Author Carl Little will present a slide talk “Art of Acadia” based on the book of the same name written by him and his brother David. The public lecture will be held on Wednesday, June 20, and begins at 7:00 p.m. in Moore Auditorium on the Schoodic Institute campus in Winter Harbor. From Thomas Cole to Richard Estes, many of America’s most celebrated artists have been inspired by the landscape of the Acadia region. Published to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the founding of Acadia National Park in 2016, Art of Acadia highlights the rich continuum of art inspired by the region, which includes the Cranberry Isles, Isle au Haut and Schoodic. In his talk, Little will offer a selection of images from the book, including a sampling of contemporary interpretations. Little has written a number of art books, most recently, Philip Barter: Forever Maine and Paintings of Portland (with David Little). He contributes articles to Art New England, Maine Boats, Homes and Harbors and Island Journal. He helped produce film portraits of artists Dahlov Ipcar, Beverly Hallam, William Thon, and Jon Imber as part of the Maine Masters series and is featured in the video “Richard Estes: My Camera Is My Sketchbook.” The program is free and open to the public. No registration is required.
