MDI as artist’s muse

MOUNT DESERT — Throughout the month of July, the Northeast Harbor Library will exhibit drawings by Stanley Ira Hallet from his book “Sketches of Mount Desert Island.”

The pencil and pen sketches in this book document his time sitting on a rock deconstructing the landscape in front of him. Part meditation, part observation, the drawings record that special zone where water and land meet as well as the structures that were built nearby.

Regardless of the outcome, Hallet believes the effort of putting pencil to paper is always a rewarding experience.

There will be an opening reception at the library on Tuesday, July 2, at 5 p.m. Copies of the book and prints will be available for purchase during the show.
