Kerry Hadley

The board of trustees of the Maine Art Gallery in Wiscasset is pleased to announce that Kerry Hadley has stepped into the position of gallery manager.

Hadley brings to the gallery a depth of strategic and organizational management experience that is well suited to a nonprofit gallery. As manager of the Camden Opera House for 16 years and, prior to that, executive director of the Greater Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce, her goal has always been to enrich and cultivate community while helping to grow the nonprofits with which she has been involved.

“The Maine Art Gallery is a gem of a place. It’s so close to downtown yet located in a beautiful, historic neighborhood,” she says. “I look forward to helping the deeply dedicated and accomplished board bring more awareness of the gallery and its diverse offerings.”

Hadley began her career in New York City and made her way north over the years with her husband, finally making their home in Owls Head. Kerry’s loves include art gallery hopping, reading, gardening, travel, and time spent at her wilderness camp in Moosehead Lake.

Hadley comes to the Maine Art Gallery in time to help launch an exciting new season of exhibits, beginning with the Members Show, which runs from May 15 to June 5. Five more shows fill out a season, which runs through Oct. 17. The gallery is also holding an online auction from May 1 to June 15.

The Maine Art Gallery is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement and preservation of painting, sculpture and graphic arts through exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations, and educational programs for children and adults. The gallery is located at 15 Warren St., Wiscasset. Visit www.maineartgallerywiscasset.org for details.
