Art of Acadia
The Mount Desert Island and Acadia region of Maine has been the subject of artists for hundreds of years and many of America’s most celebrated painters have been inspired here. From Thomas Cole to Richard Estes, painters have captured the exquisite beauty of the island on canvas. Their work has drawn visitors year after year and helped inspire the preservation of its extraordinary natural beauty through the creation of Acadia National Park. This view of the region through the works of talented artists grants a new perspective to our collective appreciation of this unique convergence of land and sea.

David Little, a resident of Portland, Maine, has been painting the Maine landscape since 1983, and has always been drawn to rugged Katahdin wilderness. He attended the Skowhegan School in 1981 and 1982, and was a recipient of the Carina House fellowship on Monhegan in 1998. Little is represented by Courthouse Gallery Fine Art in Ellsworth and by Thomas Moser Cabinetmakers in Freeport. His work has been included in exhibitions at the Blaine House, Bates College Museum of Art, and the Farnsworth Art Museum. Little’s experience in the art world is broad—he spent ten years working at the Bayview Gallery in Portland, and he gives critiques, juries art shows, and curates. This is his first book.
