Maine Art Hill is happy to introduce our newest gallery space in the Maine Art family, Studios on Maine Art Hill. This collection of seven micro-galleries will be home to high-quality artists and artisans and add to our lovely coastal community which is quickly becoming known as Maine’s premier art destination.
Most of the seven spaces have already spoken for and under contract. The amount of interest in the remaining is overwhelming, and we expect to have them filled soon. The enthusiasm is a wonderful surprise, and we are looking forward to announcing the occupants soon. Please contact us if you have an interest in becoming a permanent part of Maine Art Hill.
With all that said, we want to talk a bit about Pop-Up on Maine Art Hill.
For collectors and visitors in the area, this is a wonderful place to find new and interesting artists and artisans. Each week, a different pop-up artist is taking over and sharing their work. It is an opportunity to see some of the finest art from throughout New England and beyond. However, for the artists and artisans, it will be a very different opportunity.
We have many artist and artisans already booked for the season, but we wanted to get the word out about how quickly these weeks are filling up. Presently, we have only FOUR summer slots still available. We would love to see a few more artisans in this space. Know that it is possible to share the space with a fellow craftsman. Please contact Trisha at [email protected] if you want more information or to book your week.
This gallery/retail space is available for weekly rentals by guest artists and artisans. The high vaulted ceiling and beautiful north facing windows fill the space with that magical light all artists love. We have equipped the 14 x 20 ft. space with hanging systems and quality art lighting. This brand new build out also includes all utilities, Wi-Fi, water, and heat/air conditioning, and a parking spot! We all know how coveted those are in the Kennebunks.
Remember one of the other perks of Pop-Up on Maine Art Hill, or at least we think it is, is our marketing and social media presence. When booking a week with us, we will not only include business names, hashtags, and web links on our year-round calendar, but they will be on our social media and marketing blitzes for that week and blog posts that introduce each visiting artist. We have a fabulous new marketing director, and she is loving the idea of partnering with the pop-ups to curate interesting and fun content.
Last but not least, location, location, location. An entire week right in the heart of the Kennebunk and Kennebunkport shopping area. Our walking traffic is crazy as soon as spring hits and doesn’t slow down until the famous Kennebunkport Christmas Prelude festivities come to a close. There is actually quite a bit of progress already being made up at 5 Chase Hill Road in Kennebunk. Feel free to take a drive by and check it out.
Getting the walls up!
Adding some roof!!
Wow! Its a building!
It is our hope that by offering this space we can help create a vibrant, ever-changing atmosphere and encourage long-lasting connections between artists, artisans, and clients.
Weekly rates range from $700-$1150 depending on the time of year. Again, FMI contact Trisha Winslow at 207-951-0984 or [email protected]
