When heading into Kennebunkport from Rt. 9 it is impossible to miss Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture. Known for the large display of Lyman Whitaker Wind Sculptures in the front yard, Maine Art has greeted visitors and locals alike for over fifteen years now. We have always thought it was a great place to visit, but when Jeff Peterson from WGME’s Road Trippin’ called to set up a time to film and interview, we were happy to oblige and help him spread the word.
Owner John Spain met with Jeff and his cameraman, Matt, down on 14 Western Ave outside of Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture. The gallery wasn’t open yet and fewer people were wandering around Kennebunkport at that time. John filled him in on some of the history, what the difference is between Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture and the gallery on 10 Chase Hill Road, Maine Art Shows, what’s up and coming for art openings, and of course a little bit about those famous Wind Sculptures.
Road Trippin is a segment on WGME that focuses on northern New England tourism. Where to eat, where to play, and of course where to shop. They air on Thursday mornings on Channel 13, WGME, but their webpage keeps video of past visits in case you miss one. Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture will be featured on the July 2nd show that is coming to Kennebunkport.
