AUGUSTA — The works of 17 contemporary Maine artists will be on display through March 3 at the Maine State House.

The Maine Arts Commission has partnered with the Penobscot Marine Museum for the current Art in the Capitol exhibit: “Maine: A Continuum of Place.”

It includes 25 paintings by Maine artists, as well as original glass plate images from the museum’s postcard collection. It coincides with the 100th anniversary of “Maine Postcard Day” which was established by Governor Oakley Curtis. Governor Curtis encouraged all Mainers to mail a Maine postcard to out-of-state friends.

The exhibit is on display throughout the ground and second floors of the State House. All Art in the Capitol exhibits are free and open to the public.

For more information, call 287-1501.
