Each spring, Barb Loken’s dad would get a special permit from the city of Minneapolis so he could bring home a small piglet. Then for the next six weeks, he would carry the pig around to different elementary schools and teach children about farm animals. He loved to show off the intelligence of the pig, which could hit several different locks with its snout in order to open its feed box. At this point, a flag would snap up that proclaimed, HOGS ARE BEAUTIFUL!

In April Monkitree, 263 Water Street in Gardiner will present an exhibition featuring the work of Ken Gross entitled Lost Maps of Norumbega. Ken Gross, cartographer and artist, moved to Maine in 2010. It was a foreign land to him and ripe for exploration. Like early explorers searching to fill in the gaps of geographical knowledge of the region then called Norumbega, Ken began exploring his new home. As an artist working in block print, ink illustration and watercolor, Ken has created a collection of the many small wonders he has found exploring the state of Maine.
