Acadian Impressions: An Artist and Historian Share

Amphitheater Bridge by Liddy Hubbell
Date: Tuesday Jun 28, 2016
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Artist Liddy Hubbell draws inspiration from Acadia. She is interested by the patterns of formal association and psychological exchange made between landscape, inhabitant, and viewer. She uses the Maine landscape, often from Acadia, to express a hopeful, elevated vision through a colorist style. Her abstract oils also suggest Acadian influences. Working with a dip pen, a brush, and heavy cotton paper, she has rediscovered her joy in working in black and white and building up space and surfaces in monochrome. Acadian trails and carriage road bridges often inspire her drawing.

Jack Russell writes and speaks on the history of Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. He believes in the enduring power of place and the value of a well-known past that builds community.

Liddy will share images of her paintings and drawings inspired by Acadia and speak as an artist about her works. Jack will talk about some of Liddy’s images, sharing both his own subjective response to her art (he is a collector) and the natural and human history of the places she captures.
