- Page 34 THE QUODDY TIDES 27 July, 2018 THE NEW BOOK Down East: An Illustrated History of Maritime Maine by Lincoln Paine and published by Tilbury House Publishers and Maine Maritime Museum con- tains 40 images from the collections of the Tides Institute & Museum of Art of the eastern coast of Maine, including the image used on the cover of the book, shown here. This image is a watercolor of sailing schooners in the Passamaquoddy Bay area by artist Dougal Anderson that dates to about 1900. This is the first time that this area has been so well represented through illustrations in a wider survey book on this kind. Science centre showing student artworks by Quinn Sluzenski For the second year running, the Hunts- man Marine Science Centre in St. An- drews is hosting selections from the Bow Seat Student Art Exhibit. Bow Seat is an American ocean advocacy nonprofit that hosts an annual student contest that ac- cepts submissions from all over the world. Students submit art pieces ranging from paintings and sculptures to film and poet- ry. The 2018 theme was "Our Oceans in a Changing Climate." The Huntsman Marine Science Centre learned about this competition in 2017 and worked to display select visual art pieces in their own space. Bow Seat hosts pieces in many exhibits in other parts of the world, but the Huntsman is the first Cana- dian site to host an exhibit. Originally, the exhibit was only sup- posed to be for the 2017 summer, but it was popular and beloved enough that the Huntsman instead requested to keep it year round. In the spring of 2018, they worked with Bow Seat to choose new pieces, with a preference for plastic-cen- tered art to align with the center's current focus on eradicating ocean debris. The 2018 exhibit was unveiled on June 8, World Oceans Day. The exhibit will be on view until the Fundy Discovery Aquar- ium closes for the season on October 14. Cynthia Callaghan, the manager of the aquarium, expresses hope that they will continue their partnership with Bow Seat for many years.
