Fine artist Jill Marie Langdon is showing new work at the Rockland Art Market all summer long. After a two-week hiatus, the market will return Aug. 18 to run weekly through Sept. 15, weather permitting.

Langdon has been painting almost her entire life. From finger painting to formal drawing classes to fine art degree programs in college, she has always been expressive and experimental while being dedicated to beauty. Langdon uses a variety of media, but her main focus is using oil paints with floral designs. She relocated to Maine almost 15 years ago, after being astounded by the beauty of the Midcoast, and currently resides in Thomaston.

At the market, Langdon offers everything from original works to hand-painted rugs, slates and rocks — fine art in all price ranges, starting at just a few dollars. Her art also is available as prints and on greeting cards. Langdon will teach painting classes this fall at Oceanside High School (formally Rockland District High School). She can be reached at 354-0652 or

Langdon’s work and that of jewelers, potters, photographers, fine woodworkers, painters and mixed media crafters may be enjoyed Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Rockland Art is held in Mildred Merrill Park, at the top of the hill overlooking Harbor Park. For more information, visit
