“Shell Shocked,” by Jamie Spooner.

Salt Pond Studio presents paintings by Friendship artist Jamie Spooner in the solo show “By the Big Blue Sea,” running Sept. 9 to 19, with an opening reception on Sept. 10.

Tinged with humor and fun, Spooner’s bold and colorful work makes a strong statement. Big and bold is Spooner’s artistic calling card. Paintings of dogs, friends and other creatures by the sea all are ablaze with distinct and unique personalities.

Salt Pond Studio is at 522 Cushing Road, Friendship. Call 207-691-5787 for more information.
