WAYNE BARTLETT, left, and Anne Magalis hang the final piece of a mural that Magalis spent several weeks creating for the Lighthouse Variety and Deli on Harpswell Road in Brunswick. The artwork went up Monday, and Bartlett and his business partner, Becky Marcos, plan to reopen the storefront on Thursday. Five panels of acrylic on pressboard, the mural is an evolutionary depiction of Maine’s labor industry from farming and logging, to building and fisheries, and finally to tourism and retail. It’s a home-grown version of the mural that Gov. Paul LePage had removed from the Department of Labor in 2011, Marcos said.
