Sargent Editor Publisher The Exquisite Corpse When a Portland Magazine story is printed its life is just beginning. It lives forever in the present tense and awakens with the touch of a new reader. Digitally viewers comment on stories they encounter on our replica editions on www.portlandmonthly.com and portland- magazine.com as well as stories we post on Twitter and Facebook. In an evolving pro- cess across time a story is transfigured and in the best cases deepened by its reactions and interpretations. I think of it as an exquisite corpse. The term Exquisite Corpse or cadavre ex- quis refers to a literary parlor game invent- ed around 1924 at the old house at 54 rue de Chateau according to Andr Breton in Le Ca- davre Exquis Son Exaltationa1948catalogforashowofhisworkatLaDragonneGalerieNina Dausset in Paris. Here while sampling tonic local brews he and his circle of early Surrealists among them Marcel Duchamp Man Ray and Man Rays dark- room magician Maines Berenice Abbott would begin with a word then by turns add a new surprising word to create an as- tonishing sentence no one could have imagined alone. Real ex- amples of these first monsters in broad daylight exist which Breton recalls as having given the greatest impression of bewil- derment and never-seen Example No. 1 The completely black light lays down day and night the powerless suspension to do any good. Example No. 2 The anaemic young girl got the waxed mannequins turned red. Example No. 3 The made-up shrimp hardly enlightens some double kisses. In this spirit Id like to invite our readers to add dimension to the extending conversation of ideas we begin in our print sto- ries at Portland Magazine. Across the next four issues on Face- book well post a story from the current issue and reward the five best insights that take us to real places with real times and adventures that offer specific new material to a story in the chain of replies with free one-year subscriptions which may be gifted if you already subscribe.

T his show has been really well re- ceived says front-of-the-house manager Katharine Hall at Lo- cal 188 on Congress Street at Longfel- low Square. She waves a hand at the res- taurant and lounges east wall. Her name is Anna OSullivan and shes sold quite a few prints already. The framed prints are charming two- or three-color portraits of web-footed shore birdsherons pelicans ducksplus the odd hen and rooster done in a style that recalls old Chinese block prints but with Maine birds. Theyre stunning and graceful priced quite accessibly between 100 and 300. French Fry Gulls is 250. Cafe-art CommerCe Local 188 has always hewn to the motto Eat Drink Art and its walls have always served as a gallery for local art. Meg Walsh a potter whos worked on and off at Local for half a dozen years curates the shows hangs them provides viewers with titles and pric- es and manages the sales details. I love the opportunity to give local art- ists a place to sell their work she says speaking for herself as well. When we sit down and order drinks we find Walshs bud vases on the restaurants many tables. These are available for sale in the retail shop at Portland Museum of Art down the street. On a subsequent visit a new exhbit has just been unveiled that is released. Chad Creightons startlingly expressive owl paint- ings preside above diners heads. He paints on salvaged pallet wood Walsh says. He sands it just enough to be able to paint it.

Local 188 has you at hello when you first walk in because it always smells utterly deli- cious in a lively Spanish or Italian way. And as the song says the gin is cold and the jazz is hot. The Spoon on The hill A t the other end of Congress Street the Blue Spoons rich gray walls are hung with a collection of what at first looks like framed sepia pen-and-ink portraits. Closer inspection reveals these are actually dyed cotton and linen napkins. I dont have formal training with wax resists Im just winging it learning what does and doesnt work artist Amelia Fais Harnas says. Wax resist is the fabric-dy- ing method used in batik. Using wine Har- nas achieves a remarkable level of detail dy- ing fabric in stages. I tend to use old-vine wines she says which lend the brownish brick-red color. Weve arrived at the Spoon in time for Wine Time happy hour so we order up 3 glasses of the house Italian white and take a seat under wine-stain portraits of Ernest Hemingway and Joan of Arc. The Blue Spoon though much small- er and more minimalist in decor has the same sensual earthy appeal as Local 188. Chefowner David Iovino is a mas- ter of gourmet peasant food. We sip our icy mineral wine and devour crostinis topped with hot melted blue cheese and allow ourselves to pretend were on the Left Bank. n Year after year the city tops the list as one of the best places to live and grow a business.

