The Kelpie Gallery opens in South Thomaston

The Kelpie Gallery

The Kelpie Gallery announces its opening at 81 Elm Street in the heart of the ‘Keag village in South Thomaston. Owned and operated by painting conservator Lauren R. Lewis and artist Susan Lewis Baines the gallery will feature works by emerging and established Maine artists. The inaugural exhibition “The Sky’s the Limit” features work by Baines, Sarah Barnard-Blitz, Allen Bunker, Sandra Leinonen-Dunn, Julie Haskell, Pamela Hetherly, and Jill Valliere. Only five miles from the Rockland Arts District and the Farnsworth Art Museum, the Kelpie is located in a renovated barn on the grounds of Pepper Hill Farm Equestrian Center next to the ‘Weskeag River. A kelpie is a legendary Celtic spirit that can shape-shift from horse to water and lives in rivers and streams. The gallery will hold regular openings and workshops in art techniques and conservation issues, supporting the growing creative economy in Midcoast Maine. “The Sky’s the Limit” runs from July 1 through September 28.
