Author Eckhart Tolle once wrote, “All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness.”Whether Tolle is right, the quiet beauty of this area does breed creativity. Artists have claimed this corner of Maine for more than a century. Take the time to visit the area’s galleries, studios and venues. The variety of performing and visual arts available is sure to tempt one way or another!
