Paint It! Wiscasset
Drawn to Maine: Contemporary Drawing and Printmaking

June 13 – July 21

This special dual exhibition will feature two separate shows running concurrently. Our annual Plein Air event will feature artists who have one week to complete new, wet works throughout Lincoln County, which will be displayed on the first floor. One day will be devoted to having all artists painting in Wiscasset.

At the same time, works on paper will occupy the second floor of the gallery. This juried show will feature contemporary drawing and printmaking from Maine artists in a variety of drawing media and printmaking processes.

September 12 – October 20

Autumn, with its waning light, is a perfect time to display fine art that portrays evening or night.  American artists began exploring this theme influenced by James McNeil Whistler’s nocturne series in the late 1800’s. This juried show will feature work that explores the theme in all mediums and styles.

A variety of mediums will be explored by Wiscasset students in this year's student show. Over 100 works were exhibited in 2023 by young, talented artists. The student's work will be accompanied by select artwork of their teachers that will echo the mentorship theme being previewed on the gallery's second floor where "Generations: The Legacy of Mentors" will be mounted.

Generations: The Legacy of Mentors

May 2 – June 9

The Maine Art Gallery is conducting an encore to last year’s Generations show and expanding to include an exploration of the theme of mentorship. Last year’s Generations show, termed "a landmark for the state of Maine," generated enormous appeal and attracted a substantial increase in art sales, state-wide press on TV, radio, and in magazines, as well as a record number of patrons. This year's exhibit will explore mentorship in significant ways.

This exhibition contains two components; the first features Maine Art Gallery "generations" artists from the 1950’s and 60’s, and the influence those artists had on a younger group of artists. The second component consists of a juried exhibit of member artists along with statements that describe their mentors and the influences on their current work.
