Nina A. Baugh was a familiar face in Jamestown for over fifty years, a Philadelphian who summered on the island for decades. Few knew of Baugh’s artistic talent, which she quit entirely upon getting married in 1935. This exhibit, her first ever, features portraits drawn and painted by Baugh from the ages of 13 to 25 – it’s all work she unceremoniously shoved in a trash bag and left untouched until family members uncovered them years after her she died in 1981. Subjects include Peter Gopcevic, Baugh’s future husband, as well as her sister and brother-in-law, but most of the faces still remain a mystery.
