Jean N. Harris (1932-1988)
Artist, Watercolor teacher, "Gentle Paintings"
Jean taught watercolors for a number of years, and exhibited and taught locally at Round Top Center for the Arts, the Pemaquid Art Gallery, River Arts, and in galleries throughout the mid-coast.
After a career in advertising and copywriting in New Orleans, Jean began painting and teaching art full time in the mid-1960s. Beginning as an instructor, she became the Director of Gove House, an arts and crafts school in Coconut Grove, FL.
In 1976, Jean and her husband, Richard ,moved to Maine. Her work at Round Top Center for the Arts led to an inspiring progression of group classes including the 'Plein Aire Art Group' and 'Pot luck Painters'. She took part in many juried exhibits, both nationally and in New England.
She was a member of the National Association of Women Artists, National Watercolor Society, and The New England Watercolor Society. Jean was socially proactive, was an active member of Senior College, and attended Midcoast Friends Meetings.
