The 10th annual Yarmouth Art Festival was a great success!

Thanks to the artists, volunteers, visitors, and buyers who made the 10th annual Yarmouth Art Festival successful.

The show was held Oct. 24-27, 2018 at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church, 396 Gilman Road in Yarmouth.

Hundreds of art lovers visited the show both during its regular hours and during the popular artists reception Thursday evening, Oct. 25. Enjoy an album of photos from the reception. 

Please see the Show Catalog to appreciate the quality and range of artwork.

The show was successful from a sales standpoint also.  Forty-nine pieces were sold for gross sales of nearly $14,000, before commissions. Pieces that were sold are indicated with the word “sold” in their title in the Show Catalog. (Artists will receive checks for their proceeds within 30 days after the show’s end)

Jurors for the 2018 show were Bob Keyes, arts writer for the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram, and Peg Golden, founder and former owner of Greenhut Gallery in Portland. Bob and Peg have each agreed to serve as jurors again in 2019.

For the 2019 show, the call for entries will go out in mid-August, and see below to sign up for notification. See the Rules page (click “Rules” button at top of this page) for information on entering.
