Silent%20Auction%20VisitorsThe Harlow Gallery is seeking donations of artwork for its Annual Silent Auction in February. Donations are being accepted during open gallery hours from now until 6 p.m. on Monday, February 1, 2016. The Harlow Gallery is located at 160 Water Street in Hallowell. Donations of art, framed or unframed, are most welcome and your gift may be tax deductible according to current tax law. Proceeds from this event support operating costs for the Harlow Gallery, a 501(c)3 nonprofit connecting art, artists and community since 1963.

You don’t have to be an artist to donate! Make room for the new by donating something from your collection – vintage art, antique art, fine crafts, sculpture artifacts and curios all are gratefully accepted. Donations of art supplies are also welcome for an Art Supply Rummage Sale taking place on January 15 and 16 and can delivered anytime before the 15th.

Drop by anytime the gallery is open (Wed. through Sat. noon – 6 p.m.) or come to one of the two formal donation drop off dates, Sunday, January 31 from noon to 4 p.m. or Monday, February 1 from 2 to 6 p.m. Donors may contact Harlow Gallery staff to make an appointment to deliver donations at other times by calling (207) 622-3813 or e-mailing
