Captain Lindsey House joins art walk

Rockland — The Captain Lindsey House at 5 Lindsey St., downtown off Main Street, has joined the First Friday Art Walk, beginning July 4.

The inn has been through an entire “new nautical” interior renovation of its guestrooms and common areas. A key component of the renovation is an on-site gallery, produced and curated by Gleason Fine Art of Boothbay Harbor.

“We have always been interested in being a part of the Rockland art scene and many of our clients have asked when they could find us there” said Gleason Fine Art owner Dennis Gleason. “When the opportunity came up to be a part of the new Captain Lindsey House, we felt it was the right fit at the right time.”

Gleason had worked previously with new owner of Captain Lindsey House, Kimberly Swan, when she owned The Danforth in Portland. Both Gleason and Swan saw the Rockland collaboration as a natural continuation of this successful partnering as the vibrancy of the Rockland art community is one that both parties want to support.

“It will be nice to have people visit the inn to see the art, see the changes to the inn and hopefully find additions to their personal art collections,” said veteran CLH innkeeper Patricia Payeur. “We are looking forward to welcoming the many art lovers in our community.”

Captain Lindsey House will be open from 5 to 7 p.m. during Art Walk nights throughout the year.

Unclear as to just how this supports the "Rockland art community."  Does the inn remain an inn, and who owns it.  According to her website, realtor Swan buys historic properties, renovates the interiors, and then sells them.
