2019 Late Summer Art Show

Join us for an Artists' Reception from 4 to 6 PM on Saturday, August 17th

Fred Hartman's colorful drawings of birds and other Maine creatures, as well as scenes of the Downeast coast, have brought enjoyment to many people. His artworks are done in pen & ink and watercolor, or in pencil and watercolor, and are very detailed in their depiction of wildlife. Fred is a retired Professional Wildlife Biologist (BS-Penn State University, MS-University of Maine at Orono) and has been associated with Maine for over 45 years. His years of work as a Wildlife Biologist has enabled him to put the right detail in his wildlife art.

Mid-Summer Art Show 2019

Our Mid-Summer Art Show featured works by Neal Small, Zeraph Dylan Moore, Caryl Lynn Dufour and Paul T. Shepherd. The show opened on Saturday, July 13th, 2019, with an Artists' Reception from 4 to 6 pm, and ran until August 13th.

Neal Small, the “Prince of Plastics”, is a self-taught designer and early plastics pioneer. In New York City in the 1960s, Small created a number of innovative and iconic designs, including the “Origami” magazine holder and the Model 5031 acrylic coffee table. His works have appeared in Vogue, Life Magazine, The New York Times, New York Post, Time Magazine, Esquire, and many others, and have been shown at or are part of the permanent collections of MoMA, Guggenheim Museum (NY), and The Smithsonian Institution.

Zeraph Dylan Moore is a Maine-based mixed-media abstract artist obsessed with texture, subtle tonal shifts and brilliant color. His “Post-Industrial” artwork incorporates acrylics, paper, inks, gold and silver leaf, enameled copper, and embroidery.

The other two artists in this show, Caryl Lynn Dufour and Paul T. Shepherd, added additional variety to the artworks that were exhibited in this show.

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.
