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.
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.
We welcome you to visit us on the beautiful coast of Maine. The gallery is located only 45 minutes north of Portland and 15 minutes from Boothbay Harbor along Route 1. Gallery hours are daily from 10:30-5:00 during May through October, with reduced hours from November through April.
