The Wiscasset Bay Gallery started as a small, upstairs space on Front Street in Bath in 1985. One year later, we relocated to the historic ship-building village of Wiscasset, along the Sheepscot River. By 1997, the Gallery had expanded again to our current location on Main Street, Wiscasset in the antique Wawenock building. Our spacious exhibition galleries, wide pine floors and brick-lined walls showcase fine American and European paintings from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, including works by William Trost Richards, Rockwell Kent, Jay Hall Connaway, S.P.R. Triscott, Charles Woodbury, Abraham Bogdanove, William Zorach and others. Changing exhibitions of contemporary New England and Maine art are also featured on a monthly schedule.
In 2015, the Wiscasset Bay Gallery expanded and opened a second location, WBG Modern and Contemporary, at 8 Federal Street. This location features a range of modern and vintage paintings, prints, and sculpture, as well as contemporary surreal photography. You may browse this collection online at: http://www.wbgmodern.com/
The Wiscasset Bay Gallery’s clientele includes a devoted and loyal customer base from the United States, Canada and Europe. We have also placed many fine works of art in corporate and museum collections across the country.
