13TH ANNUAL SHOW A HUGE SUCCESS
Important note to artists: Log-ins are disabled after entries close.
The 13th annual Yarmouth Art Festival was a huge success, in terms of both visitors and sales, as it returned for in-person viewing after being online-only in 2020.
A total of 98 pieces were sold during the in-person show and followup online sale, far surpassing the 64 last year and average of 45 in prior in-person years. As a result, over $10,000 was raised for Yarmouth Food Pantry, St. Elizabeth’s Jubilee Center in Portland and Friendship House in South Portland.
A huge thank you to everyone who participated as an artist, visitor, volunteer and/or buyer!
The Show Catalog continues to be available (though without purchasing, since the sale’s end Nov. 6).
Jurors selected 179 pieces from a near-record 575 pieces for consideration, from artists all over Maine. The jurors’ selections are in the Show Catalog, linked at the top of this page. A list of participating artists and hometowns is at the bottom of this page.
All net proceeds from the 2021 show — from entry fees, donations and sale commissions — will go to Yarmouth Food Pantry, St. Elizabeth’s Jubilee Center in Portland and Friendship House in South Portland.
Jurors for 2021 were:
– Peggy Greenhut, founder and former owner of Greenhut Gallery in Portland
– Anne Haas, retired art librarian at Bowdoin College
– Wes LaFountain, freelance curator, most recently at Cove Street Arts in Portland and currently 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 to showcase Maine artists in painting, drawing, sculpture and photography.
The Yarmouth Art Festival is presented by St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church, 396 Gilman Road, Yarmouth, Maine.
