Beneath our bustling market, experience our Wine Cellar Art Gallery, one of Downeast Maine’s best kept secrets. In our spacious exhibition rooms, amid the green of potted plants we display modernist and contemporary art by world-class Maine artists.
We regularly hang engaging and very collectible pieces by Phil Barter, Brian Emerson, Majo Kelesian, Robert Shetterly, Phylis Rees, and others. We also host a large collection of captivating sculpture by Rick Beckjord, Obadiah Buell, Russ Kaufman, and Margaret La Farge.
Shows change bi-monthly as we discover exciting new artists and reconnect with some of our favorites. It is our gallery’s mission to support talented local artists and encourage the community in their patronage.
Step outside your busy day, and spend some quiet park bench moments with seascapes, landscapes, and abstract expressionism in the Wine Cellar Art Gallery at John Edwards Market. The unsuspecting will be very pleasantly surprised.
For the months of April & May, we are very happy to host the works of Matthew Barter, Brian Emerson, & Brent Anders.
We welcome Matt Barter, currently of Richmond, Maine. Matt is showing paintings on board and canvas. These pieces focus on iconic Downeast images and the stories of the people who live here told in bold, bright colors and a homegrown primitive style. We are so glad to hang his work.
We are very happily showing new works by Brian Emerson of Portland. Brian's paintings on board and canvas pop with an exuberant abstract style that sings the joy of the moment. Reflective garden discoveries and seaside musings are portrayed with seemingly carefree strokes and saturated colors. We love supporting Brian's work.
Brent Anders is an artist new to the Wine Cellar Gallery, and we are excited to host his work. Brent resides in our own fair Ellsworth. His pieces are exacted with such realism, one is impelled to step closer for a better look. Maine wildlife and classically illustrated lighthouses are rendered with colored pencil, pastels, & watercolors. We are delighted to welcome Brent to our gallery.
An opening for this show is planned in conjunction with a wine tasting on Friday, May 5th, 5:00 - 7:00pm. Please join us.
