BAR HARBOR — The work of Otter Creek artist Beth Somers who works in oil pastels will be at the Side Street Café, on Rodick Street, starting this Friday, Dec. 9.
The artist will be on hand for the opening during happy hour, on Dec. 0 from 4 to 6 p.m. to answer questions and talk about her work.
Ms. Somers trained formally in art techniques while in college, but put down her brushes to raise a family, but returned to creating art recently.
“I’ve always had the intention to get back to it,” Ms. Somers said. “It just seems like a switch got flipped about a year ago, and I just stopped making excuses to not get to my easel. It’s so easy to be too busy.”
