Camden — A painting by artist JR Braugh has been donated to the Satellite Club of West Bay Rotary to be raffled on Oct. 24, 2020. The donor is Camden resident Joshua Grodzins and the funds raised will be used to support charitable causes.

The artwork, on display at Christine’s Gallery at the Reny’s Plaza in Camden, is a painting of a streetscape familiar to Midcoast residents. Braugh’s statement describes the morning walk he would make, up from the windjammer he was working on to get coffee at French and Brawn in the winter while studying for his merchant marine license almost 20 years ago.

Tickets may be purchased and the painting viewed at Christine’s Gallery, who donated the mat and framing of the piece. Tickets are $20 each, 6 for $100. A total of 150 tickets will be available for sale. For more information, contact Abe Dugal at 236-8376.

The Satellite of West Bay Rotary meets on the second and fourth Thursday of the month, from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m., currently outdoors at Flatbread in Rockport. For more information, visit
