Boothbay Harbor — Boothbay Region Art Foundation’s statewide “ARTinME” exhibit will be juried by Chris Crosman, former director of the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, where he served for 18 years.

Crosman also is the founding chief curator of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Ark. He has written extensively about American art and artists including serving as editor and principal essayist for Celebrating the American Spirit, the inaugural publication of the collection of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art; and author of “Islands for Andrew Wyeth: In Retrospect,” an exhibition opening at the Brandywine Museum in Chadds Ford, Pa., and traveling to the Seattle Art Museum this fall. He currently lives in Thomaston, where he is an independent curator, consultant, and writer.