He is not par- ticularly forthcoming about his work. This is not because he is shy or secretivein fact hes quite open and direct about his content and techniquesbut rather because like so many accomplished painters he relies more on his eye and his sensibilities than on ex- plainable theories or preset ideas. Estess home is one of Fred Savages ar- chitecturally remarkable cottages. While it is beautifully decorated the house is more defined by its spatial elegance than by the objects within it. The ostensible subject of our conversa- tion is his Maine paintings even though his artistic accomplishment was built on his paintings of New York. So we begin there. I ask Estes why his Paris Street Scene looks more like a unified space while the buildings in his New York City paintings like Jones Diner feel individualized and P ainter Richard Estes has a place already secured in history books as the leading proponent of painterly photorealismone of the last true isms in art and a movement that changed the way we un- derstand realism While realism had been gauged by accuracy and verisimilitude its standard is now the photograph. On a visit with Estes at his home and stu- dio in Northeast Harbor I discover a friend- Isnt that 44 p o r t l a n d monthly magazine fromToprichardEsTEscourTEsymarlboroughgallEryNEwyorkphoTobydaNiElkaNy almost incongruently distinct from each other. I expect a discussion about place that will encompass his Maine paintings but Estes turns our talk to a subject about which he is both passionate and deeply knowledgeable architecture. I guess deep down I am a frustrated ar- chitect he says. I was accepted to study with Mies van der Rohe but I returned from a trip abroad too late in the semester to at- tend IIT. But I wasnt too late for The School of the Art Institute of Chicago so I enrolled in art school 1952 to 1956. I trained to be a graphic artist and after art school I worked as a commercial illustrator for ad agencies and magazines. E stes has two studios in his home. One is an airy and open rectangu- lar space which Estes astutely in- dicates was a later addition bathed in the light of north-facing windows that reach from the floor to the soaring ceiling. Above the mantel hangs a large square painting of the Brooklyn Bridge Estes made specifical- ly for that space that pipe with the hard shadow in the front center he explains was the toughest challenge of the paint- ing and he is quick to note the historic bridges many connections with Maine. The only studio accoutrement in the comfort- able room however is a freestanding ea- sel on which sits an unfinished painting of Columbus Circle viewed from a subway en- trance. Lined up on the floor are four small horizontal landscapes. Are you still working on that painting of Columbus Circle Yes. In fact I am still working on all of these. He points at the four smaller paintings. They are for an upcoming show I have at Marlborough Gallery in Manhattan. Two of them are Africa but one is hereAcadia. I thought there might be more reference materi- als aroundphotos and drawingsbut I dont see any and your studios dont seem to be set up for that. After a certain point all of my decisions are based on what happens in the paintings. Even from the start getting the values right is important for me and thats why I often do under-painting in acrylic before finish- ing with oil. I can work out the values and make changes far more quickly because the acrylic dries in minutes. I dont use source materials for the details. When I make deci- sions about whether a piece is done I dont compare it to anything. It just has to feel right to me. Do you approach your Maine paintings differently than your New York scenes No. I make them the same way. What about the multiple perspective systems of New York Your city paintings typically have two or three vanishing points. Thats the way the city is. This is why I par- ticularly like to paint Broadway. It cuts across the grid of streets and avenues. That is why the Flatiron building appears so often in my paintings. It was defined by these di- agonals and multiple perspectives. So there are just different kinds of paths and reflec- tions in your Maine paintings Yes. He points to an easel supporting a highly finishedbut incompletepainting of hills reflected in a Maine lake. I want more definition here indicating a sunlit passage of the far hills on the left side of the image but I might keep this piece re- ally loose. Im not sure. So you wait until you know what your next step is Right. My big paintings can take a couple of months. Patience is a big part of my work. Are there things you paint that rely more on what you have seen in other paintings than photos or direct observation Water feels forced if you try to get it exact- ly like a photo. So I do it freehand. Its all in the gesture. Sometimes when I paint leaves for example I tie a few small brushes togeth- er. If you try to paint every leaf it feels tense or fussy. Is mark-making more important for you than accuracy The gesture and the brushwork have to suc- ceed for one of my paintings to be finished. My works are not finished until I think its a good painting. Some sit for months and some never make it out of my studio. As I leave I thank my gracious host for taking time out of his schedule to talk with me on a summer Sunday. He laughs at this. Well I wouldnt be in the studio today. Never on a Sunday.

M eet Aaron Priestthe Lee- based photographer known for his stellar high-resolution panoramas and timelapses. With 18 years of professional experience his work has been featured everywhere from Space.com to CBS News see Summerguide 2015 page 79. Here we ask him to take us behind the curtain. How do you sneak up on the stars Planning practice and patience The more work you put in before shooting the easi- er the post-processing is after. Both panora- mas and timelapses require shooting a lot of photos before rendering them on the com- puter later. How do you know when youre in the groove The night sky feels much more alive to me than the day although I love shooting both. From stars and planets to satellites and the International Space Station theres just so much activity in the sky at night that we cant see during the day. The only time I dont like is harsh mid-afternoon light. My favorite subjects are the colors of the sky when the sun is low for sunrises and sunsets and particularly the Milky Way at night. Its usually a year or two after Im done with an image that I can actually see it for the first time. Those are the ones that be- come my favorite for a little while. When things really click I think of Psalm 19 from The Complete Jewish Bible The heavens declare the glory of God the dome of the sky speaks the work of his hands. Every day it utters speech every night it reveals knowledge. What about the Maine landscape inspires you I was born and grew up in Maine. My grand- father David Priest was a trapper and a game warden. My parents took my broth- er and me camping every summer. From the potato fields of Aroostook County to the rocky coastline to Mt. Katahdin and the woods in between I love whats wild about Maine. I rarely venture southwest into more populatedareasaslightpollutionfromcities at night obscures the stars and Milky Way. interview by becca carifio Its usually a year or two after Im done with an image that I can actually see it for the first time. 59 Middle Street Portland Me 04101 207.775.2238 888.403.0816 oldporttile.com Old POrt SPecialty tile cO 48 p o r t l a n d monthly magazine Passions What do you do after you set up while the camera is shooting for hours at a time I eat sleep read. Catch up on social media if I have cell service. Often I shoot with an- other friend or two and I enjoy taking shots of them with a second camera. Lets get geeky. What kind of gear do you use Nikon D700 D810 DSLRs and a range of lenses from 10.5mm fisheye to 400mm but my favorite is a Nikon 14-24mm f2.8 wide angle. I have a Panoneed robotic panning head eMotimo 3-axis motion control on a Dynamic Perception Stage One slider Pro- mote Control Ramper Pro and DslrDash- board on an Android tablet. I use a Goal Zero Sherpa 100 solar battery for power. Have you had shoots that didnt work out When youre shooting heaven does hell ever intervene Quite frequently Im driven crazy by dew frost rain clouds fog headlights police hikers wildlife dead batteries full memory cards equipment malfunctions you name it What are the challenges of long-exposure Everything is more complicated in the dark. You have to operate your equipment more by feel than by sight. Its easy to drop a cable or lens cap and not realize it or find it. Long shutter speeds are a bigger drain on batteries particularly when tempera- tures drop at night and dewfrost is a fre- quent nemesis. Headlamps and flashlights can easily ruin a shot.

