WELCOME TO NORTH LIGHT GALLERY!
We will be open Friday, November 25th-27th, following Thanksgiving dinner, of course, and welcome your visit to kick off the Holidays.
On December 9th-11th, the Millinocket Marathon and Half will liven up our town with the presence of 1,000 marathon runners, their families and spectators as this Boston Marathon qualifying race gets underway at 9:30 Saturday morning. North Light Gallery will have a "Live Painters" event on Saturday, the 10th, with 9 of our painters set up and painting in the gallery from 10-8, with refreshments. Don't miss this fun event and all the other events scheduled for the marathon weekend!
If this is your first visit to our site, here's a little history:
In 2004, artist Marsha Donahue opened North Light Gallery in downtown Millinocket on the route to Katahdin and Baxter State Park, showcasing the works of a couple dozen artists who painted Katahdin and its surrounding landscape. Inspired by artists such as Frederic Edwin Church, Marsden Hartley and James Fitzgerald, many more artists have made the pilgrimage to this exquisite landscape and discovered its wealth of art history, also including Carl Sprinchorn and many more contemporary artists, a history eloquently told by David Little in his book published in 2011 by DownEast Books titled "The Art of Katahdin". Many North Light Gallery artists are featured in this compendium of beautiful images but the gallery now exhibits a selection of one dozen artists dedicated to this landscape during each year in a rotating exhibit.
