The University of Maine at Machias Art Gallery will present “Hiraeth: Recovery Through the Arts,” a series of cyanotype prints and sculptural objects by Michel Droge, March 1–26. An opening reception 4–7 p.m. March 1 is free and open to the public. The Art Gallery in Powers Hall is open 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Monday–Friday. For more information or to request a reasonable accommodation, call 255.1342 or visit machias.edu/art-gallery. Drawing from the symbolism of the family pattern woven into fisherman’s sweaters, Droge’s artwork opens the door for conversation and community engagement around the opioid epidemic. A handmade book of writings on the subject by event organizer Holly Gartmayer-DeYoung, CEO of Eastport Health Care, Inc., will be included in the exhibit. A free collaborative papermaking workshop will also be led by Droge and professor Bernie Vinzani, 9:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m. March 2 in Torrey Hall on campus.
