Machias, Maine – The Machias Bay Chamber’s Artist of the Month for January is a multi-artist showing by inmates of the Down East Correctional Facility at Machiasport. An artists’ reception was originally scheduled for Jan. 3 but has been rescheduled to 5-8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 10 based on weather conditions.

It will be held at the Chamber’s gallery, 11 Main Street, Machias.

Everything from pencil to oil pastel to watercolors, the artwork is inspiring and most of it is for sale. The artists’ reception is a fundraiser for the facility’s art program. Donations of funds or art supplies for the inmate art program will be gratefully accepted. The show will be up throughout January in the Chamber’s gallery and can be seen during regular business hours.
