BAR HARBOR — Ivan Rasmussen, watercolorist & former harbormaster, painted “Odd Lobsters” for the Oct. 5 ART Walk Bar Harbor. The popular crustacean comes in many colors even orange, blue or calico. Additionally, a lobster that may have been injured in a fight with another sea creature can sustain injuries resulting in a healing process that produces multiple claws. The scientific term for these natural abnormalities is “bruchdreifachbildungen” but the artist just calls them “odd”.
The watercolor show, “Odd Lobsters”, will open 6-9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5, at ART on West, 78 West St., during the final ART Walk Bar Harbor 2018. Pick up a free map at the Chamber of Commerce visitors centers, most lodging, and all participating venues: http://www.artwalkbarharbor.com/
