In celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Maine artist Robert Shetterly will join us to present a series of portraits from his project Americans Who Tell the Truth.

A combination of art and history, Shetterly’s paintings feature citizens who bravely engage issues of social, environmental, and economic fairness with the goal of inspiring action for the common good.

An exhibit of twenty portraits from Shetterly’s collection is on display through February 14 in Gould’s Owen Art Gallery, which is open to the public from 4:00 – 6:00 PM Monday through Friday.  

There will be a public reception with the artist on January 20 from 4:00- 6:00 PM. We hope to see you there!
