Each year, as part of our ongoing community effort, The Gallery at Somes Sound raises money for non-profit organizations who align themselves with our mission:  A long-standing commitment to educate, stimulate and encourage others through fine art and visual culture. 

For the 2023 Season, our goal is to raise money for three local libraries who foster young readers, offer adult educational programs and bring communities together:


Somesville Public Library

Jesup Memorial Library

Ellsworth Public Library


The Gallery’s shows this year will run from June through October and we will donate a portion of the gallery’s commission throughout the summer to each library. 

Here is the line up for this year’s shows and featured artists.  We hope to see you this summer!
