Seven artists who make their summer and year-round homes in the Moosabec area are featured in a show at Jonesport’s Peabody Memorial Library through September 9.
Valerie Aponik came to Maine in her twenties as a back-to-the-lander, and has lived on Beals’ Great Wass Island for many of the remaining 45 years. She calls herself “passionate about painting outdoors” where the scene she is putting on canvas changes quickly. “Whether it is a grand landscape or a celebration of the everyday, my work is a response to being present.”
