Maine Farmland Trust created this gallery because we believe in farming, and because we are committed to its future. Our vision is of a gallery that captures the vibrancy of Maine’s farms and farmers, the intimate relationship to the earth and animals they tend – a gallery which celebrates agriculture through art. Founded in 2008, our gallery has increasingly become known as “a gallery with a mission.” It has attracted artists from all over Maine who share a love for our rural heritage and the earth’s well-being. We hope that through this gallery, more people will come to understand the promise of farming, and as a result, lend fervent support to our efforts to secure Maine’s agricultural future.
Roughly half of anything purchased at MFT Gallery goes to the local artist that made it, the other part to farmland preservation! (How’s that for a bang for your buck?)
Maine Farmland Trust Gallery recently launched a new website that links to a state-of-the-art inventory system. This improvement ensures that you can view all art available for purchase from Maine Farmland Trust’s represented artists. Visit the site at https://www.mainefarmlandtrust.org/public-outreach-new/gallery/
In the 2016 season, all of Maine Farmland Trust Gallery’s show openings will be preceded by an artist talk from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.!
