Artist announcement: Jim Taliana

It's Tuesday, which means we're announcing another guest for this year's Books in Boothbay Festival.

Jim Taliana has had 14 one-person shows and has exhibited in watercolor, oils, India ink, photography and sculptures in welded metal, wood, and stone. Recently, he has illustrated three children’s books:  "The Littlest Tugboat," "The Seagull Who Refused to Be Ordinary," and "The Small Tall Ship," all available at most bookstores in Maine. Jim started and chaired the first annual statewide juried Maine Photography Show in 2006. He is a trustee and past president of the Boothbay Region Art Foundation and has been tutoring in art and conducting painting and drawing workshops for over 20 years, both in Maine and Michigan. Each July, he conducts a five-day outdoor painting workshop. Jim is currently represented by five galleries: The Ambleside Galleries in Greensboro, N.C., Cary Gallery in Rochester, Mich., Harlow Gallery in Hallowell, Boothbay Region Art Foundation in Boothbay Harbor, and the Maine Art Gallery in Wiscasset
