Great Harbor Boatworks' president and master boatbuilder Richard Stanley received a traditional arts fellowship award from the Maine Arts Commission.

The Traditional Arts Fellowship Program honors Maine artists who have devoted their lives to keeping traditional art alive.

“Mastering a traditional art calls for an understanding of a particular style or choice of materials, as well as a deep connection to place and local practices,” the commission said in a statement.

“Traditional arts are passed down through the generations, reflecting the values and practices of a shared culture based on geography, language, religion, occupation, ethnic heritage, tribal affiliation or family background,” the commission said.
