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 over forty artists during its year.
