Waldoboro — Waldoboro Public Library’s January Artist-of-the-Month is Christa Larsen-Sorterup. Since her years in high school, the Waldoboro native has traveled the globe with camera in tow, spending time in the Dominican Republic, England and Ecuador.

From the shores of Kauai to the slopes of Switzerland, Larsen-Sorterup has captured scenes of beauty from around the world. Through multiple college study abroad programs, she was given the opportunity to visit the European countries of Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Hungary, Austria, Slovakia, Croatia and the Czech Republic.

Many of Larsen-Sorterup’s favorite photos come from her time spent teaching on the Hawaiian island of Kauai during 2016. For now, she has returned to her home state and is enjoying photographing familiar Maine settings while teaching in a first grade classroom.

Waldoboro Public Library, 958 Main St./Route 220, is open Mondays and Thursdays from noon to 7 p.m.; Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information, call 832-4484.
