Saco Bay Artists

Our mission is to help members to further their skills in the fine art medium of his/her choice through fellowship and the free exchange of ideas and information.

About Us

Saco Bay Artists seeks to enhance members' skills and provide forums to exhibit and sell their artwork. Those forums include workshops, critiques, live demonstrations, group outings, paint outs and summer art shows. The group also participates in the promotion of art and culture as well as public service in the local community. During the summer months artists from all over New England show their work in the Saco Bay Artists shows held on the library lawn in Ocean Park, Maine
