Maine Art opens a third gallery and breathes new life into their established yet growing brand.
After 20 years in business in the Kennebunks, Maine Art Paintings & Sculpture is opening a collection of seven micro galleries on Chase Hill Road representing high-quality artists and artisans. Launching in May, the custom framing and print shop will occupy one of the studios, while five spaces are reserved for annual renters and one for rotating weekly pop-ups.
“We offer these rentals to create a vibrant, ever-changing atmosphere and make new connections between artists, artisans, and collectors,” says gallery owner John Spain.
In conjunction with this new venture, the company has undergone a brand refresh to mirror its growth as a gallery destination. The new name—Maine Art Hill—is the umbrella for the company’s two existing brands while also incorporating its newest family member—Studios on Maine Art Hill. Maine Art Shows, a seasonal gallery open May through September will now be known as Shows on Maine Art Hill. The main year-round gallery, Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture, is now The Gallery on Maine Art Hill.
Maine Art Hill represents 35 of New England’s most established fine artists such as William B. Hoyt, Craig Mooney, David Witbeck, Rebecca Kinkead, Margaret Gerding, and Ellen Welch Granter. Maine Art Hill is the Northeast representation of Lyman Whitaker’s Kinetic Wind Sculptures, known and sold worldwide. Holly Ready kicks off their seven-show season starting May 26, 2018.
