Art historian Carl Little and his brother, artist David Little, will talk about the making of their new book, Art of Acadia.
Published in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of Acadia National Park, the Littles’ book highlights the artists who have been inspired by the landscape of greater Mount Desert Island, including the Cranberry Isles and Schoodic Point, from the early 19th century to today.
Carl Little, a resident of Mount Desert Island, has been immersed in the art world for more than 30 years. He has has published two collections of poems and more than 20 art books, most of which have been inspired by his home state. David Little is an artist known for his paintings of Maine’s interior, especially the Katahdin region.
Also available for viewing will be the original work featured on the cover of Art of Acadia: Alexandra Tyng’s oil painting Jet Streams, a dramatic aerial portrait of the eastern peninsula of Mount Desert Island.
