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, The Gallery at 14 Western Avenue has been rearranged to help you find just what you need. Much of the first floor is dedicated to “Small Works.” Most 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 tastes. Prices start at $100.
If all else fails, give us a call. We are happy to work with you. Send us an image of your room and we have the technology to help you find that perfect spot and show you what it will look like. If you are local, we are happy to make a home visit to help. We want you to love your new artwork and deciding where you will hang it is a big part of that.
We are celebrating the fall colors, the cool air and the addition of two new artists to the gallery. Both are excited to join our family, and we want to give them a proper Kennebunk Welcome. There is nothing like hot apple cider and fall bites to make a Maine gathering complete. We are also thrilled to have live music from local guitarist Beau Dalleo. So, as you are out wandering and enjoying the sunshine this weekend, we hope you take some time to come say hello and visit.
Over the course of the summer, we celebrated with four shows: The 6th Annual Choice Show, Craig Mooney’s One Man Show, our 20th Anniversary Show, and presently, Three Artists, Three Rooms, One Show – Frey, Gerding, and Granter. Click each to view, if you didn’t have a chance to see them. A few pieces from each show are still available on the Artist Pages. Each show featured some of the best art work from around the state and New England. We were incredibly fortunate to house such beauty.
All told, we have over thirty artists at Maine Art Gallery and many have new pieces that have been or will be featured in shows this summer. New works arrive every week. Our website is real time and is always up to date. Be sure to watch our Facebook page, as well, for new additions to our inventory. If you want to be contacted when new work comes in from any specific artist, please add your name to our email list, indicate which one, and we will be sure to contact you.
The custom framing aspect of the gallery works to support our artists and our customers. Only a few of our artists frame their own work. By having the frame shop at hand, we are able to assist them and our clients by find framing that enhances each piece, as well as the room it will soon call home.
Congratulations to Gail Sanders our 2016 Wind Sculpture Photo Contest Winner!
“We cross paths with people throughout our lives sometimes never knowing the full impact a person has on you until you no longer travel on the same path,” says Natalie Lane, Gallery Manager at Maine Art. “I am blessed to have been able to call Francesca a good friend and will miss her dearly.”
Between spring and St. Patty’s we love this time of year at Maine Art. The streets outside our windows have just a few more people wandering, shops that have been closed and dark since January are beginning to open their windows and air out the winter dust, and on those lovely days when the thermometer rises above 60 degrees, we begin to smell the beginning of the season. Of course our pot of gold looks more like Daniel Corey’s sunflowers in Of the Sun and our Shamrocks are made of copper by Lyman Witaker and spin all year long, but still we celebrate right along with the rest of you.
Our hope is not to jinx, but just to remind of the wonderland we call home. Mother Nature surely kept us waiting this year, but has now decided to decorate Maine in a way we are much more accustom to this time of year. There is no way to know how much snow will come between now and spring. It will be welcome. Maybe not when we are shoveling it, but at least when we are sledding, skiing, and walking through what we love about winter in Maine.