None of them is especially dangerous but can certainly be startling when unexpected. Generally wildlife is more fearful of you and if you are aware of your surroundings and dont show aggression or interfere with their young they leave you alone. How many photos are we talking about to create your effects At night most of my spherical panora- mas with a fisheye are three to five pho- tos while some of my gigapixel panoramas with HDR and focus stacking are made up of over 2000 images. Timelapse also varies depending on how many hours you shoot your interval between shots and how many seconds of video footage you need. Images like that range from 100 photos or so for a stacked image of star trails to 4000 to 5000 photos for 360 timelapse movies. Whats your dream project Ive been working on it for the past decade little by little. Ive nearly achieved it a 360 timelapse over a 24-hour period. Ive also dreamed of shooting a spherical panorama from space. Still working on that. What is the most unscripted moment or accident that made the most beautiful result Occasionally catching a stray headlamp car headlight or especially a meteor and having it come out great in the frame. Some things like meteors dont offer a retake. How does light pollution affect your work and what lengths do you go to go avoid it It affects the night sky greatly in populat- ed areas like cities and occasionally even in the country with a very bright street lamp or commercial building if its not properly di- rected. We waste a lot of energy lighting up the sky instead of directing it where we real- ly need it and interrupt the migration and sleeping patterns of wildlife. If your favorite sky photo were a symphony which one would it be Thats easy. I actually titled my self-portrait on the lifeguard chair of Sand Beach in Aca- dia National Park Milky Way Symphony published in Portland Magazines 2015 Sum- merguide. It was taken with the help of some attendees at a workshop just for fun.

The casual loss of Stephen Etniers studio in Harpswell illus- trates the emergency that compels this undertaking. Before more knowledge comes crashing down or even worse drifts away without comment is there a way we can cherish Maine painting across its visual history A Catalog Maine Painters A CatalogA Catalog 52 p o r t l a n d monthly magazine Honour Mack has an MFA from Yale University she is a professor of painting at MECA. Mack has been a visiting artist and critic at Colby College Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art Massachusetts College of Art University of Washington in Seattle and the University of Pennsylvania. randomizing algorithm T his curated 48-page print feature Maine Painters A Catalog spills edgelessly into the internet by de- sign so it can keep growing. Its not a list but rather a startan opening remark in what we hope will be a great conversation across time. This catalog of Maine painters 1 isnt rigged. Artists or galleries have not paid to be listed. Moreover 2 the catalog has input from both scholarly and popular sources. This is not intended to be the last word but instead is to suggest a larger catalog that will develop and deepen across time a beach- head. We do not claim this is all-inclusive. Instead its a door flung open. Using mul- tiple sources we approached a synthesis of painters of consequence whose work has had an impact on Maine and on our psyche. We then forwarded this to curators Bruce Brown Honour Mack and Andres Verzosa asking them to add more names. We asked for new contemporary work to be consid- ered in addition to more traditional mas- ters. As for the size of the illustrations we let our column width make the determination. Art exists in great time beyond a single life span so we chose not to present the work of the artists in this catalog in chronologi- cal order to avoid the need to determine an artists relevance. As easy it would be to al- phabetize we wanted to free readers from the need to check off names as they read along. Go to Online Extras for a look-up guide. So just what is a randomizing algo- rithm As a test we put the days of the week through the randomizer and the random- ized new week started with Wednesday.

We can provide the exquisite con- templative visuals with a finite closure that paradoxically explodes into infinity while separately the catalog can grow shapeshift- ing and expanding with your every insight.

Completely unlike his later abstract and then figurative paintings in wood they bespoke of an energy and life force raw and elec- tric. Still you could see his irreverent use of what might have been apparently around and available for paints like what appears to be house paint and stretchers made from cast-off wood...A precursor to an affinity for found and readily available materials not worry- ing about their durability of archival-ness but more concerned with getting at it and making in the now.

It has long been a meta- phor for deep philosophical investigation and emotional explorations. As an abstract painter my im- agery exists outside of a narrative or didactic framework and as a result I find inspiration in questions that address the confluence of belief systems the role of spirituality in art and the possibility of creat- ing a transcendent object.

IntervIew by ColIn w. Sargent I ts a crisp afternoon in the Spurwink section on the Cape Elizabeth coast. What invisible hand is conducting us inland from Route 77 and the Spurwink Meeting House only to slow to a stop in front of an understated sage-green ranch house in broad daylight Surprise Jonathan Edwards the folk star who brought us Sunshine dur- ing the darkest days of the Vietnam War lives here. With an Ed Harris intensity to his eyes he welcomes us at the door and leads us barefoot downstairs to his studio through a maze of photos and awards to a comfortable leather couch. Like a shad- ow his dog Holly jumps up beside him. Through the windows in squares of green are the raised beds of the Victory garden weve heard he prizes out back. First im- pression He doesnt look like a marathon runner whos just finished a race. Hes about to start one. Youre from Northern Minnesota.

This other snapshot is me. It was taken the day I was adopted. Its the cover of my new album Tomorrows Child. Edwards seated on his kiddie seat with the furious seriousness of the very young ex- tends both hands toward the viewer search- ing. Produced by Darrell Scott and accom- panied by Nashville cats Vince Gill Jerry Douglas Shawn Colvin and Alison Krauss the album is Edwardss springboard to live performances that will zigzag across venues vast and intimate Stonington Opera House in Maine Birchmere in Alexandria Virgin- ia Timberline Lodge Amphitheater in Gov- ernment Camp Oregon and One Longfel- low Square in Portland September 9 and 10. Searching seems to be a motif in Tomorrows Child. Yes. Everything I do comes to bear on what I do and what I write. One of the striking songs on your new CD is I Wish I Was A Mole In The Ground written and recorded in 1928 by Bascom Lamar Lunsford. It tunnels into your memory has North Carolina roots is gently subversive. Is that what attracted you to it I wish I was a mole in the ground Yes I wish I was a mole in the ground If Is a mole in the ground Id root that mountain down And I wish I was a mole in the ground. This song just spoke to me. Joe Walsh who lives in Portland is on the board at One Longfellow Square and teaches at Berklee College of Music in Boston suggested he arrange it and I record it. Its about heart- break sadness and defiance. When James Taylors new album was released this summer it topped the Billboard 200. It was hard not to think theyre looking for a new Tony Bennett.

