BAR HARBOR—The artwork of painter Betty Allen will be on display at the Jesup Memorial Library during the month of July.

Allen, a third generation Mount Desert Island resident, is a painter and painting teacher. She works in many materials, from oils to acrylics, watercolor and pastels. Rocks, seaweed, driftwood and seashells also find their way to her works.

Allen was the cook on the Maine Sea Coast Mission’s boat, Sunbeam, for 35 years and is married to David Allen, one of the boat’s former captains. Her first art students were school children on some of the outer islands that Sunbeam routinely visited.
