Maine Exhibit Examines Art of Home-Built Boats

The Leonard Craig Memorial Gallery at Unity College in Unity, Maine, will host a new exhibit called the Art of the Homemade Boat, to run November 9 to December 8.

The exhibit showcases the art and craft of building boats that has been handed down through the generations, and continues in the present with traditional and modern materials. The show assembles boats loaned to Unity College from their builders, as well as vessels from the WoodenBoat School in Brooklin and the Penobscot Marine Museum in Searsport, Maine.

An opening reception is scheduled for November 9 from 4:30-6:30 p.m.

The reception is free and open to the public.
