This year’s show schedule is set, and we couldn’t wait to share the excitement with all of you. We know how quickly summer calendars fill up, so be sure to pencil us in.
In 2019, we are thrilled to start the season with our 4th Annual Spring Show featuring artist Jill Matthews. Matthews can be found on the redesigned first floor of The Gallery on Maine Art Hill from May 25 through June 25. Jill lives and paints right here in Kennebunkport surrounded by views that inspire the fabulous beach scenes and classic Maine ocean. Her soft palette is perfect to kick off a lovely summer of art in the Kennebunks.
On June 8, Shows on Maine Art Hill opens for the summer with the 8th Annual Choice Art Show, the only show curated by you. This is our eighth year combining this show with the Kennebunkport Festival. Twelve Artists. Thirty-six works. We always love seeing your choices. Click here for information on which artists are participating. Remember voting begins in May!
Beginning June 29, Margaret Gerding, Ingunn Milla Joergensen, and Jule Houck form a fabulous all-female trio at Shows on Maine Art Hill. Their show will run for three weeks, closing on July 18. All three of these talented women live and paint locally. We truly enjoy filling Shows on Maine Art Hill with this work and are anxiously awaiting the arrival of this show.
On July 20, our show gallery at 10 Chase Hill will again host the much loved and respected work of artist Craig Mooney. This solo show will feature all new work from Craig and many beautiful surprises that only Mooney can provide. This show will run until August 8.
The second of our trio shows features Claire Bigbee, Bethany Harper Williams, and Kathy Ostrander Roberts. Another all female, all local show. Wow! We have so much talent in this little part of the world. This show begins on August 10 and runs through Labor Day, September 2.
Last, but certainly not least, our season wraps up back at The Gallery with an incredible finale of four artists, two painters, a sculptor, and a glass artist. Richard Remson is a Maine artist who works with primarily glass, highlighting some pieces with copper and brass. Ellen Welsh Granter and David Witbeck, both longtime favorites at Maine Art Hill will be joining Remson. David Riley Peterson, a Maine sculptor who brings clay sculpture to a whole new maritime level will round out this quartet of talent and fill the first floor at 14 Western Ave for Labor Day Weekend starting Saturday, August 31.
So with all of that said, please keep us in mind while deciding on which weeks to visit us here in Kennebunk. Of course, we would love to have you with us all summer, but we know for some of you that’s not possible. We do our best to keep you up to date on all the goings-on, but there are a few things you can do to make sure you stay connected. Please add your name to our email list for reminders if you don’t get them already. We keep your information private and will not inundate your inbox. Also, follow us on social media Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest and of course keep an eye on our Calendar on our website.
The Gallery at 14 Western Ave and Studios at 5 Chase Hill Road are both open all year round.