Ive been 20 years playing there. Jonathan West is a dear friend. According to urban legend you almost didnt get to record your monster hit single. It was late one night in the early a.m. We were recording an album and the sound en- gineer and I were the only ones in the stu- dio. Recording with magnetic tapes was very young then. He inadvertently record- ed over one of the songs hed spent the af- ternoon recording. He looked for it every- where everywhere. Ironically the song was called Please Find Me. Finally he gave up and said Do you have something else thats three minutes long I said yeah. A last-min- ute substitution. I recorded it with the bass came back and added the track with my 12-string then a third track with drums. It was Sunshine. What are your 30 best seconds in show business Im standing at the foot of the Washington Monument in 1971 at a huge anti-war rally. It was a rose-colored dawn in the Potomac River Valley. I had just written Sunshine. People had just started hearing it. He waits two beats. That song was the perfect song to play that morning. What are your worst 30 seconds in show business I was opening for Pat Sky at Boston Uni- versity or BC. As I neared the stage a guy in the audience yelled You suck. What to do You do the best you can. At the micro- phone I said Thank you very much. Usu- ally they dont say that until Ive played three or four songs. Tell us one time you were forced to play Sunshine when you didnt want to. Theres never been a time. I have always been one-hundred-percent grateful. If I had never had another song Id be thrilled to leave this world remembered for that one song. Sandy Owen hands Edwards a glass of water.

Whered you go after you lived in Boston In 1973 I lived in Nova Scotia farming 680 acres. I lived there for eight years. My daughter Grace was born at the top of a hill in our cabin in 1976. One day I got a phone call. It was Emmylou Harris calling from L.A. calling me out of this farm. She said What are you doing up there She asked me to sing with her on her Elite Hotel album. Two years ago I took Grace back to see where she was born. When we pulled in I caught sight of a neighbor behind a team of horses pulling a manure spreader. When he recognized me he brightened.

It was a small candy basket woven with ash splints. The buyer paid her 25 cents and fittingly little Clara spent her earnings on candy. Eight decades later shes still making baskets but today her finely crafted pieces can garner hundreds of dollars. Theyve been featured in many exhibitions including a one-woman show at the Farn- sworth Museum in Rockland and are in mu- seumsandprivatecollectionsacrosstheUnit- S e p t e m b e r 2 0 1 5 1 0 9 Clara has stayed true to her grandmothers demand during a lifetime of weaving reach- ing for perfection with every twist and turn of every strand in every basket she makes. She weaves those strands into a surprising array of forms including a cornucopia of brightly col- ored baskets shaped like fruits and vegetables. Jennifer Neptune director of the Maine In- dian Basketmakers Alliance MIBA sounds gleeful when talking about Claras baskets When you go to Claras table at the annu- al Native American Festival in Bar Har- bor youre excited because you know there ed States and beyond. Clara grew up on the Passamaquod- dy Reservation at Pleasant Point Sipayik in Perry. She lived with her grand parents Alice a Penobscot and Joseph Neptune. It was Alice who first showed Clara how how to prepare brown ash splints how to pick clean and braid sweet grass and how to weave the two materials together into a basket. From her she also learned the im- portance of doing quality work If I made a mistake Clara recalls shed say fix it and I did 53 Bay StWinslow ME 207 877-6688 www.asiancafeme.com Open 11am - 9pm Every Day Eat In -Take Out Delivery ThaiVietnamese Japanese Korean Cuisine 110 p o r t l a n d monthly magazine S e p t e m b e r 2 0 1 5 1 1 1 Maine Life BasketsfromeBayBackgroundBlakegumprecht will be something different.

In 2002 the National Endowment for the Arts awarded Clara a Heritage Fellow- ship honoring her artistic excellence as well as her contribution to our nations tradition- al arts heritage. Clara has played a major role in the revitalization of Maine Indian basket- ry. According to Theresa Secord who served as MIBAs director for two decades Clara was one of our founding members and she is the one person who taught every year in the MIBA masterapprentice program for at least 20 years. She is really the matriarch of MIBA in so many ways. Jennifer Neptune elabo- rates Here she is this amazing amazing art- ist and yet so humble about herself and her work.

