Keith S. Oehmig, Director – Keith began dealing in American and European art twenty-five years ago at the age of 21. He established the Wiscasset Bay Gallery in 1985, combining his love of painting with dealing in fine art. A native of Chattanooga, Tennessee, Keith moved to his adopted state of Maine while a freshman at Principia College. He graduated in 1984 with a degree in Art History and Studio Art, receiving the Mabel Axcy Dominick Award for his art historical research. Keith has painted professionally for over twenty years, and his works are represented in private, corporate and museum collections across the United States and Europe. He hopes his combined career as artist/art dealer has given him deeper insight into each field, and he loves to share his passion for art with the Gallery’s many visitors and collectors.
