BAR HARBOR — Pen-and-ink artist Lynda Millar will be at the Jesup Memorial Library on Friday, Oct. 2, from 6-9 p.m. as part of Bar Harbor’s First Friday Art Walk.

Millar, a native of Canada and the French teacher at Conners Emerson School in Bar Harbor, has lived on Mount Desert Island for 15 years. She is primarily a pen-and-ink artist who uses both micron pens and old-fashioned nibs and ink. Recently, she has added cut paper art and altered book art to her repertoire, using small-bladed knives to create fanciful works from old books and plain paper.

For her display at the Jesup, Millar created a series of pen-and-ink drawings inspired by Samuel de Champlain’s travels around Mount Desert Island in 1604. The sun in the background is similar to the one on his now-classic map.
