Overview

A new photography gallery featuring Maine artists brings new life to a 200 year old building in South Thomaston, Maine. Mike Dumont always wanted to open a gallery of many photographers and genres of work. Maine photographers Kevin White, Herman Meisner and Sandy Dolan fill the space in addition to Dumont's works. Kevin White’s striking, larger-than-life canvas images of are realistic enough to make one pause. Herman Meisner’s black and white emulsion prints bring the time tested, traditional photo processes back with a twist; his images are printed on clamshells or glass, in an effect resembling scrimshaw. Sandy Dolan’s award winning marine images make one long for a misty morning on the water. Her work has garnered awards from The Maine Press Association, and is often found in Cruising World and Soundings. The whimsical 3D sculptures of Greg Pinto are also here. Pinto’s adventurous sculptures reflect his fascination for creating with found objects. He creates schools of bizarre fish from thumbtacks, discarded silver plate, and elegant gold leaf. Many of his clever sculptures light up, like the angler fish with the bait to attract prey. The fun is two-way in Pinto’s work; a glance at the fork-tine teeth and thumbtack scales starts the mental wheels to piece out the rest of the materials used in the sculpture. In addition Keag River Gallery also offers custom photo editing, printing and ARTiPLAQ mounting services. Dumont’s vision also includes a plan to offer workshops, host events on the substantial deck and grounds. Keag River Gallery is open Thursdays through Sundays from 11 am – 5 pm. Open June through October.

Unexpected, great little gallery. If you are planning on visiting the Rockland area and are interested in original art depicting the Mid-Coast area, be sure to look for one of the shows sponsored by this gallery. You won't be disappointed.

The gallery offers a great variety of art. It's small but wonderfully set up and maintained. It's worth the stop at the Keag to see the falls, and then stroll through the gallery.

While on a trip to The Samoset Inn, we stopped at this gallery in South Thomaston and were pleasantly surprised by the photography exhibited within a wonderfully restored 19th century structure.....If you like photography exhibits, make it a point to visit the Keag River Gallery.....
