About Us

art, conservation, and community in midcoast maine.

The Kelpie Gallery exhibits works of art by established and emerging artists, many of whom have a connection to Maine or call it home. With every show, event, opening, and fundraiser at The Kelpie, our goal is to engage and strengthen Midcoast Maine's creative economy. We hope you will join us in our dedication to this place, which has inspired centuries of artists, appreciators, and patrons.
