As Bowdoin honors 40 years of coeducation at the College, Maine furniture maker Thos. Moser has launched a year of curated art work with a Maine connection to mark that company’s 40th year. As part of Thos. Moser’s celebration, four Maine alumnae artists open an exhibition today, along with alumni from Bates and Colby, with a public reception from 6:00-8:00 at the Thos.

The work of Anne Ireland ’76 (Falmouth, Maine), Susan Sheinbaum Williams ’81 (Rockport, Maine), Bridget Spaeth ’86 (Brunswick), and Cassie Jones ’01 (Brunswick) will be on display until July 9, 2012.
