Millinocket-made paper lives on on this portrait by a Maine artist

If there’s one materials that defines artist Summer season J. Hart’s inventive life, it’s paper.

She makes artwork from it. She writes poetry on it. Her household heritage stretches again a number of generations within the paper and logging trade, on the Penobscot River and within the Millinocket mill.

However Hart, a 1993 graduate of Hampden Academy who now splits her time between Maine and upstate New York, didn’t absolutely notice the which means of all of it till she started writing her guide, “Boomhouse.” It’s a group of poems that comes out on Sept. 12 by third Factor Press, and is impressed by the Penobscot River watershed, the rhythms of Maine’s seasons, her Mi’gmaq heritage and her lengthy household historical past within the logging trade.
