This summer The Gallery at Somes Sound celebrates Maine’s 200th Birthday - and what better way to celebrate than through the creative expression of visual art! As our gift to Maine,  we have selected five Maine artists represented at the gallery to be featured in a solo show,  paired with a non-profit organization who works with Maine Communities and/or protects and conserves our land, waters, and wildlife.  Supporting their cause, 5% of sales from each show will be donated to the designated non-profit organization.
