Lyman Whitaker and Whitaker Studio – 10 Years with Maine Art

It’s been ten years since John Spain, owner of Maine Art, first saw Lyman Whitker’s copper Wind Sculptures. It’s been ten years since conversation began with Stacy Christiansen, Whitaker’s wife and business partner. It’s been ten years since the amazing kinetic sculpture garden began greeting all who visit the Kennebunks. Ten years— it is time to celebrate.

Blossoming at Maine Art

After last week’s winter storm, we have our fingers crossed that spring is truly on her way. Soon the grass will be green, and the branches on the trees will succumb to that lovely glow of new growth. Once spring has started, she usually rolls right along, which means the flowers are sure to follow. These are our favorite signs of the season here at Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture, and the favorite of many of our artists, as well.

Painting the Town Red

For the entire month of February visitors and locals alike will find special deals, interesting events, and wonderful surprises through out our two coastal villages. Both Kennebunk and Kennebunkport will host this annual event. Eat, stay and play specials will run from January 28 – February 28, 2017.

The Happiness of the Holidays

We, here are Maine Art, as so lucky to spend our days surround by beautiful works of art and a staff that truly enjoy coming to work everyday. It makes the gallery a wonderful place to be every day, but especially this time of year. So, as the last few days of “shopping season” wrap up, we invite you to stop in, even if its just to say Happy Holidays and share a smile.

Something Small for the Holidays

In the past there has been interest expressed in smaller works for the holidays, so that’s what we have done. Over the last few weeks, our gallery at 14 Western Avenue has been arranged to help you find just what you need. The entire first floor is dedicated to “Small Works”. All pieces are 20” x 20” or smaller and have been grouped by artist. They are easy to find and offer a variety of styles and mediums to meet your personal tastes.

Happy Holidays in the Kennebunks

It is that time of year again. Kennebunk and Kennebunkport are coming alive with holiday spirit. Over the course of the last few days, greens have been cut, bows tied and lights strung. The town looks fabulous and is more than ready to greet the influx of locals and tourist soon to arrive to kick off this holiday season with Christmas Prelude. Here at Maine Art, we are excited to be a part of it.
