Call for artists open

SOUTHWEST HARBOR — The Southwest Harbor Public Library and the Mount Desert Island Women’s History Project call for artists for the March 2016 exhibit is open. This year’s theme, “A Passion for Acadia,” celebrates the centennial of Acadia National Park.

What does Acadia mean to you? Does Acadia call to mind the person who first showed you the beauty of the place? Is Acadia an idea or concept – an inner landscape – which gives you sustenance or inspiration? Is the meaning embodied by a singular moment you experienced within the Park? Whether you find meaning in the place or the spirit of Acadia, your personal expression and interpretation of this shared treasure is welcome.

Participants need not be professional artists – all are welcome from both off and on Mount Desert Island – and all types of media and crafts are encouraged. As space is limited, one piece per artist may be exhibited. You may exhibit at more than one participating library. Artists should contact the library of their choice for more details to sign up.

Registration is due Wednesday, Jan. 29. To register for the Southwest Harbor Public Library Exhibit, visit and look for Women’s History Project 2016 online application. Contact Kate Pickup-McMullin at 244-7065 or [email protected].
