The newly renovated River Arts gallery in downtown Damariscotta.

Damariscotta — River Arts is pleased to announce the first show in the new downtown gallery. The Elm Street gallery will open in July with a Members’ Show. All current and new members are invited to submit one piece for this exhibition.

Artists may drop off work at 36 Elm St. beginning July 8. The final day for drop off is Saturday, July 11, at 4 p.m. The gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is no entry fee for this show.

Membership forms and artwork submission forms are available online at or in the gallery. Annual membership dues are $60 for an individual or $75 for a household. This is a great time to become a member and show in the elegant, new gallery!

Artists may choose works that best represent their individual style for this show that invites all mediums, including but not limited to: painting, drawing, sculpture, fabric, photography, printmaking and ceramic works.

All artwork must be gallery ready and securely wired for hanging. No works over 42 inches wide including frame will be accepted. All works must be for sale and River Arts retains 35% commission on sales.

River Arts will be following Maine CDC guidelines for the safety and health of our artists, customers and volunteer staff. We will not have an opening reception for this show but invite the public to visit the show beginning Wednesday, July 15, during regular hours. Face coverings are required for admission to the gallery. The Members’ Show will run until Aug. 15, 2020.
