Ralph Stanley: An Eye for Wood
June 4, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5
Thursday, June 4, 7:00 pm in PMM’s Douglas and Margaret Carver Memorial Art Gallery, 11 Church Street
This moving documentary on the extraordinary life of world-renowned Maine Master Boatbuilder Ralph Stanley is “more than a life story,” says the Bangor Daily News, “it’s also a documentary about life on Mount Desert Island and the Cranberry Isles, the Stanley family and how they shaped craft in Maine at the end of the twentieth century.” Ralph Stanley received a National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellowship and has built more than 70 fine wooden boats including working lobster boats, Friendship sloops, lobster boats, yachts, dories, and rowboats. Ralph has also restored a large number of wooden boats throughout his long storied career.
Filmmaker Jeff Dobbs is based in Bar Harbor.
Cost: $8; $5 Members
