Join us for Trekkers’ Online Art Auction - now through August 8th at 7pm!
Over 20 of midcoast Maine’s most renowned artists have created a Sailor’s Valentine, an art form dating back to the 19th century. These modern takes on a heritage form represent a journey each artist has taken and shared to give back to the community. This auction benefits Trekkers and 100% of the proceeds go Trekkers youth mentoring programs.