From staFF wire rePorts W e should remember that the real man behind this collec- tion is David Driskell writes the Washington Post about the Smithson- ian Institutions exhibit that is sparking so much controversy Conversations African and American Artworks in Dialogue. This is the very David C. Driskell co-cu- rator of the Smithsonian show and for dec- ades the scholar and art consultant who has brought the Camille and William Cosby col- lection to an elite sphere that so many Main- ers revere as a likable Falmouth resident world-class painter and curatorial expert on world painting. Driskell has been friends with Bill and Camille Cosby since Cosby called him in 1976 see our interview The Prime of David Driskell Sept. 2001. No doubt uncomfortable with the controversy Driskell has remained eloquently si- lent. Consider Artnet News We also reached out to David Driskell the co- curator of the show who is also a long- time friend and advisor to Cosby as well as to Cosbys attorney Marty Sing- er for comment about whether the ac- cusations have impacted the museum show. Neither responded. If you were in Driskells position would you respond As an index to the controversy about Bill Cosby as he re- lates to art Artnet reports In a Novem- ber 15 radio interview conducted at the Smithsonian that took the term awk- ward silence to an entirely new level NPR reporter Scott Simon talked with Bill and Camille Cosby in detail about the 62 artworks they loaned to the show. At the end of the four-minute seg- ment viewers were treated to roughly 30 seconds of dead air when Simon asked Cosby to comment on the allegations as Cosby shook his head no and wagged his finger at Simon This dead air time was according to the Washington Post perhaps the most significant dead air in the history of National Public Radio. Then theres Public split over Cos- bys art at the Smithsonian by Brett Zong- ker of the Associated Press which appeared in the Post. Here once again Driskells name comes up most respectfully with a quote from him tantalizingly absent. Kudos to our Flash editor Diane Hudson who had the moxie to ask Driskell what the situation was when she covered his art opening at a Portland gallery. Here is Driskell thoughtful and it must be as- sumed hurt As a curator hired by the Smithsonian in connection with this exhibit I have been asked not to speak publicly about the con- troversy until my contract ends on January 16. You have not seen any comments from me about the exhibit as all the interviewers want to talk to me about Bill Cosby. I have no information about that and cannot speak to it. I can however speak about the art and tell you that the art speaks for itself. This work by major American artists including Beaufort Delaney Jacob Lawrence Eliza- beth Catlett Romare Berden Faith Ring- gold Driskell himself Alma Thomas and Henry Ossawa Tanner has never before been seen in public and may never be pro- vided that opportunity again. An extension of the American canon the exhibit provides an invaluable educational opportunity that should not be lost The Smithsonian re- ports attendance has more than doubled since the opening of this exhibit and I do not think that is be- cause of the contro- versy surrounding it.

In fact in terms of the incidence of col- or variants Ive seen more blue lobsters than any other. We become aware of these through calls from the fish- ermen whove caught them or from the press. Most of the color variants end up on display somewhere. The Oceanarium in Bar Harbor often has some. As for the moonglow lobsters that amaze with their pearly iridescence White albi- no appears to be the least common. The al- bino does not turn red when cooked I have only seen a few of them in my career. All other lobsters turn red when cooked. The blue ones turn a bit more pink than red. Then from out of nowhere he drops the bomb. By the way we have bred blue lob- sters by mating a blue male with a blue fe- male. All the offspring are blue. If they can be created how soon will they be marketed and one day guiltlessly eaten Blue lobsters may be trending on the fu- ture in a world that doesnt blink at char- cuterie imagine the trendy menusin De- cember Blue Xmas with twin lobsters Take home more than a memory 48 Union Wharf Portland Maine 04101 toll free 800.556.2783 We welcome walk-in orderslarge or small and gladly supply restaurants and caterers.

Below the roil of the sea the actual in- cidence of these is a guess but its likely one in several million in the lobster harvest. The Brittany blue is a European lobster a close cousin of ours. These lobsters are genetical- ly so close to the Maine lobster that we can breed the two and create a hybrid.

By ClairE Z. CramEr Everybody must get scones Morning tempta- tions at Tandem Coffee and Bakery. Hungry EyE 120 p o r t l a n d monthly magazine FromLeFtFILeJoaquInmaLLmann found some great people through these pro- grams. Some of whom are now dazzling diners at some of the hot spots elsewhere downtown as this story shows. Our greatest challenge as bread bakers is consistency says Pray. At the same time we love to bake so were always looking for new ideas and inspiration. I love to travel specifically to visit bakeries. In Paris friends recommended Des Pains et des Idees in the Marais. There are lines out their door all day long. My favorite from their shop was a pain au levain roll with savory additions like ba- con and bleu cheese. tasty Career U-tUrns Bakers are like doctors says Catherine Co- t-Eliot pastry chef at Portland Patisserie on Market Street where dainty and precise French confections including cylindrical framboisiers and colorful macarons dazzle on platters and stands. We all have our spe- cialties. Im really not all that into breads. Which is not to say she doesnt know how. In fact Cot-Eliot 34 spent five years making bread and pastries at Standard Baking. Bakings my second career she says. I have a degree in architecture from Ohio State. But then I did a 10-month course at the French Culinary Institute in Man- hattan after which she ended up bak- ing at one of the Financier Patisseries in the financial district. I have a French last name Cot a French Canadian back- ground and a grandmother in Goulds- boro but I dont speak French. Her husband Frederic Eliot does hes chef at Petite Jacqueline which is owned like Portland Patisserie by the talented Steve and Michelle Corry. So how did Cath- erine meet this Parisian-born chef AtO.S.U.actually.Cookingisasecondca- reer for Fred too. He was the head of the uni- versitysITdepartmentandjustbeforeIleftfor a semester in France I went to ask him about goodplacestovisit.ThecouplemovedtoNew York where Catherine launched her pastry careeer and Fred cooked all overPrune Le CirquetheOakRoom. When they started a family they decid- ed to move to Portland. Frederics nighttime schedule dovetailed nicely with Catherines dawn baking routine in terms of sharing child-care duties. I didnt want a desk job she says but I feel my architecture training is useful to me as a baker. Im designing and creating things every day. She sure is. Her tender buttery bourbon W e marvel at the sheer number of restaurants in the Forest City but how about the bakeries Portland is the center of the universe for from-scratch flakey buttery first-class baked treats. Hot fresh scones lighter-than-air croissants deadly sweet sticky buns cookies breads and rolls are baked every day in small thriv- ing hives all over town. Magnet for talent Think of Standard Baking Company as the Harvard of Portland bakeries. People with sweet dreams and magic hands come to them. And if they leave Standards leg- end grows deeper in the culture. The cal- iber and availability of professional baking training has improved vastly since we first opened says Alison Pray who with hus- band Matt James owns Standard Baking now 20 years old. Their croissants morning buns and baguettes were the original bou- langerie delicacies that set a very high bar in Portland. Weve been really fortunate to have i went gluten-free myself about eight years ago says Bevin mcnulty owner andbakerofBam Bam BakeryonCom- mercial Street. i found the products on the market werent very delicious. Bevin began experimenting with her own recipes and studying alterna- tive baking. gluten is the protein in wheat thats what binds your bread and gives it elasticity and keep it to- gether. We use xantham gum to re- place this quality along with precise combinations of other non-wheat flours depending on the item. gluten-free does have something of an image problem. the biggest misperception is that it tastes gross dry and gross and boring says mc- nulty. one bite of a Funky monkey peanut butter chocolate chip and coconut cookie should clear this up. its delicate rich and intense. Bam Bams most popular items are whoopie pies in the summer and lemon bars and cookies in general. look for pumpkin whoopies with ma- ple filling this fall.

