Waldoboro Public Library will display a whimsical series of attic window paintings by Waldoboro artist Jean Kigel during March. Once common in New England, attics are now nearly obsolete architectural structures. Kigel says, “There’s something romantic about attic windows as they peer into the past.” She has fond memories of exploring her family attic on North Pond Road in Warren. In it, she found wearable, hand-knit sweaters, moldy collections by Jack London, yellowed penmanship books, a Seth Thomas clock, and an Elias Howe sewing machine. Kigel walks around towns in midcoast Maine looking for unusual attic windows, and her resulting paintings invite the viewer to look up to imagine the history within.
