Frederick Lynch '62 (Painting), one of the most respected and admired artists in Maine, passed away on Sunday, July 3, 2016, at the age of 80. In a career spanning more than 50 years, Lynch pursued a singular vision that began with the observed world and went deep into the underlying structure of appearances.