She and husband Belfast native Ian Dutch turn out delicious breakfast and lunch creations and bake ev- ery bagel biscuit and loaf from scratch six days a week. Lucys croissant is balanced in flakiness and cakey tenderness. She came by her skills by hands-on restaurant work. Ive cooked around I baked a lot I collect reci- pes and cookbooks. Dutchs turns out elegant versions of simple things. Even buttered whole-wheat toast with their own spectacular blueberry jam will make you take notice. There are ex- cellent and distinctive whole-wheat loaves all over town including at nearby Big Sky Bakery. But Lucys has a soulful charm that makes a great sandwich. ChoiCes ChoiCes I f you roam the citys bakeries youll find exotic surprises at Ten Ten Pi on Cumberland Avenue at the bottom of Munjoy Hill.

Try almond croissants dusted with matcha green tea confectioners sugar tiny financier-like tartlets called vis- itadines and bite-size dark double-chocolate sake cakes shaped like fat corks. Among the trends here to stay in- teresting use of rye flour in sweets Standard Bakings chocolate rye cookies for one and delicate dust- ings of sea salt crystals and seeds on sweet as well as savory treats. Its a daily struggle for me to not put them on literally everything says Briana Holt. Even old favorites are up in lights here. Visualize something you never tire of. Say its a fresh croissant or an oatmeal raisin cookie. The city is your oyster You can seek the perfect cookie forever without ever hav- ing to endure disappointment. Rosemonts bakery stocks its three city markets every day and their cookies are fantastic. Stan- dard Bakings oatmeal cookie is as sweet as a happy childhood. Big Sky is always there for you when youre running errands in Monument Square. A recent stop at Two Fat Cats on India Street turned up a sur- prise. This little bakeshop once a spin-off of Standard Baking but now independent has a rather provenal facade in a pleasing shade of Dijon Poupon. You descend into a cellar-like space filled with racks of pies and cakesand spot the cookies On the way home with your oatmeal raisin prize you discover bits of dried apricot in addition to the raisins.

This is a call to arms for a historic preser- vation organization or just a lover of beau- tiful singular spaces to take on the role of next steward of the Hugh McCulloch House that has been so beloved and so carefully curated by Enid and Arthur Thoms. Dont worrythis isnt a museum though it could be one. It is a wonderful family home. With its dapper yellow clapboards smart 130 p o r t l a n d monthly magazine House of tHe MontH white trim and cheery eccentric dormers The Hugh McCulloch house at 160 Summer Street is a ship captains home among ship captains homes its green lawn descend- ing gracefully to the serpentine blue curves of the Kennebunk River. Here Capt. Hugh McCulloch and his vast coterie of artisans built scores of historic vessels that plied the worlds seas among them the Rubicon the Sabine and the Advance. Captain Mc- Culloch also owned Green Folly and Goat islands in Cape Porpoise before Goat Is- land Light was built in the 1830s according to brazoriaroots.com. D eeper still is the continuing cultur- al impact of Capt. McCullochs son. The second-floor bedroom is the birthplace of his son Secretary of the U.S. Treasury Hugh McCulloch who served un- der three presidents beginning with Abra- ham Lincoln. In the famous engraving of the murdered presidents death bed Mc- Culloch was one of the figures standing watch over him. And we are on watch now for someone who wont tear out or discard the French wallpaper blast away the secret passageway to the left of the chimney in the music room rip out the original Indian shutters on both floors or raze the upstairs ballroom that made this tony house the talk of the town. This striking Georgian home built in 1782 has been reduced from 914000 in 2014 to 685000. If you love beautiful old things now is the time to make your move. Some people call this The Hugh Mc- Culloch House some call it The House With the Ballroom says Enid Thoms the Secre- tarys great granddaughter who lives here with her husband Arthur and sparkles as she gives the tour. On the second floor two original paneled walls swing up on hinges to the ceiling to cre- ate the ballroom. Ill show you. She fair- ly races to it. This is the famous wall. The whole wall lifts upthese are the hooks in the ceiling that held it up for the dances. Aha Open concept before open concept. The music room or salon features an original window seat that looks out to what was once part of a shad- ed porch and is now a foyer. A pair of priceless gaslights in turquoise majol- ica and brass adorn this spacious for- mal and yet cozy room the dark piano hav- ing crept between the windows waiting for its next recital. Not only is the historic wall- paper visible in a closet the younger wall- paper front-and-center in the music room is surely 19th century. The house is filled with artifacts col- lected by many generations of world trav- elers. A Simon Willard clock greets guests. Not just any Simon Willard tall clock. Its painted face was personally endorsed by Simon Willard to Hugh McCulloch. As we enter the dining room in viv- id coral with creamy trim we see a flint- lock over the fireplace. Enid stops musing. We were married right here on December CourtesyColdwellbankerresidentialColinsargent3 Hidden Asset S e p t e m b e r 2015 131 22 1962 she says muffling a giggle. The minister was backed up to the fireplace. We stood in the middle of the room. It was a small affair in the midst of a big blizzard Of the McCulloch Shipyard the grass- covered ways softened by time slip into the river framed in the wall of windows of the updated kitchen she says Do you know the granite locks in the Kennebunk Riv- er When they were finished building a hull here theyd lock in a moon tide and take the hullstothePort.InKennebunkporttheves- sels were rigged. Wistfully she adds Four ships built here were lost in the War of 1812. Another ship was lost in a storm off the coast of Kennebunkport. Hugh McCulloch the Secretary of the Treasury attended Bowdoin for two years then left by horseback for Indiana. He worked his way up and became presi- dent of the Bank of Fort Wayne. Then he was named First Comptroller of Currency by Lincoln and succeeded as Secretary of the Treasury. The house and much of Captains Row Summer Street in Kennebunk are on the National Register of Historic Places. I graduated from Orono in 1959 Enid says. Recruited by the CIA at school I signed my life away with a 37-page doc- ument and went directly to Washington D.C. My husband and I met in Washing- ton at the CIAs Foreign Broadcast Infor- mation Service. We were both editors. The FBIS had listening posts that were like parentheses around the Soviet Union. I worked in the USSR section. He worked in the Asia sector. The romance deepened with a further as- signment. We honeymooned in Saigon. Their shared love of retiring here re- verberates in every cared-for room. Just as we leave she says proudly There isnt a straight door anywhere. My mother al- ways said this house rises and falls with the tides. If youre not wondering why were shar- ing this sentiment you may very well be the right buyer. Four bedrooms 2.5 baths. Two- and-a-half acres of waterfront including a dock. Taxes are 7729. n I nside a closet in the music room is a very large fragment of ancient wallpaper that according to family tradition was the original wallpaper for the entire room and has resided here as long as the mcCullochs. this delight- ful attraction appears to have been applied directly to the wallboard. Its incendiary and naughtya celebration of In- dependence Day 1775. One of the figures grinds the words british Laws under his shoe. A neoclassic british warrior holds his head in his hands ruined. A son of Liberty shares an engaging conversation with a Native American. We asked wallpaper scholar and conservator Barry Blanchard for a close analysis this pattern is referred to as pillar and arch blanchard says. It was popular in english design in the 18th centu- ry. After the American revolution versions of the pattern included iconic images representing the new nation and breaking of the bonds with the british empire. most like- ly theyd have been printed in France although theres a chance an American company could have made a knock off. theres a sample of this same paper in the wallpaper archives of Historic New england.

