    For its fourth exhibition of the season, the Maine Art Gallery seeks entries on the theme of “Working Maine.” This show, which runs from July 13 to Aug. 13 will feature artists who have depicted the diverse world of work in our state — from the working waterfront, construction, agriculture, and manufacturing to everyday people going about their daily work. The artwork can be both literal and metaphorical, including drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, printmaking, collage and assemblage.

    The juror for this exhibition is Andre Benoit, the Boothbay artist known for his multidimensional mixed media creations. More information can be found at and on Facebook at Maine Art Gallery Wiscasset. 

    Deadline for submissions is Wednesday June 28, 2023. Submission guidelines are available at

    In celebration of the gallery’s 65th anniversary, the current show, Generations includes art from the founding years, plus an invitational and juried art. Generations runs through June 10.
