Had a good day today as BDN visual journalist Ashley Conti and I took the mail boat out to Islesford to visit artist Ashley Bryan at his house. I’ll have a story about Ashley Bryan and a lifetime retrospective exhibit that was at the Islesford Historical Museum this summer (and is moving to College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor next month) within a few weeks, if not sooner.
Ashley Bryan shows Ashley Conti some of the 40-odd puppets he has made from bone, glass, wood, cloth, & papier mache.
Ashley Bryan’s scissors. He using them to make paper collage illustrations for his latest project - a book of Langston Hughes poems.
Today is a rare *three* cruise ship day in #BarHarbor. Pictured here are Balmoral (at left) and the Queen Mary 2. Also in port today is Crystal Serenity. #maine #cruising
Remembering #Sept11 today. A piece of steel from the World Trade Center in NYC is part of this display today at the Ellsworth Fire Dept.
