 viral spread. It meant I lost the option of painting beach scenes from the front seat of my car. They remained closed until May 24. A total of 54 days.  One year later, March, 2021, I found myself sitting in my car in a beach parking lot, painting and wondering "why didn't I do this more often last year?" Then I remembered. I couldn't get there.  The idea came to me to celebrate how life is different this year. So on April 1, 2021, I began a series of 54 paintings of the Falmouth beaches. My personal commitment was to complete the paintings in 54 days, one a day, every day, by May 24. You hold in your hands the result of that commitment.  In this new expanded version, I include The Other 46, the paintings completed in the 46 days following the completion of the 54 project. They take the alla prima "a painting a day" run to a full 100 days."

Mimi Schlichter is a local artist, author and musician.  “She moved from Pennsylvania to Cape Cod in 1997 to pursue painting in an environment of light and beauty with nature as her inspiration and The Holy Spirit as her muse.  She paints mostly in oils, while also enjoying the flexibility and spontaneity of watercolor pencils paired with ink.  It is her goal to bring to life scenes and visions that inspire, soothe, and bring joy, be they tiny minis at 2"x2" or massive multi panel installations.”

Make sure to also check out Mimi's "The Beaches and Beyond" Art Exhibit that will be on display in the Adult Collections Room of the Falmouth Public Library from September 2nd through the 30th.  The Art Exhibit will show some of the paintings from the 54 day project along with newly created oil paintings that will be added each week.
