Welcoming a Puffin Colony
Watercolorist Ivan Rasmussen joins long time friend and colleague bronze sculptor David Smus welcoming Maine’s Puffin Colony back to five Maine islands during ART Walk Bar Harbor, June 7 at ART on West as they share art and tales about the popular seabird. Puffins come home each spring to nest in Maine, the only US home to the iconic Atlantic Puffin.
Rasmussen’s “Homecoming” will be on display at Shaw Gallery, Northeast Harbor through June 19 and his colony of watercolors will open at ART Walk on West, 78 West Street, Bar Harbor, June 7, 6 pm to 9 pm.
Guest artist sculptor David Smus was selected this month to create a Great Black Hawk to be displayed at Deering Oaks Park in Portland. Smus has created four bronze sculptures featuring the Atlantic Puffin.
