ALLAGASH The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry's Bureau of Parks and Lands is now offering 500 signed, numbered, limited-edition art prints of a painting by noted wildlife artist Mark McCollough.

McCollough's painting depicts a family poling and paddling canoes below Allagash Falls in the Allagash Wilderness Waterway (AWW). The prints are being sold to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the AWW and to support the AWW Permanent Endowment Fund.

'The Allagash Wilderness Waterway's unique, north flowing series of dams, lakes and rivers has contributed to the Maine economy for three centuries,' said Commissioner Walt Whitcomb. 'The Waterway is still going strong on the occasion of its 50th anniversary as a significant recreational designation.'

'The painting by Mark McCollough captures both the traditional and modern use of the waterway with the iconic image of the Allagash Falls in the background, it truly is an outstanding work of art,' said AWW Superintendent Matthew LaRoche.

Only 500 of the prints will be made available, each signed and numbered by the artist. They are 24' X 20' in size, including a surrounding two inch border. The prints cost $50.00 each, plus tax, shipping and handling.

Prints can be ordered through the State Park Reservations Office at1-800-332-1501(within Maine), or207-624-9950. Prints can also be purchased at most Allagash Ranger Stations and at the Bureau of Parks and Lands office in Augusta.
