Schooner Gallery features contemporary fine art in Downeast Maine.

Schooner Gallery opened in May 2011 and features contemporary fine art. The gallery is located at 59 Main Street in the town of Milbridge in what was known in the mid-1800s as the “Captain Brown home.” The building was renovated inside and out to create bright and open space for exhibiting works of art.

Visitors from both far and locally have given generous compliments for the art shows that have been offered since opening. Schooner Gallery has been described as one of the best small art galleries in the Downeast region of Maine.

In addition to art shows exhibiting works by talented Maine artists, Schooner Gallery has a gift shop with select Maine-made products as well as visitor information about local businesses and attractions.
