Thirty Years in the Making – Summer Show Opener 2022

30th Anniversary

3 Views of ME

June 4 – June 30

The Show Gallery

Ten Artists. Three Pieces Each. Thirty Reasons to Celebrate.

Maine Art Hill is a collection of galleries draped over Chase Hill in Lower Village Kennebunk. It is a one-of-a-kind art-centric destination just steps from the bustling harbor of Kennebunkport. However, like many small successful businesses in Maine, it started small and long ago.

Owner John Spain first arrived in Kennebunk to open a small print and frame shop. After thirty years, countless hours, and an abundance of good fortune and good people beside him, Maine Art Hill became what it is today,

“We knew we had to do something big to celebrate thirty incredible years of growth and success,” shares Spain. “How about bringing ten of Maine Art Hill’s well-loved artists together for one show that is sure to be fabulous? Yes, let’s do that.”

With that, the thirtieth-anniversary show was born. Three Views of Maine is a culmination of ten artists submitting three pieces each and giving us thirty reasons to celebrate.


“Each artist has delivered three pieces of never before shown work,” explains Natalie Lane, Gallery Director at Maine Art Hill. “We received a 36 x 48 vertical or horizontal, a 30 x 30 square, and a 24 x 24 square from each artist. With these guidelines in place, there is something for everyone.”

To add another twist and honor the spirit of our traditional Choice Show, usually held at this time of year, we decided to keep the “voting” aspect of this opening event. 

“We asked each artist to select a Maine charity to support during this show,” says Abby Daggett, Marketing Director. “By following us on Facebook, clients, friends, and artists were able to vote for their favorite works. The painting with the most organic votes earns $1000 for that artist’s favorite local charity.”

Beginning June 4 at 10 am, Three Views of Maine opens at  Shows at 10 Chase Hill Road in Kennebunk, Maine. This show will run for four weeks, ending on Thursday, June 30. The gallery is open every day from 10-5. FMI call 207-967-0049 or visit Artist reception Saturday, June 4, 5 PM -7 PM.
