Last week for the 20th Century Fine Art of Historic Alna Show


Over 150 people attended the Art of Historic Alna show last weekend and there are still a few opportunities to see the show this coming weekend, Friday through Sunday, September 30 through October 30. 2. Exhibit hours will be Friday 1-6pm and Saturday and Sunday 10am-5pm. Puddledock School is located next to the Alna Post Office on Route 194 south of Head Tide Village at the Dock Road intersection.

A destination to visit in its own right, the historic Puddledock School was built in 1874 and was one of Alna’s one-room schools until 1964. The interior has been partially restored and contains woodwork, blackboards and other original school items.

Several notable painters and engravers worked in and around Alna during the first half of the 20th century, and local lenders generously made their works available for this rare public display. Artists represented include Carroll Thayer Berry, Allen Erskine Philbrick and Francis Wenderoth “Dick” Saunders.

Works on display include oil and watercolor paintings, woodcuts and engravings of local landscapes and landmarks, including houses, churches, mills and bridges that no longer exist. Some additional scenes from the village of Sheepscot, Newcastle and the nearby coast are also included.

For more information, please contact the Alna Municipal Office at 586-5313.
