Working The Woods
In sections arranged by birch, oak, spruce, and more, “Working the Woods” tells the story of the Northern Forest in Maine through the lives of 21 workers in the woods: basket makers, canoe builders, guides, hunters, loggers, poets, tinkerers, wood carvers, and more. The artists range throughout the state of Maine, from Ashland and Presque Isle in the north to Rangeley and Paris in the west and east to Montville and Old Town, and beyond.
