    Wow....Your virtual gallery exhibit came at just the right time, Thierry. I just picked up three fabulous sculptors for a big exhibit I'm wrapping up selecting for an opening in May.

    I just viewed the virtual gallery. And, well, the effort was really worth it. A real triumph.
    The rooms are varied, very beautiful, and work well with the varied mediums.
    I'll keep going back, but my first look at the gallery was breath-taking.

    I just looked at the online show and I think it looks terrific. I can’t imagine how much behind-the-scenes work has to take place to get those galleries ready to go online. I hope you’re getting good feedback for all of the work that you do. Warm regards, Sam.

Maine Artists Quotes

"My aim is to escape from the medium with which I work; to leave no residue of technical mannerisms to stand between my expression and the observer."

Andew Wyeth



Since 2008, Maine Arts Scene online magazine has been promoting Maine artists and arts organizations in new and enterprising ways. We quietly revolutionized the local magazine world by offering a truly democratic voice to Maine artists and arts organizations throughout the state. For a small fee, individual artists and arts organizations can submit their press releases to present their work and promote their events on our popular site and social networks. As we reached the 10,000 visits per month milestone in 2009, we decided to push the online magazine boundaries one step further by launching the first statewide juried multi-disciplinary virtual online showcase. We created a unique virtual experience that resembles an actual gallery space, with various rooms to navigate and art work displayed to scale. In 2012, Maine Art Scene is going one step further.  Maine artists and private collectors of Maine art will soon be able to create online stores and sell their work. Arts organizations including galleries, museums, and non-profits will also be able to set up online gifts shops,  box offices and donation pages.
