WELCOME TO NORTH LIGHT GALLERY!
The season is almost here and we're making plans. Even though the first open house and reception isn't until Saturday, June 3rd, we welcome your visit and have fresh work on the walls from now on. We will also hold another open house on Saturday, July 1st. Both of these exhibitions will be a selection of our outstanding North Light Gallery Artists. Gallery hours are still 10-5 through May, except for Sundays.
Two exciting shows will be up this summer:
"My Katahdin" is a show open to all artists. Artists are welcome to send one image of Katahdin to submit to be juried into the show by the 17th of July for a show that will open on July 22nd. The reception will happen on the 29th.
"Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument First Anniversary Show" will open on August 26th with a reception. Artists are also welcome to submit one work done either in or of the National Monument to be juried into the show by August 17th.
Please contact us through the email on this site or our phone (207)723-4414 if you need more information.
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.