Scroll down to find your wallpaper. the Cooper Hewitt museum in NY has a large wallpaper collection as well. If you do a search for pillar and Arch wall- paper at Cooper Hewitt and Sacred WashingtonCooper Hewitt you can find some links to historical perspectives on this type of wallpaper. Also a book by Catherine Lynn called Wallpaper In America has a section on this period. She has a photo of this same paper and other similar ones with additional informa- tion on the history behind it.

Chrysa was a pleasaure to work with and did a fantastic job of marketing our house and helping us to get the best price for our property. Her knowledge of the market and condence made us feel very comfortable in listing our house with her. She was aggressive but not overbearing and respected our needs and desires. Her ideas onn staging made all the difference in the overall marketing of our home and property. Due to her excellent marketing strategies we were able to sell our property in one week. What often is a very stressful process was overall very smooth and stress free thanks to Chrysas knowledge and guidence. We highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their property. Len Leslie wallace Chrysa specializes in relocation vacation luxury properties. She also has the network to market your luxury or historic property internationallya necessity in our global economy. For well over a year now many of us have seen the pink van of Eastern Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning driving around York and Cumberland counties and we may have asked whats it all about. To clear up this question I spent some time with Diane Gadbois at her home and asked her some very personal questions that I am sure were difcult to answer. You see George and Diane Gadbois are private people who give more than their share back to the community and the last thing they want is to be noticed for their generosity. They started Eastern Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning 40 years ago on a wish and a prayer and now have the largest family-run carpet cleaning and water damage restoration company in the area. Back to the pink van If you notice on the rear side panels are the words Susan G. Komen for the Cure. This national founda- tion has brought forth womens cancer awareness promoted ex- tensive cancer research and although not exclusive to the cause is nationally recognized by the color pink. The cost to place this name on the van will not be discussed here but let us say the yearly donation is signicant and the proceeds all go to the cure for womens cancer. Diane was introduced to breast cancer early in life when her mother had a radical mastectomy. She remembers her mothers doctor telling her sister and her one of you will have cancer. Not a pleasant thought at the time but it stuck with Diane and saved her life. Twice after the normal tests and screenings for cancer Diane received a clean bill of health and relatively soon after while doing a self-examination found a lump. Not once but twice Fortunately they were found in time and Diane is doing ne but she wants to get the message out that as important as it is to get regular screenings it is equally as important to be your own advocate and make double sure with a self-examination. So when you see the pink Eastern van go by remember its just Diane reminding you even if you have had the tests be your own advocate and make a regular self-examination part of your life because it could save it.

