The Maine Prison Outreach Program

The Gallery at Somes Sound is a proud sponsor and supporter of the Maine Prison Outreach Program organized by The New Hampshire Institute of Furniture Making (NHIFM).

For 12+ years, the New Hampshire Prisons system has included a fine woodworking program. Recently, through the efforts of Brian Reid and other Maine members of NHFMA, they have been given the opportunity to create a fine woodworking program in the Maine State Prison. The primary goal of this program is education; to teach students the skills necessary to design and make fine furniture to the highest standards of craftsmanship.

This cooperative venture between PRITAM & EAMES and The Gallery at Somes Sound reinforces and strengthens their long-term commitment to 21st-century fine art making Mount Desert Island a destination for anyone who loves paintings, sculpture and beautifully made furniture.

~~Being an Acadia Centennial Partner, The Gallery at Somes Sound continues the long standing tradition of educating, stimulating and encouraging the American people, through fine art and visual culture...
