EAC’s Sunday Afternoons at the Arts Center series will continue at 3 pm, Sunday, February 20 with Eastport artist Roland LaVallee, owner of Crow Tracks woodcarving studio. LaVallee will speak about building a life as an artist in Downeast Maine. He’ll touch on his process development, learning from other area artists, the buying and viewing public, and selling and developing artworks. The talk will conclude with a question and answer period.
LaVallee grew up in Connecticut, and started working in Eastport in 1977. He opened his carving studio in 1984, and markets his work both online and in person at the studio.
