HALLOWELL - Calling all artists and animal lovers! Artist Cheryl Miller needs your help filling the Harlow Gallery in Hallowell with 46 million turkeys this Thanksgiving season. (Seriously.)

Mail your turkey drawings, doodles, fiberart, prints, paintings, caricatures, cut-outs, sketches or sculptures, plus the official entry form and an optional donation of $1 (50 cents will support this project at the nonprofit Harlow Gallery and 50 cents will be donated to Peace Ridge Sanctuary in Penobscot at the end of the project) to the following address:

46 Million Turkeys

Harlow Gallery

160 Water Street

Hallowell ME 04347

Please visit for complete guidelines and information about the project overall.

This year during Thanksgiving week the Harlow Gallery is hosting Cheryl Miller's 46 Million Turkeys project. Cheryl Miller, an artist based in Augusta, is exhibiting 15 years of turkey portraits and inviting the public to help her artistically create 46 million turkeys representing the number of birds that will be consumed in the United States over the Thanksgiving holiday. You do not have to be an artist to participate - visit Miller's website to find out more!

All of the turkeys submitted will be included in the week-long exhibition at the Harlow Gallery at 160 Water Street in Hallowell, Nov. 25-30, 2013. Gallery visitors will have the opportunity to create their own turkeys during the exhibition. The public is invited to meet the artist and witness the final turkey count at a closing reception on Saturday, Nov. 30 from 5 to 8 p.m. The Harlow Gallery will be open special hours for this event: Monday through Thursday, noon to 6 p.m. (yes, the gallery will be open on Thanksgiving!) and Friday and Saturday, noon to 8 p.m. 

The Harlow Gallery is a 501(c)3 non-profit membership based art gallery founded in 1963. The gallery has been connecting art, artists and community in downtown historic Hallowell for half a century.
