Logging in the Maine Woods, 1915-1928
The Paintings of Alden Grant
February 1- March 25, 2016
This special exhibit of 19 paintings by Alden Grant, Sr. is on loan from the Rangeley Lakes Region Logging Museum for 8 weeks only. The subject is logging in the Maine woods from 1915-1928, when axes, handsaws, and horses were used to cut and haul trees. Alden Grant, who lived some years in Freeport, spent many hours of his youth observing loggers working near his childhood home in the area of Rangeley, Maine. He created these folk art paintings from 1986-1990, when he was in his late seventies, from his memories of the logging camps in the early decades of the 20th century.
