SOUTHWEST HARBOR — David Little, co-author of “Art of Acadia,” will speak at the Southwest Harbor Public Library on Tuesday, Aug. 30, at 5:30 p.m.
“Art of Acadia” was written in celebration of Acadia National Park’s Centennial. The book is a collection of stunning works created by artists over the last century. These artists all were inspired by the beauty of Mount Desert Island, the Cranberry Isles and Schoodic Point. Several pieces from the collection of the Southwest Harbor Public Library are featured in the book.
Little, who lives and paints in Portland, holds a master’s degree in fine arts from the University of Iowa and studied for two seasons at the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture. He has exhibited widely in Maine and New York, and his work has appeared in publications including “Art of the Maine Coast” and “Paintings of New England.” Known for his landscapes of Maine’s interior, especially the Katahdin region, he is the author of “Art of Katahdin.”
There will be books for sale and signing. Call the library at 244-7065.
