A successful 15th annual Yarmouth Art Festival!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the 15th Yarmouth Art Festival —  visitors, buyers, artists, volunteers.

A record number of pieces sold — 86 of the 165 on display — during the in-person show and online followup that ended Nov. 4.

All net proceeds, totalling over $15,000, was divided among 8 local nonprofits: St. Elizabeth’s Essentials Pantry; Friendship House;  Greater Portland Family Promise (GPFP); In Her Presence (IHP); and Yarmouth, Falmouth, Cumberland and Freeport Food Pantries.

The juried show and sale has been hosted by St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Yarmouth since 2009 as a showcase  for artists from all over Maine. The event runs four days in person followed by two weeks of online show and sale. All artwork  from the show can continue to be viewed online in the Show Catalog, along with artists’ contact info.

A total of 683 pieces were submitted by artists from all over Maine, and jurors were challenged to select only 165 pieces that can be displayed in our space.

Returning as jurors for 2023 were:

– Peggy Greenhut, founder and former owner of Greenhut Gallery in Portland

– Bob Keyes,  editorial director at Colby College in Waterville, and formerly arts reporter for the Maine Sunday Telegram.

– Wes LaFountain,  freelance curator, most recently at Cove Street Arts in Portland and at Phillips Exeter Academy, NH.

Artists from all over Maine participate in this show, in media including painting, sculpture, photography, and limited-edition printmaking. The jurying process strives to curate a unique show of high quality and variety. (If you are unfamiliar with jurying, please see the Frequently Asked Questions)

The event was created in 2009 as a unique showcase for Maine artists.
