Augusta — Paintings by Midcoast artist R. Kirk Moore are on display in the House Majority Office in the Maine State House.

“I’m incredibly proud to represent the people of Waldo County and I can’t think of a better way to honor the talent of my neighbors than to hang Kirk’s beautiful work in my office in the Maine State House,” said House Majority Leader Erin Herbig, D-Belfast.

Moore works full-time as a painter. His studio is in Belfast, where his lives with his wife and two younger children. He is a landscape painter and works primarily in oils, acrylics and mixed media. For more information or to view a gallery of Moore’s work, visit
