“How do the lakes, forests and rivers of inland Maine inspire your work?” Twenty Maine artists respond to this question by submitting work to the first land trust art show at the Canaan Farmers Hall coordinated jointly by Somerset Woods Trustees and Sebasticook Regional Land Trust called “Saving Beauty”.
Protecting woods, watersheds, wildlife habitats and farmlands, (natural resources essential to the continued vitality of Maine) is the joint mission and providing access to the public when possible is the goal. In a chaotic and busy world, the natural world provides the opportunity for rest, and the time for wonder.
