The Pemaquid Art Gallery located at Lighthouse Park will open its doors for a pre-season exhibit over Memorial Day Weekend. Visitors are invited to visit the gallery on Saturday, May 29 to Monday, May 31 during the hours of 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.

The gallery will fully re-open for the 2021 summer season on Friday, June 4 through Columbus Day with daily hours of 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Covid safety precautions will be in place and masks are required.

The Pemaquid Group of Artists is a nonprofit organization consisting of artist members juried into the group. The 32 artists exhibiting their artwork in 2021 are all from Lincoln County.

“This season the artists are pleased to welcome seven new member artists,” said the Gallery, in a news release.

John Butke, Gwendolyn Evans, Hannah Ineson, Alexandra Perry-Weiss, Kim Traina, Candace Vlcek, and Sherrie York have been juried into membership. Carol Wiley and Brooke Pacy will be exhibiting their work as 2021 Seasonal Guest Artists.

“Come and see the work of these new artist members and guests, as well as the returning 23 member artists,” said PAG.

Each year the cooperative gallery provides financial aid to one or more community art programs, as well as a Museum Pass for the Portland Museum of Art, available to anyone at Skidompha Library. Artist-donated paintings and Gallery Patrons all help to make these gifts possible.

The 2021 exhibiting artists who are returning include Barbara Applegate, Debra Arter, Bruce Babb, Julie Babb, Stephen Busch, Dianne Dolan, Peggy Farrell, Sarah Fisher, Claire Hancock, Kay Sawyer Hannah, Kathleen Horst, Will Kefauver, Jan Kilburn, Barbara Klein, Patti Leavitt, Sally Loughridge, Judy Nixon, Paul Sherman, Cindy Spencer, Liliana Thelander, Barbara Vanderbilt, Bob Vaughan, and Bev Walker.
