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. 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. Participants are asked to bring a piece of natural clothing or other plant-based material that has significance to them in the realm of recovery or addresses their experience with the opioid epidemic. The items will be joined into sheets of handmade paper. The paper will then be embossed with meaningful words chosen by the participants.

Eastport Arts Center will offer a two-part workshop in Block Printing on Fabric on Saturday, March 2, and Saturday, March 9, from 12:30-4:30 pm. Instructors Susan Lehnen and Sasha Lehnen-Spencer will guide students in an exploration of printing on fabric using hand-cut stamps. Participants will create their own symbols to experiment with, and, in Lehnen’s words, will “play together with color and design to get a feel for these techniques and to create unique works of textile art.” The course will include discussion of textile stamping in a historical context as well as the development of symbolism within the cultures who cultivated these techniques.
