We look forward to hosting you in our gallery, and we have handled thousands of transactions successfully online for clients outside of Maine. Our gallery is open daily from 10 am - 5:30 pm, and our staff will assist you online 24/7. Thank you for visiting.


NEW EXHIBITIONS OPEN ON THE FIRST THURSDAY OF EVERY MONTH


"My creative process is an involved and organic one. I paint on large wooden panels that lie flat and require me to continually move around them. As my body travels around the painting—dripping, ironing, and fusing the pigmented wax into place—I am constantly assessing the state of the composition: the relationship of each element to one another, the saturation of color, the detail and depth of each layer, the viscosity of the wax and the changes occurring before me." - Annie Darling

"Born into a family of artists, designers, and architects, my paintings fuse the structural sensibilities of my architect father and the often riotous color sense of my interior designer mother. I studied painting at Trinity College with colorist George Chapman who was a student of Joseph Albers and learned the art of defining space with color and value. After 30 years of success in the graphic design field, I decided to become a full-time painter." - Andrew Faulkner

"For me painting is unpredictable. It unfolds slowly, mysteriously leading to resolution. When I paint, I start instinctively.  My arm moves, leading me to think about the energy I want to offer through the piece.  Surprises emerge; there is really nothing planned in my  painting. When I work, I am reaching into the unknown, striving for the best painting I can create. I know that good art brings Joy. And that happiness is what I want to offer the viewer." - Brenda Cirioni

Emily Blaschke is an artist passionate about sustainability and is dedicated to breathing new life into discarded materials. Blaschke sources her materials from local swap shops, dumps, and thrift stores, and repurposes them into innovative, layered, and colorful mixed-media art objects. Even representational paintings that lack her usual mixed media elements are created with expired nail polish and leftover house paint.
