It's almost summer in Maine and the Saltwater Artists Gallery, located on Pemaquid Point, has opened for the season. This is a new gallery for me, and I've spent the last couple of weeks helping to get the space ready, setting up my work, and getting to know some of the other artists. The gallery is maintained and operated by the membership, and tomorrow I have my first day training session. The intricacies of the operation of the new credit card reader loom large! (Talk about teaching an old dog new tricks - fingers crossed!)
The gallery has a long history in the area. It started out as the Waldoboro Gallery Association in 1967, was renamed the Medomak River Gallery in 1996, and finally became Saltwater Artists Gallery after it moved into its current location on Pemaquid Point in 1998. The membership is made up of 25 jury selected artists presenting artwork in a wide variety of media - watercolors, pastels, sculpture, oils, acrylics, photography, graphite, ink, pottery, wood turning, glass and jewelry. The gallery opened for weekends on Memorial Day, and will be open 7 days a week from 10-5 starting June 16th until Columbus Day. If you are in the area, stop by and see us!