So much of William Shakespeares life is unknown to us but his lifes work is familiar to people all over the world. Isnt that something He wrote Mac- beth 400 years ago and here we are today at Parkside High beginning our study of that very play. Mr. Talbot looked just a tad put out. Back to the file already But Ms. Stein pressed on extemporane- ously probably glad to give her arms a rest. I remember one of the themes of this play is ambition and now that Im thinking about it it seems to me that Shakespeare who was a playwright trying to forge a career in an iffy business must have understood what a powerful drive ambition can be and that probably helped him write the Macbeth character as a fully-formed human being. I made a note of that. Camden famous school-wide for her flowing mane of perfect blonde hair and for using people and then throwing them away like dental floss must have heard that tid- bit even though she was watching a horror movie on her iPad with her earbuds plugged in underneath all the hair. She snapped her fingers. Taylor her top handmaiden leaned forward from the desk behind her. Camden said Write that down. Write that down Oh. Ah. I see. Camden wanted to give the impression to Mr. Talbot and Ms. Stein that she was paying attention and she wanted to keep Taylor on her toes. Just last year all she was allowed to do for Camden was give her her dessert at lunch and now this year she picks out the horror movies that Camden watches in school. If that isnt the American Dream in action I dont know what is. Of course dim smile perking up his saggy face. She said Really I didnt know. Oh yes. said Mr. Talbot. Macbeth. Ev- ery year at this time. Ms. Stein said Its been a while since Ive read it so Im going to need some time to prepare. Oh theres no need dear. No need at all. Did I noticetheskinoverMs.Steinstem- ples tighten ever so slightly when she heard dear How would you know You werent there. Forget I asked. Mr. Talbot opened a squeaky drawer low on his vintage oak desk and lifted out a tome that looked like a Bible with a water reten- tion issue. He said You can use my Mac- beth file and dropped itthwomponto his desk narrowly missing the iPad. Ms. Stein gulped.Thank you. Im sure itll be a big help. Mr. Talbot said Well lets see. You mean now No time like the present. I just meant I thought Id have a day or two to get settled in and Oh give it a try. Jump right in. Ill intro- duce you. And within a minute Ms. Stein picked the Macbeth file up from Mr. Talbots desk and started reading to us. What fun. Noth- ing else quickens the pulse like listening to someone read unfamiliar material written in aleadenstyle.Whenshegottothepartabout the play being written in iambic pentame- ter Mr. Talbot clapped the five-beat rhythm looking happy that he could still clap. I scanned the room from my observation post in the back to see how the lesson was going over Thirty-two kids looked ready to go nighty-night. Ms. Stein kept reading. The Bard ar- ranged words to suit his needs and desires whether to create rhythm or to highlight phrases or to make a characters speech pat- tern unique. At times he inverted the typ- ical word order of English speech. For in- stance a character might say Goes he instead of He goes. Rudy lifted a well-muscled arm and said Ms. Stein Ive got to go. Ms. Stein said Go You mean to the Bad. Mr. Talbot said Youre a sophomore in high school now Rudy and its time you learned self-control. See if you can hold on. her face. She pushed her Clark Kent glasses up too while her hand was in the area. She was wearing clunky motor- cycle boots a colorful batik skirt or was it a tablecloth a powder blue mens dress shirt from the dollar rack at Goodwill and a fuzzy pink cardigan she inherited from her great-aunt after the 23 cats that lived with the old girl ganged up on her one night and smothered her while she slept. She looked fabulous. Old Mr. Talbot bent over his desk like Bob Cratchit was squinting at his iPad and trying to do something mind-blowingly complicated like check his school email. She said Mr. Talbot Nothing from him. Not now. He was busy. Intense concentration re- quired. Barely breathing. Emergency call.Bomb squad. Tick tick tick. Got to defuse it. She said Im your intern and smiled. Snip the blue wire. Waitmaybe the green. She advanced on him with her hand ex- tended and finally he blinked and said Who Sue Stein. Your intern. As they shook hands he said Oh my goodness. Welcome to Parkside High Ms. Stein. Im Milton Talbot. Id been paying attention to what was going on in the front of the room and hadnt noticed my English binder sliding down the desktop. It tipped over the edge and slapped the floor which made Ms. Stein look my way. Oh she said. Hello there. Hi. This is one of your sophomore English students Schuyler Watson. Its Spencer Wilson. Nice to meet you Spencer. Right I said. Spencer. Nice to meet you too Ms. Stein. Other kids were showing up for English now but she kept talking to me which was refreshing. She said Im a student at the university and Im going to be here for a while doing an internship teaching Macbeth said Mr. Talbot a HERMAN SBOOKS STATIONERYS________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________ Bar Harbor Boothbay Harbor Camden Freeport Portland www.shermans.com 800-371-8128 Books Gifts for Thoughtful Living Great Outdoors Port Mag_Layout 1 872015 1017 AM Page 1 S e p t e m b e r 2015 143 Fiction Taylor makes herself sick worrying that her movie selection might displease Her High- ness but thats the price she pays for sta- tus. Todays movie seemed to be a winner. Phew. From what I could glimpse it had something to do with dead teenagers. May- be youve seen it. Ms. Stein said The ambition that drove Shakespeare to make a name for himself with his plays was like the ambition that drove Macbeth to make a name for himself by murdering Duncan and Mr. Talbot said All well and good. Thank you Ms. Stein.Now please return to the lesson. Thats what Ms. Stein did but she looked a tad put out herself to be reined in just when she was starting to roll. I wrote make a name for himself in my notebook. Then I leaned on my elbows my face in my hands and closed my eyes so I could concentrate on the lecture. Not. I took a nap. When I came to I checked out the room again. Some of the kids were awake but their heads were doing the slow orbit thing and there was drooling. Ms. Stein read In the year 1603 King James VI of Scotland ascended to the throne of England at which time he also became known as King James I. Londoners of the day became as interested in Scottish culture as students at Parkside High School are to- day. Well theres a meaningful benchmark. And the bell rang. Rise and shine The other kids left but I stayed behind for a minute to look at my notes.While I was reading them I highlighted ambition make a name for himself and theatre and when I did that the seed of an idea took root in the mental soil inside the cerebral flowerpot on the psychological windowsill of my minds kitchen right next to the vir- tual spider plant. n This is chapter one of Brian Dalys Toil Trouble a novel about a high-school sophomore who thinks hes put the Macbeth Curse on his schools produc- tion of The Scottish Play.
