ArtWalks across our state invite you to explore artist studios, galleries and assorted venues in sixteen of Maine’s beautiful downtowns. ArtWalk Maine is your passport to discover the creative communities and artists of Maine, from Biddeford to Bangor, Portland to Presque Isle.
More than eighty ArtWalks are held each year. These self-guided tours lead you to some of Maine’s world-class art museums, galleries, intimate artist studios, and exhibits in local businesses and cafés. You’ll find Maine’s creative spirit alive, well and accessible to you. An ArtWalk evening may include swank opening receptions, street performances, and visits to open studios, where you can view works in progress or participate in a hands-on workshop.
Maine’s ArtWalks are an intersection of Maine’s contemporary art scene, its historic downtowns, and the natural world. Discover artists of island communities, urban centers and revitalized mills. The fine craftsmanship for which Maine is known is on view year round. Local restaurants are open. Performances happen, whether their stage is a theater, sidewalk or town green. ArtWalk communities roll out the red carpet for you.
Traditionally held monthly on Friday evenings from 5-8pm, several Maine ArtWalks take place on Saturday afternoons. Schedules vary. Use this site to plan your vacation or rediscover your own neighborhood. Bookmark us. ArtWalkMaine.org.
