a round up of Maine art news, openings, shows + virtual exhibitions


August 5, 2022

Dear friends and art lovers,

Welcome to the August 5 Cafe des Artistes. You have just opened a huge assemblage of  Maine art, and an outpouring of opening receptions.

It’s Prime Season for Maine Tourism and the people are here. The weather has been fabulous and so has the art being shown. As I said, this Cafe is packed with news, shows and openings – I hope you will treat yourself to a free self-guided tour.


We are a member of the Maine Tourism Association in Hallowell. Free copies of Maine Gallery + Studio Guide are available at their many info centers: Kittery, Yarmouth, Gardiner Service Center, Hampden, Calais and Fryeburg. Many visiting art lovers pick up their copy each year when they enter Maine at Kittery.
