Art at the Gardens
If the idea of seeing outstanding artworks by renowned artists appeals to you, imagine seeing them in magnificent settings. As you explore the Gardens, you’ll surely discover the artwork that we’ve placed here for your enjoyment. Whether sculpture throughout the Central Gardens and along waterfront and woodland trails, or paintings and original prints in the Visitor Center, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens is a mecca for those who seek beauty and who have a keen eye for excellence.
The art you’ll find at the Gardens, in both seasonal exhibits and our permanent collection, is of the highest caliber and celebrates renowned artists. That many of the works have nature-related subjects as their theme or, in the case of sculpture, are also crafted of materials from the environment, speaks to the affinity artists have for subjects drawn from the world of nature.
Artists’ talks and tours, along with receptions for the exhibits, are part of the wonderful art-related experience we offer. Our annual Plein-Air Painting event welcomes artists with free admission and the opportunity to show and sell their works of the Gardens.
Most of the art in our temporary exhibits is for sale, and proceeds benefit the Gardens. We even have artwork for sale in our lovely Gift Shop. Please visit Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens often to view the exhibits. Who knows? You might find a piece of sculpture or a painting you can’t live without!
We invite you to check out the listings for exhibits, as well as the receptions and artists’ talks listed in the calendar.
