Two CRAFT Gallery artists are recipients of 2019 Maine Arts Fellowships, awarded by the Maine Arts Commission: Jan Owen of Belfast, for Craft Arts; and Lynn Duryea of Deer Isle, for the Belvedere Handcraft Award. Each artist receives $5,000 in recognition of artistic excellence.

CRAFT Gallery congratulates these two fine artists and is honored to show their work. The gallery offers work of the many other distinguished and award-winning fine craft artists working in Maine today. With the gallery closed for the season, the winter will be spent planning new shows and researching new emerging talent to introduce to lovers and collectors of fine craft.

CRAFT Gallery will reopen in late May in the courtyard at 12 Elm St. For more information, visit or email
