Exhibition: In the Round: Ancient Art from All Sides

This exhibition examines the geometry and design of ancient art and the efforts by artists to represent depth and movement by influencing the vantage point of the viewer. By simply flipping a coin, rotating a vase, or walking around a sculpture, the composition changes and new perspectives emerge. Using artifacts from the ancient Mediterranean, In the Round explores early innovations in representational art.

Red Friday at Hammond Lumber

Hammond Lumber Company will be initiating a company wide effort to support Wreaths Across America in their mission to Remember the Fallen, Honor Those Who Serve, and Teach Our Children the Value of Freedom. Wreaths Across America, based in Columbia Falls, Maine, is a national nonprofit organization founded in 2007 by Maine businessman, Morrill Worcester. Each December, on National Wreaths Across America Day, this three-prong mission is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 1,400 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad. In 2017, 1,560,000 wreaths were laid at 1,433 participating cemeteries.

Our employees will be proudly wearing co-branded RED t-shirts or sweatshirts each Friday from November 9th to December 14th. Family members, friends, and customers can also join us and receive one RED t-shirt apparel item by making a $25 donation. All funds will be used to purchase wreaths for distribution at the Veterans’ Cemeteries in Augusta on National Wreaths Across America Day, scheduled for Saturday, December 15th, 2018. Wreaths can be sponsored “in honor of” a living veteran, or “in memory of” a fallen hero.

On Saturday, December 8th, the Hammond Lumber Company chip trailer will travel to Wreaths Across America’s home office in Columbia Falls to collect the wreaths and participate in the first leg of the Wreaths Across America convoy to Arlington. After making stops along the route, the day will end with a rally at the Augusta Civic Center. The Hammond chip trailer will then return to Belgrade where the wreaths will be stored until they are distributed on National Wreaths Across America day, December 15th.

On Saturday, December 15th, anyone wishing to participate in the convoy and/or laying of the wreaths can gather at Hammond Lumber Company in Belgrade. We hope to visit the Togus National Cemetery in Togus (5,373 headstones), the Central Maine Veterans Cemetery on Civic Center Drive (543 headstones), and the Central Maine Veterans Cemetery on Mount Vernon Road (150 headstones). We are waiting for more information from the Augusta Area Coordinator as to which sections of the cemetery we will cover. However, if you have sponsored a wreath and have a loved one in any of these cemeteries you may opt to personally place a wreath at their gravesite.

Hammond Lumber Company is also making a donation of in-kind of materials needed to renovate what will be the WAA hospitality house for Gold Star families, veterans and volunteers who wish to visit the WAA headquarters. We will provide you with more details as the events draw nearer. This is our opportunity to show our veterans and their families, by our actions and support, that we will not forget their sacrifice. This year’s Wreaths Across America efforts will represent the 2018 theme: BE THEIR WITNESS.

From all of us at Hammond Lumber Company, we thank you for your support and participation. Visit any of Hammond Lumber Company’s 21 store locations for more details and to make a donation. For more information on Wreaths Across America, visit their official website at

Autograph signing by Nan Hauser

The Center for Cetacean Research and Conservation was founded nearly three decades ago by President and Director Nan Hauser in Brunswick and for the past 21 years her research has been focused on South Pacific whales off the island Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. Hauser has a home there and also in Brunswick.

In a rare public autograph signing Hauser will be available at the Maine Made Photos booth at the Cooks Corner Craft Show on Sunday, December 9 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. and Saturday, December 15 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.  Hauser has been busy working on a new one hour film which she has co-produced. She is also planning on returning to her research center soon to continue her life’s work.

The Cook Islands Whale Research Project investigates the humpback whale population that travels through the equatorial South Pacific. Research topics within the project are diverse, ranging from satellite tagging and migration to acoustics and climate change.

Hauser is world renowned in her scientific research and in September 2017 was saved from a Tiger Shark attack by a 50,000 pound humpback whale off the island of Rarotonga.      There will also be a raffle to support Hauser’s whale research during the Craft Show sponsored by Maine Made Photos, Hauser and The Cryer.
