“Arctic Anxiety” by Jean Kigel
With global warming, Arctic terns have become threatened. But Maine Coastal Islands (National Wildlife Refuges) are providing safe nesting habitat for them and other seabirds on 49 coastal islands.
From May through July Maine Coastal Islands Gallery in Rockland is featuring Maine and the Marine Environment: Paintings by Jean Kigel. This exhibit celebrates a variety of protected seabirds like the arctic tern chick and common eider show here, as well as crustaceans, zooplankton, and seascapes. Openings coincide with Rockland’s First Friday Art Walks [AIR] – grand opening May 1 from 5-8 p.m. Sponsored by Friends of Maine Seabird Islands, this exhibit runs through July 2015, Monday-Friday 8:30-4:30.
