Maine’s majestic Mount Katahdin is the muse for the 48 artists — including several from the Midcoast — participating in “Inspired by Katahdin,” juried by brothers David and Carl Little, at the Harlow Gallery, 160 Water St. The show will open with a 5 to 8 p.m. reception Friday, Nov. 7, and is free and open to the public.

The artists in the show come from all across the state and offer a wide range of motifs and media in their work. The exhibition was inspired by the acclaimed “Art of Katahdin: The Mountain, the Range, the Region,” written by artist and author David Little and edited by Carl Little. Published by Down East Books in 2013, the book follows an historic timeline using art inspired by the mountain, as well as Katahdin-related literature, photography, graphics, maps and more. The Little brothers will sign copies of the book at the show’s opening reception.

Midcoast artists with work in the show are David Estey and Clarence Hilyard of Belfast; Stefan Pastuhov of Lincolnville; Sandy Dolan of Searsport; and Joan Freiman of Washington.

"Inspired by Katahdin" will run through Nov. 29. The Harlow Gallery is open Wednesdays through Saturdays from noon to 6 p.m. For more information and a complete list of artists, visit harlowgallery.org or call 622-3813.
