Many of you have asked if/when the gallery will open for the season. According to Governor Mills’ New Mandate and 4 Stage Plan to Re-Open Maine for business, beginning in June, gathering spaces for fewer than 50 people may open, provided that visitors wear protective face coverings and maintain a distance of 6 feet from one another.
For this reason, I have decided to open June 11 for visitors. Though I will not host openings as they present too many food service and social distancing challenges, I hope that you will enjoy the work you see both online and in the gallery.
As in years past, I have worked to curate the most compelling new work from artists from Maine and beyond. I am sure, whether viewing work online or coming to the gallery to see it in person, that you will be moved and uplifted by what you see, much of which has been completed during and often defined by this challenging, uncertain time in history.
I hope you are as inspired by this work as I am, and if you are unable to come see us in Blue Hill, that you are nourished by the images you find on the website, Instagram posts – and in this newsletter!
Thank you for your support,
Please be well, stay safe, and
Have a great summer!
All my best,
