The 2022 show season has come to a close for Saltwater Artists Gallery. Our last day was Saturday, October 15th. It was a successful season with many returning customers, as well as many new ones. We were very proud to have been voted a finalist in DownEast magazine's Readers' Choice Best of Maine Art Gallery category.
Also of note during the 2022 season...new members Nicole Nappi (painter) and Beth Thompson (jeweler), proved to be a perfect fit to the gallery...in August four of our members, Mark Malinowski, Carol Ast, Scott White, and Bob Schilke held a successful 1st annual Plein Air Day, painting in the area around the gallery and Pemaquid Point... and stained glass artist Janet Lockhart organized a fundraiser at the gallery in support of Ukraine, raising over $3,000 to be donated to the World Central Kitchen and Save the Children.
We will be keeping our customers up to date on member activities during the off-season via our Gallery newsletter and we look forward to opening day on Memorial weekend of 2023.
